Mint installation - select mirror

Postby Laoyumi on Wed Dec 05, 2012 8:31 pm

I installed Mint14 here in China and the downloads from the main server took forever.

Suggestion: Allow to select the best mirror early in the installation process. Would make installation much faster.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Would using synaptic to select the best mirror prior to installing make a difference? I do agree that this would be a nice option.
