Changing mirrors in setup doesn't propagate forward
Fri Nov 26 15:15:00 GMT 2010
I just ran into a minor annoyance while trying to run setup.exe
(downloaded from cygwin.com just a few minutes ago): I accidentally
selected a mirror on the wrong side of the ocean, so I hit 'back' and
chose a different, much closer one.
The package list was pulled from the local mirror, but when I actually
started the download, setup used the first (transatlantic) mirror,
resulting in 8kB/sec transfer rate.
Cancelling and restarting setup, then selecting the local mirror the
first time around, worked fine.
Has anyone else seen this behavior?
