In the default configuration, DNF uses mirrors rather than the upstream
[baseos] name=Rocky Linux $releasever - BaseOS mirrorlist=https://mirrors.rockylinux.org/mirrorlist?arch=$basearch&repo=BaseOS-$releasever #baseurl=https://dl.rockylinux.org/$contentdir/$releasever/BaseOS/$basearch/os/
Now sometimes it happens that this configuration hangs, probably because some crappy or otherwise misconfigured mirror is identified as the fastest mirror and blocks it all.
I know there’s always the solution to comment out the
mirrorlist stanza in all the
*.repo files and uncomment the
baseurl lines. But I think this problem should be handled upstream by the Rocky maintainers.
Any suggestions ?
PS: right now mirrorlist hangs completely, and using the upstream
dl.rockylinux.org gives a whopping 20 kb/s. Meh.
PPS (later): now things have gone to a complete halt. WTF is going on ?
PPPS: ah ok MirrorManager Maintenance
