Add a feature to skip mirrors
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:43 EST
Description of problem: (There's no feature request severity, so here it is...)
Sometimes in Yumex a package just gets a bad mirror or lossy connection and
download slowly - A "skip to next mirror" feature would be neat, and it's
possible now that <ctrl c> skips the mirror when downloading a package from the CLI.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
N/A - The feature is nonexistant
Sorry, M/A should read N/A
Sounds like a nice idea, i will add it to my Todo List.
Is it coming in Yumex 1.2? :p
No. it will not be comming in yumex 1.2,
1.2 will be the stable release of the yumex 1.1.x branch, there will not be
added any new features, just bugfixes & translations. (yumex 1.2 will have the
same features at 1.1.7 has now).
I have startet to work on yumex 1.9, it will be a total rewrite of yumex to make
the code faster and easier to maintain.
The skip mirror feature is implemented in yumex 1.9.2
