The Fedora mirror on distro.ibiblio.org
is disabled since December 2015
as the rsync configuration is not totally working/correct.
The crawler which checks if your Fedora mirror is up to date prefers
rsync to crawl as it is much more efficient. The rsync URL specified in
MirrorManager for distro.ibiblio.org
This does not work as the RSYNC module does not exist. Looking at fixing
the URL I found the RSYNC module fedora-enchilada but that works only
50% of the time:
$ rsync rsync://distro.ibiblio.org/fedora-enchilada/
drwxr-xr-x 4,096 2016/09/01 22:28:59 .
-rw-r--r-- 151,776,595 2016/09/01 22:28:58 fullfilelist
-rw-r--r-- 180,294,333 2016/09/01 22:28:58 fullfiletimelist-fedora
drwxr-xr-x 4,096 2016/05/17 00:56:09 linux
$ rsync --no-motd rsync://distro.ibiblio.org/fedora-enchilada/
@ERROR: Unknown module 'fedora-enchilada'
rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at main.c(1648)
So one of the systems behind distro.ibiblio.org
seems to have a
different rsync configuration. It would be great if this could be fixed.
The specified HTTP URL is also wrong: http://distro.ibiblio.org/fedora/linux
But I can fix that myself.
Thanks for supporting Fedora.
