RFE: anaconda needs fastestmirror functionality
Last modified: 2012-08-28 04:05:01 EDT
Description of problem:
Kickstarting from a mirrorlist is fine... what if the machine is in Amsterdam, and my mirrorlist has mirrors in Amsterdam, Seattle, and Thailand... I'm often installing from Thailand. This makes for a very long install, which is totally unneeded.
Can we get some optional logic added to anaconda such that it can be a little smarter with choosing mirrors?
Once yum-plugin-fastestmirror is included in the installation environment, we can enable it.
lorax-18.15-1.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 18 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing lorax-18.15-1.fc18'
as soon as you are able to.
