you make one of the coolest linux distros for netbooks.
I myself run eb4b1 on my Asus EeePC 4G / 701 which only has 4GB internal SSD.
What I wanted to tell with this post: Would it be possible to release updates in "steps". Everytime when there are updates they come in a huge wave. Meaning 350+MB updates to download.
And since update-manager always crashes without further notice when I select "Partial Upgrade" there is no other way than running the full updates in one step from synaptic or the command line. This process always drives my internal SSD to its limits and I regularly get "insufficient space on hdX"-messages.
That's why I would suggest to release the updates in smaller "packages" ... Let's say 50MB of updates at once. This way the updates would not only take that much time, the traffic on the repo-servers would be spread over the time and with that the download speeds would probably increase to more sufficient speeds (right now i am downloading updates at max. 100kb/s [i have a dsl6000 line available here, so there should be enough potential]).
Am I the only one with problems like these? (I don't have many apps installed. It's just openoffice, opera and filezilla added to the base gnome system)
