After running the pacman command to get the manjaro and arch keys, then refresh the mirrors, and finally the Syyuu my virtualbox install of Manjaro XFCE is creepingly slow.
During the Syyuu, after running for nearly five or more minutes, it just crashed and came back to nothing but a single blinking dash until I forced it to shutdown. Starting back up, it went through the GRUB load screen, then as the five dots fill and rest while it loads, it cycled this seventeen times, and at five seconds each, that's 105 seconds, to just dump out to restart again.
After this restart, it took almost sixteen cycles or 90 seconds to finally load the login manager. This screen no longer has fields for typing, I just did a best guess and got logged in. Which just to get the background to display took nearly another minute. And double-clicking anything takes a half a minute to open.
I re-ran the -Syyuu and it repeatedly told me there were files that were nothing but blank files and some other strange messages. When it finished I tried once more, and it came back with nothing to update. So, I restarted once more, and it took even longer than before to get to the desktop and let me attempt to run anything.
Double-clicking the Home folder on the desktop took more than a minute just to open, and another twenty to thirty before it went from a blank white box to showing my home folders and files.
Before I re-install, anyone have any ideas? I cannot work on this with it in this state.
