arch mirrors

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
is it just me or do arch mirrors die pretty fast?

i've had to replace my mirrorslist several times since installing, its getting to be a minor annoyance.

and before any one ask or says anything, i've gone to

http://www.archlinux.org/mirrorlist (updated my mirrorlist based on this)

and done:

rankmirrors -n #

i just have found that these mirrors last 3 or 4 days, then they "die" out or stop responding for several hours...it is really beginning to make me think of switching distro's once again.

Yeah, I had the georgetown one die on me today. When I was installing, it kept defaulting to a vermont school server but it didn't have any of the packages on it.

I had an out of date mirror only once. Every so often, I just snag a new list from the link you posted. Never had any issues.
