I've got a pretty fast computer, with 4G of ram. (Running Ubuntu 6.06 by the way)
For some reason my install just crawls. The packages load and such just fine, but some parts of the installation, such as installing skins and starting servers take ages. I can expect to wait several minutes for each step.
Running /etc/init.d/zimbra start or stop also takes an exceeding long time.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail.
Do others find Zimbra this slow?
Update: I've just tried to install this under Ubuntu 6.10 running under vmware on my system. It is quite a bit faster than on the native host itself. (in other words, Zimbra under vmware is faster than zimbra on the native host itself.) Could this be because I am running sun's java on the native host, and using gij on the vmware system?
