How to change VidaLinux (Gentoo) download server?


I want to change my download server to this site (http://ftp.iinet.net.au/linux/gentoo-portage/) but I don't know how.

Plus does anyone know any good site or thing that can help me with the basic things of VidaLinux (or Gentoo because there basically the same thing).

I'm not familiar with VidaLinux, but I am familiar with Gentoo. There is a section in the Gentoo Handbook on configuring portage mirrors (http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...?part=1&chap=6).

I don't know what VidaLinux's /etc/make.conf looks like, but here is the relevant line from mine:

Code:
GENTOO_MIRRORS="http://gentoo.osuosl.org/ \
http://distfiles.gentoo.org/"
If VidaLinux specifies its own mirrors, then I'd recommend moving (or inserting, if the one you listed isn't already part of the list) that one to the top of the list. Therefore, it'll first try the mirror you listed, then if it fails, it'll try the other mirrors as well.

I hope this helps.
