Hi,
While downloading or upgrading packages using packagekit on fedora9x86_64 I get an extremely slow download rate. I don't know where it is downloading from.
How can I manually select the mirror? (or enter a list of preferred mirrors)
What are the best mirrors to be used in China?

Thanks,
Kfir

yum install yum-plugin-fastestmirror
