setting repository mirror preference
« on: September 20, 2014, 09:47:33 am »
somehow i have lost the ability to set/change the mirror for the repositories in synaptic manager.

i wanted to install MEGAsync, synaptic told me i had some package missing, i tried to change the repository mirror in synaptic, but nothing happens

am sure i was able to change it in the past

i am using sparkylinux xfce version, fully updated

thank you

Instead of Synaptic use Sparky APTus-> Repository to pick the right repositories
Nothing is easy as it looks.

solved itself few hours later. both on synaptic and sparky APTus. i assume earlier the mirror site was down which complicated the process

i now got it aimed at the main server

tks your help
