New dynamic mirror list stops yum in case of invalid mirror
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:55:53 EST
Description of problem:
The new dynamic mirror list seems to assign to you a mirror based on
geographic information. It always assign to you the same mirror and only a
mirror, if this mirror has problems it's impossible to use yum.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
For me, always. The script http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist always
assign to me ftp.cica.es, that have some problem with their configuration,
every time I make yum install eclipse-jdt, I get:
c6.i386.rpm: [Errno 4] IOError: [Errno ftp error] 421 Too many connections (1)
from this IP
Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: Fedora/RPMS/eclipse-rcp-3.2.1-4.fc6.i386.rpm from core: [Errno
256] No more mirrors to try.
But this can be a serious problem.
The script must return, at least, 2 mirrors, to make the system works in the
case of server problems.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install from Spain
No more mirrors to try
A Second mirror, at least.
We've done lots of work on this, does this still pose a problem?
