why the fuck does updating package repos on suse take so long
maybe it's just that my laptop's wifi is complete trash but it seems to be taking forever

seems that my suse install has been stumped by our old friend, broadcom proprietary wireless drivers

debian handles this well, you can load them up on the install disk and then it does this automatically
but I'm having to pull RPMs from another machine and copy them across on a USB drive
it's a pain

(this has also been the case for every other distro I've installed on this laptop, aside from debian. Wifi does work out of the box on suse, but it's ridiculously slow, so I'm trying the other driver)
