I gather you are using a Spyder 2. It is slow, and not a particularly
precise instrument when measuring darker colors, and this will exacerbate
the general slowness of dispcal. It doesn't explain why you and up with
a bad calibration though. You could email me the verbose output
of a "high speed" calibration, as this may give a clue (dispcal -v2).
Yesterday I tried very low speed (time announced was ca 2h50), I gave up
afater 7h30, and the remaining time announced was about 2h for the
running test; and I do not know if there was a new (maybe more) test(s)
Probably not a good idea if it was so slow on a faster run, and if the
result was so poor.
Is there a way to know exactly how many tests will be done and a better
estimation for the time?
Not really, since it depends on what is measured. It helps to have a
faster, more precise instrument such as the i1d3, and it helps if
the display path has higher precision (i.e. 10 - 12 bit display path
from the VideoLUT to the display).
