I'm still zsyncing my isos with a maveric install and using SDC from there. I'll update and see if i can emulate.
Probably worth waiting till SDC leaves proposed. The extreme slowdown seen here was due to recent udev source updates.
With *udev* downgraded the python2.7 SDC was normal - 3 min to complete, the new SDC was slow, around 20 min., still nothing like the new SDC with new udev, 8-10 hrs.
It is working on retrograde time as the percentage increases. Slower than a snail trying to climb a dehydrated cactus.
No go here on Raring or Quantal.
Well it doesn't appear in proposed anymore so as is the performance s***s
Still no change after today's updates.
