We’ve been working in a new screen in Cnchi to help with mirrors problems.
More info here: https://karasu.github.io/mirrors-screen/
Thank you! That is such a useful addition to Cnchi. Could you put out a new release of Cnchi though? Sometimes new changes like this don’t seem to show up just by waiting for it to update (thinking of when you added the help me page for dual booting ;)).
And honestly, I don’t think your design looks too bad either. (referring to your comment in the link ;)).
Looks great to me!
@karasu very nice!
Let me take the oprtunity to ask you something:
When new users get that “metalink errors” running cnchi is that related with nonupdated or updating mirrors? If so is there a way for the installer check this and then skip those mirrors?
“metalink” errors can be for many reasons:
Cnchi needs to update databases before starting downloading packages. That’s why it needs a mirror working and updated.
With this screen advanced users will be able to discard mirrors that are not updated as fast as they should, or because for some unknown reason they cannot download from that mirror (like the Ukraine issue we got days ago).
We will have to bear with 1) and 2).
For 1) Cnchi gets its packages list online, so it’s quick to modify it when we detect such errors.
For 2) only advanced users will really know which mirrors work for them and which do not.
