I really hope this isn't a RTFM kind of question. But I've looked really
hard, and I can't seem to find anyone who's ever mentioned my problem.
Actually, it might not really be a problem. See, TeX Live (v. 1.0,
2005.10.13 [starkit 8.4.11]) is taking an incredibly long time to
install. As in hours (3+, at least). Is that right? I am new to TeX, so
I don't really know if this is common, but I'm worried something is
wrong. It's about 1/4th of the way done, so far. I am using
I use WindowsXP Pro. I have 768MB of RAM, an Athlon 2100+ (1.7GHz), and
about 2.8GB of HDD space left before the install started (now down to
2.54GB). I am installing from a DVD-ROM drive which I think is limited to
only 4x speed.
I am very excited about using TeX, specifically for math related
endevours, but at the moment I'm kind of daunted by the entire thing.
