Today I finally installing opensuse 11.1 kde 4.2 in all machines.

Q. Using yast software manager to update the system very often I
get a curl error and a connection time out. I retry and everything
is OK.

Everything is working OK but I had to be behind the screen to
interact all the time with this connection time outs. I do not
remember anything like that previously. It may be the server are
very busy.

Any comments.


Either a broken mirror, or a network problem that gives you problems
reaching (a) mirror(s).

If you can provide me your IP address and a timeframe when this
happened, I can likely find out which mirror is broken and get it
fixed (or disabled), or otherwise tell what's wrong.

I get the same problem, connecting from the sf bay area. Looking at
iftop, there is one mirror that constantly pops up with zero download
So I guess that would be a good candidate to check for breakage.

Thanks for the hint.
Testing from a host located in the US, I get a stable 450k/s download
rate from this host for an iso image; maybe this doesn't work as well
from all locations, or not reliably at all times.

However, I could reproduce a hang (nothing is transferred) for a smaller

I have disabled FTP access to that mirror, and I'll notify the operators
about the problem. (HTTP access has other issues on that mirror; it may
become available at a later time.)

Thank you *very* much for the input!

And, you can already test
today, if you want, which is the way to go for the future.

Way to go!
