    Default Which Packman mirror should i choose and how do i change it

    Hi,
    because of the recent problems with the packman repository i finally decided to switch to a different mirror. But i have two questions:
    1. is it as simple as changing the URL-value in the repository section of yast? Or are there other steps needed to complete the switch? Like some kind of refresh or something?
    2. Which mirror should i choose, are there any recommendations?

    I would take a German one (when you are based where you say you are). The one at GWDG always served me very good.

    Oh and when you have auto-refresh on, it will refresh auto

    Yes i would take a german mirror, you are talking about this one: http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/packman/ ?
    Ok so i do not have to do anything else?

    edit: ok so just changing the url does not work, when hitting ok after pasting the new url i just get an error message similar to this: "repository cannot be created"
    edit2: i forgot the correct suffix, it works now

    I live in the UK and I chose the German mirror and it works fine - no Brexit problems

    From their wiki:

    The FTP server http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/ currently holds 70 Tbytes of data in an xfs file system in the SAN of the GWDG. It is a 2x 8 core Intel Xeon E5-2620 v4 server with 378 GiB main memory. We use a Suse Linux Enterprise with nginx, vsftpd and rsyncd as server programs.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I am using the server in town:

    The server is located in the southern part of Erlangen, Germany, and connected to the internet through 5 GBit (as of September 2013) to the German National Research and Education Network. The current hardware of the server is the following:

    • HP DL360p G8 with Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPUs E5-2640 (2.50GHz, 2 sockets with 12 cores + 12 SMT threads)
    • 128 GB RAM
    • Two HP D2600 with 12x 2 TB NL-SAS hard discs each, as well as a HP D3600 with 12x 6 TB NL-SAS hard discs, on a SmartArray P822 RAID controller in RAID6
    • One Intel DC P4600 SSD with 2 TB, used as (lvm-)cache
    • 2x 10 GBit network interfaces (bonded / LACP)
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Users may have both added to their repo list with one of them being enabled and the other one disabled. Enabling both works, but is not recommended. In case of trouble switch to the other one.

    Code:
    erlangen:~ # zypper lr Packman packman

    Never.

    BTW:

    I have some German packman server active, but there are apparently still important packages missing, I tried to switch a Leap 15.2 to packman packages yesterday and today and got lots of conflicts

    Missing libm.so.6(GLIBC_2.29), libnette.so.8, libavfilter...., libdvdread..., and so on and so on...

    Will this ever resolve?
    Kind regards
