New mirror in Finland - needs testing

Hi everyone,

I am using Manjaro for quite a while and now it is time to contributing back.
I noticed that there are no mirrors in Finland, so I created one.

Details:
HTTP: http://manjaro.kyberorg.fi/
HTTPS: https://manjaro.kyberorg.fi/

Repos: Stable/Testing/Unstable, ARM Stable/Testing/Unstable

Reachable at IPv4 and IPv6
Hosted by Hetzner, location: Helsinki.

Syncing: rsync://mirror.service.org/repo.manjaro.org/repos/
Sync freq: 30min

Feel free to test it and contact me here or via email (alex@kyberorg.io)

As @Fabby mentioned you can add by modifying /var/lib/pacman-mirrors/custom-mirrors.json:

[
    {
        "branches": [
            1,
            1,
            1
        ],
        "continent": "Europe",
        "country": "Finland",
        "last_sync": "00:00",
        "protocols": [
            "https",
            "http"
        ],
        "resp_time": 0,
        "url": "https://manjaro.kyberorg.fi/"
    }
]

Do you want your testers to only reside in :finland: or can they be from another country in :eu:

:question:

I think the reason should be obvious. :wink:

@Fabby any country worldwide.
I personally use it from Tallinn, :estonia: and it is extremely fast from here (1Gb updates within seconds).

@Yochanan both are supported. Personally I prefer HTTPS as well.

Changed my /var/lib/pacman-mirrors/custom-mirrors.json to contain:

[
    {
        "branches": [
            1,
            1,
            1
        ],
        "continent": "Europe",
        "country": "Finland",
        "last_sync": "00:00",
        "protocols": [
            "https",
            "http"
        ],
        "resp_time": 0,
        "url": "http://manjaro.kyberorg.fi/"
    }
]

and id a pacman -Suyy to rebuild.

I’ll DM you with my IP addresses so you can check on your end.

478.8 MB downloaded for today’s update.

Speed was excellent, pamac didn’t give any hard data (took >2, <3 minutes)

ping kyberorg :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Is everything OK on your side and can we add your server to the official mirror list by now?

(Just checked and can’t see kyberorg.fi yet…)

:innocent:

OK, update arrived in the meantime, but after this update, I’m going back to my fastest server now as it’s not only fast but also in sync all of the time…

Mirror works fine to me (also in Finland :smile:). Glad that there is some close and fast mirror available.

@Fabby, What mirror is updated constantly? I suppose that all mirrors have some interval. 2h seems reasonable to me…

Would be nice. It is almost month online and had only 1 minutes (for reboot) downtime.

I sync every 2 hours and monitor it.

Okay, from now on mirror syncs every 30 mins. I hope they won’t ban me, if I sync this often.

Question to all: how critical is IPv6 for you ?

I have both, but if you have IPV6, why would you take it away? It’s the future anyway…

:thinking:

https://manjaro.kyberorg.fi runs under ArchLinux and served by Nginx.

Nginx in ArchLinux is compiled without --with-ipv6 option out of the box. So I filled feature request:

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/70956

Honestly I prefer to use official package instead of compiling from sources every new version. So I would wait nginx maintainer’s response.

I’m using a VPS from Hetzner with Arch and nginx-mainline package (also official) and it’s answering IPv6 requests. Are you sure that that option is necessary?

Finally mirror is accessible via IPv6.
Kudos to @cfinnberg.
