Maybe someone with more knowledge may come along, but this language pack business does take up a significant part of the installation process. –  user25656 Oct 14 '12 at 7:32

I have to agree. The best thing to do if you have a slow internet connection is not let the install programme connect to the internet and update while installing. Connect after the installation is complete and do the updates then. Install time should be 20 minutes or even less depending on the speed of your computer.

To Fabricator4.A novice to Ubuntu OS.Use liveCD to install side to WIN.Dialogue indicate Select language and 2 other:Updates N Software and not clicked.When install 472 items appear and jam at language section.Question MANDATORY mean is it a package install.I choose a language I understand for install.Language is useful if communication between people is understood.Otherwise it is blabbering of tongues in unknown dialogue.A Korean or Hindu will applaud their language is offered.These extra language files wont see light so delete to gain space or keep?I wont mind 2 hours but now 8 hours. –  william yap Oct 14 '12 at 15:08

Unplug network before install - will be 0 hours. The install will still be in your language. You can update the language packs later. –  fabricator4 Oct 14 '12 at 19:54
