Mirrors

[ Top ] [ Downloading ] [ Concepts ]

INTRODUCTION

Many large software projects and hosting sites provide multiple download mirrors for their projects, allowing users to choose a site closer to them and to help distribute the bandwidth demands around the world.

Within cygport, the mirror:// notation can be used in SRC_URI and PATCH_URI to allow package maintainers both the ability to choose their favourite mirrors and use an abbreviated URI for common sites.

The default mirrors are usually the central download site or a redirector. Users can select their favourite mirrors by redefining the mirror_* variables listed below (as a string containing one or more mirror sites) in their cygport.conf.

HINT

Custom per-package "mirrors" can also be defined in a .cygport file. This can be useful if SRC_URI or PATCH_URI contain a large number of long URIs.

NOTE

Mirror providers change frequently. If you define your own default mirror, you may experience errors or delays downloading if your mirror goes offline.
