I like using the liquorix kernel (as do many antiX users), but downloads can be painfully slow (at least for me in Greece).
It hasn't always been so slow, just the last 4 months or so.

Anyhow, are there any mirrors to download from?

TIA

he moved to a new server, there are no mirrors.

That server however was faster by average than the smxi one he was using before, though of course smxi pair hosting is the best out there.

But I suspect the issue lies elsewhere, make sure he didn't apply some apache rule that is damaging greece connections.

I switched to a servers hosted by hostgator in November, that may be when you experienced the slowness.

But no, there is no mirror at the moment. There was some user in Belarus with a misconfigured that appeared to check my server every minute for updates and it threw off all my statistics so I blocked their country :\.

Fortunately, the hostgator servers are located in the same state which I live in the US (Texas) so I receive incredible download speeds and latency. I wasn't aware that their service was so slow out of North America... If someone can create a mirror that regularly syncs with my site (3-4 times a day is sufficient), I would very much appreciate that.

If not, is there anyone I should request a mirror from? Many distros appear to be mirrored by BerliOS, that might be appropriate for Europe.

Thanks for the replies.

Maybe you could try one of the universities for mirror service.
I don't know if they offer or not or how useful they may be. Here is a few European mirrors that MEPIS uses (I'm sure there are plenty more).

Great...so that should help out the liquorix users that are outside the US, and also be a backup if the main repo ever goes down. I added that line to my sources list (commented out though)
