Hi,

Recently I noticed that there are only ~4 linux mirrors in NZ and I am looking to help by starting my own mirror.

I am just slightly stuck with RSYNC, since I don't have any experience with it. I'm looking for some advice on how to perform the first time sync only.

was playing with centos earlier today, noticed wicks.co.nz is still listing as a mirror for it.

Last i checked (guy who runs it is a good family friend) thats sitting on a pretty reasonable pipe and has alot of bandwidth free still.

Good to know. I did initially start RSYNCing off of wicks then couldn't work out why RSYNC wasn't syncing the index.html files...

B/W is not an issue for me, I have 50TB of available data to chew through. Disk space isn't a biggie either, considering I have 10TB RAID 10 storage.

One reason I am starting the mirror is because of the mirrors (or lack thereof) in NZ

I really want to get my mirror published. Any help is appreciated.

That would be good. The main problem is just the fact that RSYNC seems to completely ignore index.html (even when I specify include="index*")

There's a lack of mirrors in nz? really?

http://mirror.slingshot.co.nz/pub/linux/centos/
http://ftp.citylink.co.nz/centos/
http://ucmirror.canterbury.ac.nz/linux/centos/


Those are al  very very very fast ISP-run mirrors. No offence, but you aren't gonna be faster than them.
I did run a mirror for a while but I found everything was already well mirrored in NZ.

Local mirrors are becoming less of a problem as connections are getting quicker. UFB certainly helps.
