View Full Version : Which Mirrors Are Fast And Consistently Synched to Main?
12th March 2009, 06:00 AM
I had a hard time trying to find a mirror that had new builds I needed from the rawhide report. I randomly went through the mirror list until I eventually found one that had the updates in it.
Can anyone please give any "top" mirrors or how to connect to main when its vital to test a new build?

yum uses a round robin mirror list to get the updates.
If it is not found on any then the mirrors are not sysnced or the repo data is not correct yet.
yum is also restartable and rerunable if you don't mess with the rpm or cache.
If you are wanting a very freshly compiled set of packages
download package set of.rpm from koji and use rpm to install or update
Only download the rpms of the set that are installed on your system
#Rawhaide repo mirror list
name=Fedora - Rawhide - Developmental packages for the next Fedora release

Sorry, what is koji?
Where can I see the build farm at red hat and whats being built?
Where can I download the latest boot.iso without having to wait for the rawhide report to hit the test list?
Im finding the us mirror from kernel.org is nicely up to date for my x64 system.

What I mean is, with Ubuntu I can access the build farm and watch my needed test compiled being compiled, or inspect the build log or use a link to grab the DEB package directly.
Another feature with being involved with Ubuntu is that I can select to hit the main server instead of mirrors so that I can guarantee I am getting the latest code available in the repos.
If Fedora goes more on a daily basis and doesnt have individual build display thats fine, Im just trying to understand how it works :)
