apt-get dist-upgrade downloads slower than d4x


On my LAN, apt-get -u dist-upgrade downloads at 20kbps, while Downloader 4 X downloads about twice as fast.

How do I make apt-get download few files at a time, to increase speed?

I don't think that your problem is the way which apt-get uses to download files. Maybe it's your sources list (/etc/apt/sources.list). You can try to specify a different repository mirror, closer to where you are located (Eastern Europe, I'm a smartass ).

You can try to Google or search this forum to try to find a repository close to your location.

Good luck!!

I chose whatever netselect-apt gave me. It's supposed to be the fastest mirror.

Key word "supposed".

Try installing apt-spy (3.1-13)
writes a sources.list file based on bandwidth tests
Parses a list of mirrors and tests each of the mirrors for bandwidth. Writes a /etc/apt/sources.list file based on the responses it gets.

If that doesn't help look at Debian mirrors and find a mirror closer to where you live. Although closer is not always better. Try couple different mirrors.

Isn't that what netselect-apt should do?
