I live in The Netherlands. The mirror server in synaptic is set to server for the usa. To what mirror server should i set it here in Holland? Or can i leave it set to the default setting.

Hello
In Synaptic > Settings > Repositories, if you select 'other' from the 'Download from:' dropdown menu, you can run a test to find the best server for your location.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Thanks, i found that already but not sure what server in The Netherlands to pick. If i click on best server i get a different one everytime i use it..so bit confusing what server to use. Also before i had it changed to a dutch server and when i tried to install the 3.18 kernel i got message that it couldnt find it. CVhanged the server to the main us server and no problem installing kernel 3.18

I would use the archive.ubuntu  one which is normally the main server and then click reload.

Do a timed ping (not sure how it is done, sorry, maybe others know?!?) on various servers.

-----

You can also find their IP (use ping) and then find their IP locations using one of the online IP location finder in

https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=ip+location&ia=about

Then choose the server nearest you.

I did that after i changed the server to a dutch one and then got the error message that the server couldnt find the kernel.
I am sorry but i forgot to write down which server it was and cant remember it.

Used the option repositories to get the list. Is that not the correct list?
