Adding a mirror [Solved]

Postby ajn946 » Tue Aug 10, 2010 16:10

Hello,

I would like to add a mirror a little closer to home. Sabayon is already synced at mirror.aarnet.edu.au and I did try to add it but receive an error when downloading/updating (not found)?

So how would I go about adding it and only using that mirror?

Thanks :)

I removed all other entries in /etc/entropy/repositories.conf by placing a ## in front of them then added
For the standard repo
Code: Select all
repository|sabayonlinux.org|Sabayon Linux Official Repository|http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/SabayonLinux/entropy ftp://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/SabayonLinux/entropy|ftp://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/SabayonLinux/entropy#bz2#1026,1027
For the limbo repo
Code: Select all
repository|sabayon-limbo|Sabayon Linux Limbo Repository|http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/SabayonLinux/entropy ftp://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/SabayonLinux/entropy|ftp://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/SabayonLinux/entropy#bz2#1026,1027

And if you use portage here is the mirror and sync sections of my make.conf using only gentoo
Code: Select all
GENTOO_MIRRORS="ftp://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/gentoo/"
Code: Select all
SYNC="rsync://rsync.mirror.aarnet.edu.au/gentoo-portage"

Have attached my repositories.conf file please note that this is set only to use mirror.aarnet.edu.au

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once!
