Thread: Repositories taking hours

  1. #1

    Default Repositories taking hours

    After the base install I activated a few other repositories. They are literally taking hours to download and install. My network connection is good. Is this normal?

    Hi
    Nope, I just did a refresh here, didn't take long at all. Maybe the
    mirrors are busy/having issues?

    Are you getting errors on your network interface? Check with (note
    replace eth0 with your active interface);

    /sbin/ifconfig eth0 |grep error

    and

    sudo /sbin/ethtool eth0

    Does it all look ok?

    It finished, but it seems like my networking is slow. It takes about 10 seconds to load google.com in Firefox. I wonder if there is a problem with my networking setup? I'm at work now, but will run your command to look for errors tonight. Thanks.

    Disable iPv6 and reboot.

    YAST -> Network Devices -> Network Card -> Global Options -> Untick Enable IPv6.
