Thread: Slow & Timing Out

  1. #1

    Default Slow & Timing Out

    Why is updating so slow? I've had problem with just the repositories taking time to autorefresh. I found an alternate URL for Packman that sped that up a lot. Still, when I let yast2 upgrade everything (or manually do it), I get a lot of very slow transfers AND many transfers that time out. I have to retry several times for some of them.

    I'm configuring this particular system for some non-geek users that aren't going to be very patient with this.

    OK, I know it's not the network connection on my end. I have high speed cable and Firefox, ftp, e-mail and everything else run very fast. It sure looks like the repositories are very slow themselves.

    Thanks,
    Clyde


    PS - openSUSE 11.1 with KDE 4.3.1

    Hi
    Things may be still settling after the planned power outage over the
    weekend. I suggest you find a local mirror rather than using the
    redirector.

    Hum, the one link in that page that looked useful, didn't work:

    http://mirrors.opensuse.org/

    Is that due to the down time? Is there another link for this?

    Thanks,
    Clyde

    Sorry...

    openSUSE Download Mirrors - Overview wasn't working, but it is now.

    I found them and have setup with local URLs.

    Thanks,

    Yeh I heard the repos are in a bit of a mess now, but no worries you will be fine.
