UP 2013.10.06 – Mirrors

These mirrors are synchronized, and you can use them to update your system:

  • Tuxlinuxnews

Unfortunately, Internode has done a partial synchronization where the packages repository is up-to-date, but the Debian repository still hasn’t been synchronized since the August Update Pack.
Please, use our main repositories, or one of the above mentioned mirrors instead.

You can set the desired mirror in the preferences window of the Update Manager.

  1. Do the other mirrors contain the testing repos?

    I’ve been following the testing repos for some time..

  2. No, they don’t.
    There are a limited number of people in the testing team, and synchronizing another 600GB per mirror would be too much for our bandwidth, and the available room on our partner’s hard drive.

  3. Im a new user of SolydX distro. Im coming from Linux Mint XFCE (ubuntu) and i feel alright here with this distro. I like the direction of… “semi rolling release” and because linux mint dropped the LMDE XFCE flavor, i finally choose SolydX for my needs… All is ok exept one big and serious matter which should be priority by the makes/developers of SolydX…

    We are lacking speedy mirrors… Im from Greece… I have only 3 options… Netherlands, Austria/Ukraine, or… USA… As we can understand, the available mirrors cannot hold the rising big user base of SolydX / K. I tried to use the mirrors from Netherlands, but again, its was… painful slow for me, in a ADSL2+ connection 24Mbps/1Mbps (effective 10Mbps/1Mbps to my line conditions)… I just installed SolydX and the latest update pack, but it was painful procedure, because the speeds from the mirror was bad…

    We must find a way to spread SolydX across many european countries, USA, Asia… It is a nightmare updating your computer with SolydX/K… At least for some of us… The smart expand with mirrors in more and different geographical places is the key for happy users… I cannot dare to install a new package/packages not frequently at least because of this…

    But of course, i like SolydX and i’ll keep trying using it… Im very impressed with the good work from the developers, they created a giant which he can stand against Linux Mint/LMDE and is very comfortable switching to SolydX / K… Thanks for your work guys πŸ™‚

  4. We’re always looking for more mirrors. Unfortunately, they are not easy to find.
    Universities are traditionally the organizations willing to mirror a repository.
    So, please contact your university, and ask if they are willing to help out a FOSS OS by mirroring our repositories.
    If more people would do that, lack of mirrors could be a problem of the past πŸ˜‰

  5. i installed today this system and i had some problems:
    first i installed nvidia driver and i made the restart. beck in desktop it was no nvidia driver installed. second time it worked. than i saw that i have some updates. after updates nvidia driver was replaced by something xorg vesa. it was again necessary to install nvidia driver. now it’t ok. the system looks good and i’ll stay with it.
    thank you!

  6. Of course i will… πŸ™‚

    I’ll try to contact with some universities in Athens (by email), and point them the “Get Involved” page, and if they want will contact with you.

  7. Would it be possible to have updated isos?
    At least I can start without having to update on the first run πŸ™‚
