up2date slow as a donkey ?

Recommended Posts

if like me your fedora up2date is slowwwwwwwwwwwww then try a different mirror

 

you'll need to edit a file called

 

/etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

 

the default file is below fyi:-

 

 

 

 

 

### this describes the various package repos up2date will look into
### for packages. It currently supports apt-rpm repos, yum repos, 
### and "dir" repos


### format is one repo entry per line, # starts comments, the
### first word on each line is the type of repo. 
                                                                                 
### the defalt rhn (using "default" as the url means 
### use the one in the up2date config file
#up2date default

### When a channel-label is required for the non up2date repo's,
### the label is soley used as an internal identifier and is not
### based on the url or any other info from the repo. 

### an apt style repo, this time arjanv's 2.6 kernel repo
### format is:
### type  channel-label      service:server     path        repo name

#apt arjan-2.6-kernel-i386 http://people.redhat.com ~arjanv/2.5/ kernel

### Note that for apt repos, there can be multiple repo names specificed
### space seperated. 

### an yum style repo 
### format:
### type  channel-label     url 

yum fedora-core-1 http://fedora.redhat.com/releases/fedora-core-1
yum updates-released http://fedora.redhat.com/updates/released/fedora-core-1
#yum updates-testing http://fedora.redhat.com/updates/testing/fedora-core-1

### an local directory full of packages
### format
#dir my-favorite-rpms-i386-9 /var/spool/RPMS/


# multiple versions of all repos except "up2date" can be used. Depenencies
# can be resolved "cross-repo" if need be.

 

the faster mirror i'm currently using is edited into this file and you can see my ammended sources file below
