Description Christopher Stone 2004-10-15 12:25:00 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041012

Description of problem:
The default yum.conf in rawhide now uses mirrorlists, however the
first mirror on the list is the main server meaning that it's always
going to be slow.  If the mirror list uses a random mirror this will
evenly distribute the load across all mirrors.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Set up mirror lists in yum.conf
2.  Make first mirror the main repository
3.  Yum is always slow until something times out and a mirror is tried

Actual Results:  Slow yum.

Expected Results:  Fast yum.

hmm, maybe I reported this too soon.  Running yum a second time it's
now going fast.
Comment 2 Christopher Stone 2004-10-16 14:44:11 EDT
Closing bug.  Yum seems fine with respect to mirrors, for some reason
it was really slow the first time I tried it.
