#324 closed System Defect (fixed)

installation: disk is spinning up and down during loading modules

This issue is not only about the noise, but also the effect of installation speed. Due to this effect, pretty straightforward step takes a lot of time.

Macbook Pro, I just inserted installation DVD and let it run, at first the modules are loaded, like zfs.ko nullfs.ko opensolaris.ko zlib.ko etc. And loading looks like this:

  1. the name module is displayed
  2. the disc is slowing down
  3. after a second it is speeding up
  4. it is slowing down again (!)
  5. repeat steps 3-4, 2 or 3 times
  6. goto 1

Normally I would get entire live system up and running in the time required to load those modules.
