Issues finding working mirrors

Postby 0xnak on Sat Jan 12, 2013 6:06 pm

Hello all,

I'm new to LMDE, but not new to linux (I've been using Ubuntu since 6.10.) Anyway, I seem to be having a hard time finding good mirrors to install updates from. I did a clean install of LMDE Cinn/Mate 64bit. I picked the closest/fastest option after mint-debian-mirrors ran, then noticed everything from packages.linuxmint.com was failing, so I followed the instructions here: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=122213. Both are VERY flaky (about half of them fail most of the time) and I'm not sure why. Any ideas?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

in software sources you can pick a different mirror for packages.linuxmint (if the one you picked is not working as expected)
for the debian repos run in terminal
Code: Select all
mint-choose-debian-mirror
