Hi, I just installed OpenSuse 11.1 with KDE 4.1 and I noticed updating went extremely slow… I changed the repositories without luck and then went on to try and download some large files in Firefox.
In all cases my speed was limited to 50KB/s (I have a 5mbit line)… I tried turning off the firewall but that didn’t work.
Anyone know what might cause this?
Possibly try disabling IPv6
Network Devices - Network Settings
reboot needed I think.
Maybe you should try to convert 50KB/s into mbit/s to better understand the situation…

Could be a slow mirror. What happens when you try a parallel download from a server known to be fast? If this download is fast, it’s probably the mirror.
You rock caf4926 Disabling ipv6 worked!

Good to hear. Remember that one next install when you are scratching your head.
I will Thanks
I sure hope these kind of issues are fixed by the time ipv6 really kicks in… otherwise I’ll be screwed
Linux is IPv6 ready, it’s ISP’s and hardware where most issues arrise
