Hello nooby

Barry that is a temporal relief but sadly Ibibilio
are very slow. A file 200 MB big can take some 30 to 60Minutes
despite if one have fast Broadband and those with Dial Up
have to wait for some 5 hours or so?

I normally grab stuff from nluug as it is a lot faster

Hope this helps

I have always used nluug because ibiblio is S-L-O-W

However, that highlights one of the advantages of ibiblio. It has mirrors.

When a pup is on one of the specific servers you are stuck with whatever speed it goes at (and it is usually slower than nluug).

Same here guys, I also use the .nl server or if it is not available
maybe the .hu or any of the others.

But as FatDog and other uploads show it can take more than
24 hours before a new file is available at the mirror.
So a dev have control over the file at Ibiblio but have to
be lucky that .nl decide to have an automatic run for to
get it uploaded at the mirror? I guess that is why it is a mirror.
You are not supposed to upload to it it only mirrors.

Okay free course in 24 hours patience Smile

First off...sorry for the typo.

Quote:
I will try and explain what developers need. They need a site which they can FTP pets, ISO and SFS to.

Developers also need to be able to download from FTP or http (a URL)

Users need to be able to download ISO and pets (some of the pets will be available in the final release) so some sort of bandwdth/server sharing is ideal.


This was the model I tried to use with puppylinux.ca...I figured a safe server for devs was needed around the 2.15 series. Unfortunatly the bandwidth cost me the account and my host with MANY files deleted by the host for over-use. The Florida servers were great but I was locked out thus the demise of that....grrr...It was a great setup for sure in Florida.

Puppy is mainstream enough to need the reliability of institutional support


Agreed...thus my attempts over the years to secure something like this...alas..nada....uni servers are not interested in my locale...to bad for that.

I'll try my original plan and go after my local telco again.

If Barry is interested then we can build off that (If successful at least)..Eric

This is kinda confusing.

Does this mean fi someone offers a solution it must be what ... exactly???

I am just trying to understand that if there is a safe offering that will address our needs what approach is to used such that it will get a proper evaluation to meet the needs of Puppy use?

This post by me intends to understand the criterion that is being asked. And, it is hoped that we can develop what we feel is a legitimate method that will address the dilemma that we are facing.

Hope this helps
Edited: spellings!

tuxfamily.org/ has been Gray's host for NOP - it must be a good host for PupPi/SAP.

Hello ! Smile

Maybe you can try/see E-nautia ? It is possible to use the FTP, and it offers free 10go.
But it is true that Nluug is really very good!

cheers !
