Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 452448
yum always select a slow mirror
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:03:03 EST
Description of problem:
Specially with Fedora 9, every time I try to update or install something, yum
always select a slow mirror the first time. I can workaround this issue hitting
Ctrl + C. It then tries again in another mirror and download the files at full
Is anybody else seeing this problem?
I guess I could configure yum so that it uses a fast mirror in the first try, I
just don't know how to do it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
You can try installing the fastestmirror plugin.
yum install yum-fastestmirror
it should do what you want.
Thanks Tim, I knew it wasn't a bug as such.
I'll try it at home tonight and see how it works.
