New Suggestion. Command to select Entropy mirrors [Solved]

Post by albfneto » Sat Nov 20, 2010 19:55

I suggested the development of a new package.

an modification of the Gentoo`s mirrorselect command that may select mirrors for Entropy.
seems to be a useful package.

joost, I can't see that command, and instructions on how to use it, mentioned in the SL Wiki. If you post brief instructions here then I'll update the Entropy page in the SL Wiki accordingly.

It simply pings mirrors and based on the response times it orders the mirrors in /etc/entropy/repositories.conf

I've added it to the Entropy page under Section 7.4 (Available Repositories mirrors).
