OpenSUSE Network :: Tool To Find The Fastest Mirrors?

Nov 11, 2010

Does anyone know of a tool to find the fastest mirrors for the repos? I know some distros have something called "fastest mirrors" or something equivalent. The fastest I can get updates is around 238 kB/s and normally, on other distros I get 10 times that speed.btw, like all the other distros, gives me an avg download speed of 43Mbs

Software :: Finding A Program To Monitor Hard Drive Access?

Jun 11, 2011

I've been looking for a program to easily monitor hard drive access,what I am finding doesn't seem to do what I (and others) want. Does Linux have a program to show me what is writing to the hard drive and where, in real-time? It seems gamin doesn't present the info in a human-usable form and loggedfs needs fuse, which I am not sure is available now. Something with a gui would be nice, but I am not sure Linux has such a program, like Windows does. Other threads here indicate that there are not many choices and strace needs a path, which I don't know yet.

Ubuntu :: Finding The Equivalent To Microsoft Money Where Can Access Online Account And Download The Transactions

I've found the office equivalent to MS office that I was currently using and have acclimated myself to those programs. Now, I'm looking for the closest equivalent to Microsoft money where I can access my on-line account and download the transactions as I have been doing with Microsoft Money. I've recently downloaded kmymoney, but I don't know how to set up the on-line account download.

I am having a problem with installing mysql and mysql-workbench. I installed a group of packages related to mysql on my system and it seemed to work fine.

I get the following error from the Add/Remove software application. workbench-5.2.30-1.fc14.i686: failure: mysql-workbench-5.2.30-1.fc14.i686.rpm from updates: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try. why I can not get the package again to install?

Ubuntu :: Downloading From Several Mirrors Simultaneously?

Feb 12, 2011

I'm tring to download an iso image that's over 3GB. The file is hosted at several ftp mirrors. Is there a way to download the file from several of these mirrors simultaneously so that I can reduce the D/L time? Presently, it's will take close to 24hrs to D/L from just one mirror. I have a 25Mbps connection so my bandwidth is not an issue.

Slackware :: Mirrors Use A Standard Template?

Apr 26, 2011

I have been looking at some mirror pages and I came across an oddity. As my knowledge of HTML, CSS and web page design could be written on the head of pin with room to accommodate the Slackbook, perhaps someone can explain.


What I note is that there are just 23 characters for the name in the first and third, whereas the second has more characters that generally does not truncate the name. Am I right in thinking that this is due to a different template being used when accessing via Debian? Is there some reason for why the filenames are truncated to 23 characters when accessing via Slackware? (Perhaps to keep the overall field length within 80 characters?)

Fedora :: Yum Update Through Mirrors Very Slow / Speed It Up?

Aug 7, 2010

Does anyone know if the Yum fastestmirror plugin only makes decisions based on latency to pick the best host or does it measure bandwidth? On my laptop for the last few weeks I've been getting super slow yum updates (3.5kB/sec), when I force it to use the baseurl it runs as fast as I'd expect (160+KB/sec).

So the fastestmirror plugin doesn't seem to work unless maybe it's measuring latency as fast but the actual download speed is slow. If so, fastestmirror plugin should really take both into account.

CentOS 5 :: Outdated Repodata For Updates In 5.4 Mirrors

Oct 28, 2009

Fedora :: Yum Update - Keeps Hanging And Switching Mirrors During Downloads

Jul 20, 2009

Almost every other time I run yum update, I'm getting mirror problems - this is losing all my confidence in Fedora for several reasons: a) it's wasting time - what should be 1-2 minute updates are taking 5-10 minutes and often (like tonight) not even completing b) since it keeps hanging and switiching mirrors during downloads I wonder if the updates are coming thru okay c) the fact this is not being seriously addressed makes me wonder re Fedora quality. Add to that the constant and real annoying kernel errors popping up re network manager and sierra wireless (even when my sprint card is not plugged in).

Ubuntu :: Compiz Headtracking Hall Of Mirrors Effect?

Dec 8, 2010

recently I managed to install a plugin for Compiz that allows for head tracking. After getting past one hurdle after another I finally managed to compile it and made the webcam work with it in a 64-bit environment... Unfortunately, after I got this all working, the plugin constantly glitches out by zooming out immensely, distorting my desktop, and gives me a hall of mirrors effect. I know the plugin works because if I set some settings to minimum effect, it successfully tracks me and positions windows accordingly. But this makes the effect all jumpy and only works for periods of about 1.5 seconds then just doesn't do anything after that. Also, mouse tracking works flawlessly.

Software :: Downloading A File From Multiple Servers ( Mirrors )?

Sep 13, 2010

I want to download a file (reasonably large) from say for e.g sourceforge. The problem is some mirrors give speeds of at max 40kB/s and I was considering options to increase this. I considered download managers and seems to work somewhat I experimented with axel and lftp's pget. Now I am wondering how I might download the same file from severals servers (say sourceforge's various mirrors). I tried axel by concataneting all server adresses but not sure if it is working. How do I verify that it is indeed using all the servers specified??

Ubuntu Installation :: Creating A Live CD That Refers To Repository Mirrors?

Feb 25, 2010

OK. I've successfully mirrored the Karmic Koala repositories. Now I have, and will have as time goes on, various computers I'll want to install Ubuntu on and point at the repository mirrors (Karmic now, Lucid later). Can I create a modified Live CD that will set up out computers from the beginning with /etc/apt/sources.list pointing at our mirrors, so we don't have to edit it later or tell people to edit it later? I've looked around and not found instructions on how to do it so far.
