Re: Texlive Source in Hong Kong
Although you have probably thought of this already, a list of CTAN mirrors is available here (including several in China):
I am not clear whether you are using TeX Live's small network installer package or attempting to download the large .iso file. If you are using the network installer package, there is a discussion thread below which includes some examples of how you could structure a command to map to a different mirror:
"tl09 release status: coming up
." 22 Sept. 2009.
(I have never tried this myself, so I am unsure at what point you need to issue this command).
Another example where it appears that a specific mirror is being targeted:
If neither of these works for you, it is possible to download the large .iso file via BitTorrent:
HTH and Good luck,
