From here you can see if a mirror is regularly up to date
You can see where the mirrors are distributed around the world.
Mirrorbits can redirect automatically to the closest mirror from your location, here is an example with a simple txt file available on repositories:
our T1 mirrors are the mirrors directly updated from our build system (ABF).
They serve as origin for all other mirrors, and as fallback mirrors if Mirrorbits or ABF is down.
We have three T1 mirrors
If you want to support us by setting up a mirror for OpenMandriva Lx, please choose one of the three T1 servers as origin with, for instance, one of the following command samples:
rsync -av rsync://openmandriva.c3sl.ufpr.br/openmandriva/ /local/path
rsync -av rsync://mirror.yandex.ru/openmandriva/ /local/path
rsync -av distro.ibiblio.org::openmandriva/ /local/path/
Don't forget the ''TIME.txt'' file. It is needed by Mirmon and Mirrobits to work correctly.
At least '''600GB''' of free disk space is needed
Our T0 mirror, ABF, is where packages are compiled and distributed. There are much packages on it than on our other mirrors, such as source and debug packages, old release packages, personal repositories etc.
Its content can be explored with this address:
Mirrorbits will always redirect to ABF if a file doesn't exist in any mirror. For instance:
