    How can I assign my favorite mirror?

    I can see the mirror list in https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mirr...dora/27/x86_64 (yes, I'm still using F27 because of F28 bugs.....) but I want to know how to set which mirror I download from using dnf.

    How?

    Thanks in advance!

    Refer to "man dnf.conf". Dnf provides a means of defining a mirrorlist per repository.
    mirrorlist
    string

    URL of a mirrorlist for the repository.
    I believe you would add this entry to the [<reponame>]section within the repo file (repo files found in /etc/yum.repo.d/. Never having used this before myself, I assume the "url" could be a local file if you wanted to list multiple mirrors, or just the mirror url itself for a single mirror.

    Thank you! I saw the repo file and found the mirror list. So it's very close. Thank you for your info.

    Also, I just happened across this link in another thread that explains another method to do this.
