Software Mirroring Service

This software mirror is provided by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Tecnico Lisboa on a Gigabit uplink, accessible through both IPv4 and IPv6. We are happy to mirror additional software archives upon request, subject to space constraints on our mirror server. If there's a software archive for which a local mirror would be useful to you and it isn't listed here, please let us know.

Using a Mirror

Arch Linux

Edit the file /etc/pacman.conf and add the following line in the specified sections, according to your preference:

[core]
Server = ftp://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/archlinux/core/os/x86_64

[extra]
Server = ftp://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/archlinux/extra/os/x86_64

[community]
Server = ftp://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/archlinux/community/os/x86_64

Refresh the package list from the new repository:

pacman -Syy

Debian GNU/Linux

Edit the list of sources:

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Here is a recommended /etc/apt/sources.list for Debian (stable release), using our mirror:

deb http://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/debian lenny main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/debian lenny main non-free contrib

Refresh the packages list from the new repository:

apt-get update

Gentoo Linux

Edit the GENTOO_MIRRORS variable in /etc/portage/make.conf:

GENTOO_MIRRORS="https://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/gentoo/gentoo-distfiles"

Then, replace sync-uri in repos.conf or create the /etc/portage/repos.conf/gentoo.conf file if it does not exist:

[DEFAULT]
main-repo = gentoo

[gentoo]
location = /usr/portage
sync-type = rsync
sync-uri = rsync://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/gentoo/gentoo-portage

Sabayon

Edit the file /etc/entropy/repositories.conf and add the following lines:

# Sabayon stable repository
repository|sabayonlinux.org|Sabayon Linux Official
repository|http://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/sabayon/entropy|http://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/sabayon/entropy#bz2
# Sabayon unstable repository overlay
repository|sabayon-limbo|Sabayon Linux Limbo
repository|http://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/sabayon/entropy|http://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/sabayon/entropy#bz2

You may have to comment other entries (by placing a '#' in front of them) to force equo to use RNL's mirror only.
