apt-get slow

Postby theslut » Tue Feb 27, 2007 10:28 am

Is there any reason downloading using apt-get only goes between 10-20k per second? I'm on a 10/10 line and downloading through ftp/http is fine.

Seems any repo I download from is not going very fast at all.

in /etc/apt/sources.list you can change occurences of archive.ubuntu.com to your local mirror.. for instance, here in Ireland we use: ie.archive.ubuntu.com

To find your mirror try source-o-matic: http://www.ubuntu-nl.org/source-o-matic/
