Use httpredir.debian.org?
« on: February 11, 2017, 05:33:48 AM »
Hello GMaq, and great thanks for this new AVLinux version.

I would like to suggest what seems like a modest improvement:
Would you consider using this redirector in /etc/apt/sources.list?
http://httpredir.debian.org/

This would remove one step in the customization of AVLinux: those of us living far from Canada currently have to replace ftp.ca.debian.org/debian/ with their nearest mirror. (At any rate, I had to do so, because updates were otherwise very slow.)

According to the docs, this redirection does not have any drawbacks; would other AVLinux users share their experience?

Thank you for attention.
