I am successful in creating a local Mageia 2 repo

Postby wilcal » Nov 28th, '11, 02:15

I have been able to successfully create a local
repository and use that as my media source. I am
using as my source:

rsync://mageia.mirror.dkm.cz

Data rates are good even though they are thousands
of miles away. Using exactly the same commands I am
unable to use:

rsync://mirrors.kernel.org

Even though I use kernel.org as my source for Mandriva.
I tried lots of other sources but found them way
to slow. I live in San Diego CA a long way away
from most of the servers. The Mageia repo presently
contains about 18,290 files and 20GB of data. I
typically update my repo's about 1x per day.

I see you're excluding the debug repository :shock: but what is not working when rsync'ing from mirrors.kernel.org?

I only mirror the release and update parts
of the repo at this stage. Initially mostly
because I had no idea how really big it was
and my relatively low bandwidth to the source.
As we get along here I'll include more parts.

The repo is there but freezes when I try to get files from it.
Ever since mirrors.kernel.org went down a couple
months ago I've had problems rsync'ing with it. Even
with the Mandriva repo up there. I've even tried:

mirrors1.kernel.org
mirrors2.kernel.org
mirrors3.kernel.org

mirrors1.kernel.org
mirrors2.kernel.org

Strange as they all resolve to "mirrors2.kernel.org (149.20.4.71)"

Just a thought but rsync has a different tree structure than ftp
ftp is mirrors.kernel.org/mageia/distrib
rsync is mirrors.kernel.org/mirrors/mageia/distrib
I'm not sure about Mandriva as I'm using carroll.cac.psu.edu for it.

By the way debug is about 8GB.

Many thanks. Used that path and was able to get
mirrors.kernel.org to respond to my rsync request.
Now getting better then 1000Mbs xfer stream.

Glad to be of help and yes getting the rsync mirror structure is a pain if it's different than the ftp structure as you can't or at least I can't use a browser to see it.

In Firefox you can see the route to the Mageia mirror by hovering the mouse over the rsync link in the rightmost column of the mirror list or by copying the link location to a text file.

Yes I know and that's how I found that mirrors.kernel.org adds an extra /mirrors in the rsync path not present in the ftp path.
I still see no easy way to directly see the tree structure of an rsync mirror.
