Software Mirroring Service

This software mirror is provided by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering on a Gigabit uplink, accessible both through IPv4 and IPv6. We are happy to mirror additional software archives upon request, subject to space constraints on our mirror server. If there's a software archive for which a local mirror would be useful to you and it isn't listed here, please let us know.

Mirror List

Using a Mirror

Arch Linux

Edit the file /etc/pacman.conf/ and add the following line in the specified sections, replacing ARCH with i686 or x86_64, according to your architecture:

[core]
Server = ftp://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/archlinux/core/os/ARCH
 
[extra]
Server = ftp://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/archlinux/extra/os/ARCH
 
[community]
Server = ftp://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/archlinux/community/os/ARCH

Refresh the package list from the new repository:

$ pacman -Syy

Debian GNU/Linux

Edit the list of sources:

$ nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Here is a recommended /etc/apt/sources.list for Debian (stable release), using our mirror:

deb http://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/debian lenny main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/debian lenny main non-free contrib

Refresh the packages list from the new repository:

$ apt-get update

Eclipse

Go to Help → Software Updates…. Under the tab Available Software you'll find the Add Site… button. Click on it and insert the following URL: http://ftp.rnl.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/pub/eclipse/updates .

Gentoo Linux

Edit the file /etc/make.conf and add the following lines:

Sabayon

Edit the file /etc/entropy/repositories.conf and add the following lines:

# Sabayon stable repository
