I started a Ropieee XL install last night and had to continue it this morning and now into this afternoon. taken on the order of 5 hours to “configure” my RPI 4b today and another 3 hours last night and its still not done. In the initial configure I powered it off after ~90 min. and changed the SD card from a Samsung Evo (U1) to a SanDisk Extreme (U3) and certainly did not see the decrease of 3x in time -rather it seems to be about the same.
This morning I setup the XL parameters (DLNA, Airplay on) and its been configuring my device for 2.5
hours - I then gave up and started a standard (non XL) install on a Samsung Evo card. No change, hours into it, I’ve had enough.
My other installs, about a dozen all told and the last one about 6mo. ago, have always been about an hour or two from start to finish. My network has not is only getting faster - its running over ethernet (260 Mbps down and 6.5 Mbps up).
Is this a normal install time?
