[mythtv-users] Mythfilldatabase runs for ever

Hi there,

I have managed to get things setup initially, running on Debian unstable,
and have run the /etc/cron.daily/mythtv-backend.
This has now been running for 10 hours straight causing the machine
(Athlon 2000+/512MB) to become *very* slow and unresponsive.
Is this normal?
How long should it run for?

Would people recommend Debian as the host OS for MythTV - I am used to it
as it is installed on all of my servers (6 of 'em :-) ) but if a different
distie   makes things easier/quicker etc. then I am happy to experiment...
