so, you can have gentoo distro mirrored but not sabayon! because gentoo is .. gentoo!
if is not mirrored you can try to persuade optus admins to add sabayon distro to other distros ...
if is mirrored still can be a missing entry in /etc/entropy/repositories.conf.d/entropy_sabayon-weekly if that mirror is not announced to sabayon developers!
if this is the case then at first the mirror need to be put manually as a new text line in entropy_sabayon-weekly like other entries with mirror.optus.net/sabayon/entropy
to do that do yourself a little favor and use GNU Midnight Commander! GNU Midnight Commander is the king when you need to edit config files and you are a linux newbie!
the you can try a equo repo mirrorsort sabayon-weekly if that mirror is really the fastest mirror available! if it is that manually added entry will keep the first position on the list after mirrorsort test is over
and now remains one last thing, sabayon distro developers announced about this new mirror, and and official request to be included in the list of mirrors used by entropy in the next version of sabayon linux distro
Thanks for your helpful advice totedati!
Hmm.. Optus has a directory containing Sabayon stuff again at the time of this posting but it seems broken/incomplete. I asked lxnay to remove it from the official mirror list for now.
I'm not using Sabayon any more.
Switched to OpenSUSE instead.
Regards & thanks,
