I'm at the point in my installation where I run `emerge --sync`. It ran through it's huge list of files and such until it got the ">>> Updating Portage cache: x%" section. I ran smoothly at first, gaining another % every 3-5 seconds or so, but once it hit about 50% it got unearthly slow! It's been about 20 minutes to go from 51% to 52%. The hard drive is accessing at "normal" intervals, but it just isn't gaining much. Is this normal? I have a slower hard drive (ATA/33), but still, it was running fine earlier; at this rate, it might finish next week sometime!

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Duplicate Threads, see Emerge sync takes forever, uses 98% CPU
