The main repos are running REALLY slowly for me. They timeout half the time (usually succeed upon retry) and the Abort button isn’t working either. When I try and download the list of online servers in the Software Repositories app, it usually hangs around 33% and so far I’ve found no way to kill it other than logging out.
Is there a way to choose repos by location or perform a speed test?
OK, maybe this is better: The official repositories are redirectors that are supposed to choose a repo near you. If they aren’t doing the job you can choose a specific repo from a list. Here’s a list of mirrors if you want to avoid the redirectors: Mirrors Released Version - openSUSE
Oh alright, I didn’t realize the supposed fastest were already being selected. Thanks for your help!
I get significantly better speeds by avoiding times of the day when everyone else is using the Internet.
I don’t think “fastest”; I think it’s the nearest.
