wikipedia install.. again:) Uncompressing the dump

Well this is my second wikipedia installation. And this time I guess I ll try and document it step by step as much as possible.

[root@httpd1 wiki]# time bunzip2 enwiki-latest-pages-articles.xml.bz2

real 42m17.283s
user 36m7.756s
sys 2m9.497s
[root@httpd1 wiki]# ll -h
total 13G
-rw-r–r– 1 root root 13G 2007-11-28 21:31 enwiki-latest-pages-articles.xml
[root@httpd1 wiki]# ll
total 13375388
-rw-r–r– 1 root root 13683010813 2007-11-28 21:31 enwiki-latest-pages-articles.xml

Actual size of the bz2 dump

-rw-r–r– 1 root root 3183362146 2007-11-28 21:31 enwiki-latest-pages-articles.xml.bz2
-rw-r–r– 1 root root 3.0G 2007-11-28 21:31 enwiki-latest-pages-articles.xml.bz2

So it took me 42 mins to uncompress it. 🙂 More to follow as and when I get more done.
