the debian repos are truly large. that's the bulk of what you are seeing.

lenovo s21e - antiX-19 beta 2 (live-USB)
FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

It takes about 10 seconds over here.. It would be nice if you would first ask if other people have the same issue going on instead of jumping straight to telling the developers what to do with their precious time. This comes across very rude. Remember these people are NOT paid for the work they do here.
Not to mention that the vast, huge majority of those 52,000 packages are in the Debian repos and are out of our control. Try a experiment: disable the MX and antiX repos, leave only the Debian ones, and time how much faster the scan is.

We have floated the idea of having a "moving day" thread where users nominate test repo packages they'd like moved into main, since we don't get any feedback at all on too many of those.

unchecked debian repositories in synaptic, left mx repositories.
yes, much better with mx 1978 packages in stable repo.

That's the exact opposite of the experiment I suggested...and you do really need the Debian repos.

You need them for security updates. If you install any additional packages from MX, they may require extra runtime libraries from the Debian repos. You could enable them only for update checks and if you get missing dependency errors, though.

same thought, just checked debian security/update. stable repo with 3782 packages, acceptable. :happy:

ps:
only uncheck debian stretch repostiory out of the 5 repositories in synaptic.
that left nearly 4k secure/update packages remain in stable repo, less redundant 48,000 packages. :popcorn:

Code: Select all
