If this is a first installation, and/or you have (re)installed many (new)
packages at the same time, this process may take long time.
Plus, certain antiviruses could slow it down to a crawl, considering the
script has to open and possibly modify each executable file in the
Try to install just base set of packages for the starter, and incrementally
add packages you are missing for your daily work.
