good idea. promoting it.
This would be nice to convert it to a tutorial for the new users
This is a good idea. Changing the repos can make a huge difference in speed.
With the current "Select Best Server" it does it for the main packages but leaves the default "3rd party sources" as their default. These should also be checked when selecting the best server.
I realized that some ideas are difficult for readers to understand its content without any screen-shot or rough sketch.
@Alexio, Thank you for your information!
I will try it!
@Alexio, Thank you for your message.
But sadly, It seems that there is not "Ailurus for Ubuntu 11.04 Natty (Mint 11 Katya)" yet.
I don't know that "Ailurus for Maverick" will work or not even if I could force it to install in Katya...
@remoulder, Sure Mint is not ubuntu.
But Mint is compatible with ubuntu software repositories.
Many packages from ubuntu's repos are downloaded and installed in Mint.
In my case, Local ubuntu server("ftp.jaist.ac.jp") is 5 ~ 10 times faster than default ubuntu server("canonical.ubuntu.com""security.ubuntu.com""updates.ubuntu.com").
Mint is not ubuntu, selecting the best server searches for the best mint server.
