Sulpher Repo,s

Postby buckskins » Mon Nov 09, 2009 19:02

Hello,
I apologize if I am posting in the wrong area, or, asking a silly Question. :oops:
Earlier today had 12 updates/Firefox being 1 of them, I kept getting an error while connecting to the "SabayonLinux official Repositories" "revison # 1259/ Repo identifier "sabayonlinux.org"
it said error, could not recognize download location, then it tried "ftp surfnet.nl" and was able to download.Which is the best Mirror to use, and how can i apply It?
This took 5 tries, each time no luck, then I tried just downloading 1 package at a time, and whala, it worked.
I am a newbie to PC,s, have only used Linux, 1st PClinuxOS 3 years, Ubuntu 6 Months, and now for 3 days :D
this is the best Distro I have ever used, everything just works, And my hat goes off to all the people that made Sabayon possible, btw, is it an offshoot of Gentoo?

Thank you wolfden,
was able to download 5 of the 6 available updates trough Package Manager.The only one I have been having the trouble with today is Amarak/lastfm package is what is "probably" messing around the download.Lastfm you need to pay for to use now, also Kde application.

could not get back into system correctly, so had to do a fresh install.12 hours later<<poor download speed during daytime
<< for me anyways.I :D really like this Distro.
