I don't think this is the problem, because I already calibrated with
3000 patches lots of times without any problem. I got 'sample read
failed' few times, but even with 200-600 patches.
Also, my monitor has a very low drift because it has luminance drift
After the sample read error I restarted dispread and I successfully
created the profile with very good results:
Profile check complete, peak err = 0.226112, avg err = 0.027651, RMS =

Profiling only takes 2 hours, but it's just the last step:
- 1,5 hours to let the monitor warm up
- 1 hour for hardware calibration
- 2 hours for profiling

If I don't need the PC it's not a problem, but seeing an error when it
reached 90% is always frustrating :(
