Pls! A fast repository for europe!


Ftp.nl is going quite slow!

Unicamp goes to 150 b/s!

pls, give me some european fast repository! Cannot find with google!

Now about a france mirror or tiscali, can you help me?

Another question: is it possible to exclude xfree from upgrading? anytime i upgrade it x crashes and new installation is needed!

Tnx!

ftp://ftp.planetmirror.com/pub/conectiva/snapshot/

not as up to date as ftp.unicamp or ftp.nl but faster...

about excluding xfree: I think you can exclude it as long as there's no dependency problems...

see ya

that may be the problem...

right now, i'm not using snpashot because i've got only one computer and it's the one that I use to work, so i can not test new packages looking for bugs

O servidor FTP da Conectiva mudou agora há pouco para um link de 2Mbps (estava
antes em um link de 512kbps). Em breve, esse mesmo link ainda será aumentado para 4Mbps.
check this out:

O cache do DNS está em 1h já há alguns dias, então pode demorar até 1h (pior caso) para
todos terem acesso novamente.

Como conseqüência do aumento do link, todos os diretórios foram novamente liberados,
inclusive os ISOs.
