Change Entropy Mirrors [Solved]

Post by cameljockey91 » Tue Oct 27, 2009 2:54

Hey all,

I was wondering if anyone could tell me/link me to how to change the default entropy mirror. It is currently using the default (garr.it), and I was wondering how i could go about using one closer to home (prefereably ibiblio.org or virginia tech).

I've searched the forums and google but to no avail. I know I am missing something but i dont know how to find it.

Thanks!

You can change it in Sulfur or you can edit /etc/entropy/repositories.conf
Notice the order is inverse.

Sorry, I should have been more specific;
Where can I find out exactly which mirrors are available that host packages? I've noticed that the mirrors that host Sabayon iso's don't necessarily have entropy packages on them.

I've come across that wiki quite a few times.

So does that mean that the only mirrors available for entropy to use are the ones already in the repositories.conf file, and the Limbo repositories?

Actually, I remember to see a mirror of entropy packages which were not listed but I wonder if it's a good mirror... after all, they didn't mail entropy team to tell about it.
