Slackware mirrors are not updating!


Hi.

I have noticed that over the day or so since the last -current upgrade, not one server other than the slack ftp (which is always dog-slow) has updated.

What's going on?

I checked the carol site (the first one listed under usa) and it's up to date with the most recent changes to -current.

Hm, yes it is up to date, but my usual mirrors, TDS, oregon state, and pair (the fastest ones) are not. very odd...maybe the slack ftp is really getting hammered as the mirrors try to get their update from it?

It takes some time for the mirrors to sync. Countless official and unofficial mirrors are getting the updates at the same time. That's one of the reasons one should *never* download from ftp.slackware.com. It affects countless other users, because their mirrors do not have the opportunity to synchronize.

FYI,

Found that ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/dist...kware-current/ is updated with Pat's Sept. 10 changes.

Used this root in my swaret.conf a few minutes ago to download and upgrade to current.
(Yesterday even this mirror only would partially download the Sept. 08 changes, so progress is being made).

It does seem like an awfully unusual delay. I wonder if it is because of Pat's warning about syncing up deleting existing ISOs.

I don't remember this happening before since 9.0.
It makes actually testing current hard, so increasing the chances of 10.2 having problems

I can tell you that I'm almost 100% sure that carroll synced every 8 hours. And when it syncs, its slow. But at least it doesn't count for my bandwidth and I have a really really fast line to it (I go to Penn State)

FYI,

Took a couple of attempts, but ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/dist...kware-current/ has the Sept. 12 current changelog and files for download.

Maybe these will the last changes before code is frozen for 10.2
