hello @vivekramakrishnakona i hava found some challenges while cloning

" Cloning into ‘OpenELIS-Global-2’…

im using ubuntu

I guess this issue is due to internet speed. When you are cloning, make sure you have sufficient internet speed. If not, you can use the following command to clone with a shallow copy

git clone <url> --depth=1

Thanks alot, I actually realised when I read the docs that I need to have Ubuntu server instead of desktop

thanks for the advise, i tried it out and still having the same results, network has been unreliable these ends. but luckily enough, i managed to set up Ubuntu server, though docker is still challenging me to install

which OS (primary) you are using?

I am using Ubuntu server 22.04.

I have good news, it is now promising. I have docker up and running, cloning is also done

could this affect me along the way?
