I forgot about the above when I tried to do an M1 install a while ago, so
what I got was M0. :~(

stop using mirrors directly maybe. :) if you do that mirrorbrain cant
save you from outdated mirrors.

Mirrorbrain has a poor performance record for my extreme southeast USA (FL peninsula) location. I can't count all the times the zypper screen seemed frozen downloading oxygen-icon-theme-scalable or plasma-theme-oxygen, both of which seem to change every time anything whatsoever and however KDE-related gets built. Widehat has provided consistently acceptable speed, and is the only USA workaround I ever remember (working without X; for Factory, since us.kernel.org omits factory-snapshot) to avoid getting stuck on a minimal speed mirror. I once figured out which mirror I was stuck creepy-crawly slow on, redirected its IP in hosts to 0.0.0.0, and whatever fetcher zypper was using totally shut down, unable to find anything, even after multiple restarts.

Is Widehat ever going to get sync'd?

so for factory i will need to keep the cronjob. goodie. will reenable
that.

Is Widehat different from other mirrors, or Factory different from releases, WRT mirroring?
