    Default Downloading updates using a 2G connection is a nightmare

    Hi,
    I am using 2G mobile broadband connection to connect to Internet.

    Downloading updates using a 2G connection is proving to be a nightmare.

    Its so slow that it never finishes.

    Any tips for me ?

    Hi
    Perhaps can't handle multiple connections to different mirrors? Select a mirror in your locale from the list https://mirrors.opensuse.org/ and rename your download.opensuse.org URL to the mirror you select.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I visited that mirrors page but cant figure out how to modify my existing configuration.

    I want to add the Indian mirror.

    Please tell me the exact url which I should add.

    Also should I replace all the active repos with the Indian mirror ? How ?

    Hi
    Can you show the output from;

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    I'm guessing repo number 1 is the install media? Maybe you have this on a location on the hard drive?

    Hi
    If you fire up YaST -> Software Repositories, highlight the repo to change and hit the edit button, replace the download.opensuse.org with the mirror reference, for example, number one;

    Code:
    http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/15.0/repo/oss
    
    Changes to
    
    http://opensuse.mirrors.estointernet.in/distribution/leap/15.0/repo/oss/

    I launched YAST > Software Repositories > highlighted the first repo > clicked edit > Edit complete URL > then replacedwith

    Code:
    http://opensuse.mirrors.estointernet.in/distribution/leap/15.0/repo/oss/
    then clicked OK but nothing is changing the url remains the same (old one).

    Can I edit a text file instead ? How ? What is the location ?

    Unfortunately there are too many files to edit.

    Any ideas why the GUI is not working ?
