Nekoware Mirrors

Unread postby praetor242 » Sat Mar 11, 2017 11:08 am

I'm trying to setup a local Nekoware mirror, but the only one that seems to work is the local mirror, and it mentions bandwidth is limited on the local mirror. Is there another one, that preferably does rsync?

Thanks

Hm indeed, I was thinking of saying "Why not use nekoware.de?", whose maintainer is a member of this forum and has once claimed that his mirror is always up.
But I notice now that it is down.

It would be really great if Nekoware (and/or equally useful - the rest of nekochan.net archives) were mirrored somewhere that's reliable and fast.

Hmm. I'm a pretty respected member of SDF. It's got a really fast connection, and I'm sure we could put a mirror up there.

Im sure nekonoko wouldn't mind if you mirrored it only once.

That's true. It's not like I have a 100Gb fiber ethernet connection.....sadly :(

I have 30mbit up on an unlimited connection and a home server. I could potentially host it.

Yeah. A faster server would be nice. I started this download at about 8pm last night, and I've only gone as far as the "E" packages. And it's 3:00pm CST

Keep replicating it. I'll mirror it and offer a mirror as well on dezo, one of my servers.

To clarify, it'll probably be HTTP only. But it's better than nothing. I'll ask nekonoko once we're done to take down the bad mirrors and add ours.

Oh, I'm not giving up half way. We're now at the "F"s. I haven't heard back from SMJ (not nekochan SMJ) of SDF to see about a mirror there.

I may use your mirror for 'beta'. I'm on 'current' and it is at.....the 'I's and it's been running for over 24 hours :p I'm hesitant to stop it now

After spending the evening mirroring Elf's server, the SDF mirror is now in place. Address is.....

ftp://ftp.sdf.org/pub/computers/sgi

It's got a phat pipe and is hosted in a datacenter on stable machines. We can add other tidbits to the mirror as well. If anyone is in contact with Nekonoko, maybe let him know.

Enjoy :D

Yo!
Nice work, how about looking into the possibility of offering HTTP and rsync access to it?

Rsync is resource intensive.
