Providing detailed information is great when asking for help.
Does remirror rank all mirrors or only the mirror list that you already have in the file???
By default, remirror ranks all https mirrors but not http mirrors.
With option --p also http mirrors can be included.
Other options may be used for limiting which mirrors will be in the final result. And all mirrors that have problems with connection or keeping packages updated will be excluded during the ranking process.
But with option --of you can add the full list into the end of the final list.
But note that the full list has mirrors commented out for Arch. The full list for Antergos has not commented them out. That’s the way Arch and Antergos devs have designed their full lists, and --of just copies those lists for reference.
I just released remirror 0.1.45, inspired by the country name discussion above. Thanks, @freefreeno !
Now remirror can use country names from Antergos and Arch mirror lists interchangeably. For example,
ranks both Antergos and Arch mirrors using only mirrors from the United States.
So no need to specify --c=USA,United_States anymore.
The new release also provides some more help and examples with option --help.
It is explained briefly in the output of
For country names, you must convert spaces (" “) into underscores (”_"), like “United_States” instead of “United States”.
Also, you can use different options for Antergos (
--c-antergos=USA) and Arch (
--c-arch=United_States) countries. Or just use
The remirror simply ignores country names that it doesn’t recognize.
There is an option
--xfor excluding mirrors. For example:
will exclude the automated mirror.
The default protocols to use are just https, so automated mirrors are not ranked unless you add http to the option
Note: it is useful to look at file /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist.pacnew (if it exists in your system). It shows all available Antergos mirrors, and this list is used as a starting point for the ranking process. Also, option
--ofcan be used for adding this .pacnew list to the resulted ranked mirror list.
--listoption shows the available countries in a form that can be used in the options.
Great that Joe reminded us all about this!
It really would be nice to be able to install Antergos community packages easily using the standard ways like pacman, pamac, etc.
All that users would need to do is to add this new community repo into file /etc/pacman.conf and run
sudo pacman -Syy
As you all know, I already have some packages that could be added to this community repo. And I guess other people too have packages that they’d like to add there.
Now how do we organize this? Looks like Joe’s links provide quite much insight how to do it. Any volunteers who already have some experience about this kind of task and are willing to learn how to set it up?
Or is Joe already a volunteer? :) I can understand that Joe has a lot of things to do even without this …
As I mentioned in post #21, slightly better is this:
Step 3: create a pamac-updater script for backwards compatibility
su -c "echo 'test -e /usr/bin/pamac-updater && /usr/bin/pamac-updater || /usr/bin/pamac-manager --updates' > /usr/local/bin/pamac-updater" sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/pamac-updater
It is better because if you choose to go back to the older pamac, it is backwards compatible.
And hopefully you’ll get well soon! :)
