Description of problem:
Yum generally, using fastestmirror or not, if the mirror of a repo is down, change to other online.
FedUp actually no change/switch to a good speed and online mirror if the mirror for vmlinuz, the first step is down or is slowly.
The only way is using --instrepo=, because if the mirror of the mirrorlist is slowly (like darsat.com.ar) FedUp exit and show that the X bytes in X time, so is a slow connection, etc.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 18 64 bit, fedup-0.7.3-4.fc18
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install a Fedora 18 desktop
2.yum update -y
3.fedup-cli --network 19
If the mirror of the list of mirrorlist, more nearest is slowly or down, fedup exit and no switch to other mirror. The only way for skip this problem is using --instrepo= with the master server of Fedora Project.
Add to FedUp the same feature that yum for change of repo when the repo is slowly or down, and no exit.
Actually my box is using F19 because i used --instrepo=dl.fedora etc.
I know that is very dificult reproduce this bug because is necessary a failed/slowly mirror in the mirrorlist for the country. In my case mirrors.dcarsat.com.ar because i live in Argentina.
fedup-0.8.0 should correctly switch mirrors if it hits a slow/bad mirror for vmlinuz - the same way yum handles slow/bad mirrors.
