problem using netselect


Netselect is not telling me which mirror is the best to download from. Maybe I am using it wrong. Am I using it right? Why is it not telling me the best server for downloading?

Code:
[root@localhost Desktop]# netselect -vv http://ubuntu-releases.cs.umn.edu/ http://ftp.ussg.iu.edu/ http://ftp.wayne.edu/ http://ubuntu.cs.utah.edu/ http://mirrors.cat.pdx.edu/ http://se.releases.ubuntu.com/ http://ie.releases.ubuntu.com/
netselect: unknown host http://ubuntu-releases.cs.umn.edu/

[root@localhost Desktop]# man netselect

I just installed netselect to see what it does and I get:
Code:
$ sudo netselect -vv http://ubuntu-releases.cs.umn.edu/ http://ftp.ussg.iu.edu/ http://ftp.wayne.edu/ http://ubuntu.cs.utah.edu/ http://mirrors.cat.pdx.edu/ http://se.releases.ubuntu.com/ http://ie.releases.ubuntu.com/
Running netselect to choose 1 out of 10 addresses.

Could it be down to your routing or ISP?

I don't know, but I never had a routing problem before. If the program just uses ping, then it should work for me. I'll try it again in Ubuntu. Right now I'm using it from Fedora.

There is a problem with my motherboards built on network adapter. It got fried. So did another one on the network. I think they both were fried at the same time, so both computers must use a PCI network adapter now. Even though my network adapter on my mobo is fried, Linux still recognizes it and tries to use it. I configured my Linux to use eth1 instead of eth0. I wonder if the program is trying to use my bad network adapter.
