#18 pacman's sourceforge mirror choosable ?



I have attempted to add ?use_mirror=freefr to /etc/pacman.conf but it seems to corrupt the db files
Is it possible to add support to sourceforge mirrors ? as of writing, sourceforge is super slow accessible and makes pacman to fail updating

So I would like to use a sourceforge mirror nearest from my country

Thank you

    nvm I was adding the ?use_mirror=freefr extension in pacman.conf before /pacman.d/ folder was created, instead I add it to urls in mirrorlist files /pacman.d/ and it works ok and much faster

    By default pacman use fast ftp mirror now and source forge only if it doesn't work.

    yes thanks for that I have seen this in the new created mirrorlist files, I was attempting to set a mirror straight after uncompressing the base so I was corrupting the db files hehe
