The Slackware server in China is, suspiciously, up. And ...

Code:
mingdao@jeremiah:~$ cat /etc/slackware-version
Slackware x86_64

I guess the main server has suffered some kind of fatal hardware failure. Time for a server change then.

Hi,

I guess, the reliability of Slackware suffers from this several days lasting webserver failure

if it comes to hardware problem, then i think it's not fair to judge the reliability of the system

No the mirrors are all still fine, people are testing the RC and It's just the webserver.

It is being worked on and I'll post in this thread when it's back online.

P.S yes it is a hardware issue.

And if you need any official source or packages, ftp.slackware.com is not down.

Everyone experiences hardware issues. You can have redundancy but at what cost? The reliability of Slackware has nothing to do with the home site 'slackware.com' being down due to hardware problems. There are mirrors for everything so don't get your pants bunched up.

'AlphaGeek's Unofficial Mirror List' is a place to start.

The above link and others are available from 'Slackware-Links'. More than just Slackware® links!

If I had really said what I thought then the mods would have jumped me. But you got my meaning.

Ha-ha, yes, true enough, onebuck.
Don't sweat it, people. This is nothing to be concerned about.

Is this the same PIII 600 that has ran the site for years?

It is back only to recover the data from the drives. Please do not hammer it.

In the meantime, http://slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/ is being redirected to my mirror at http://slackware.org.uk/people/alien/slackbuilds/ because my repository causes most of the load on that server. The rest of http://slackware.com/~alien/ is readily available (it is also mirrored at the same slackware.org.uk server)
