    Faster Site (internal network)


    Can anyone tell me how I can make my installs faster?

    I have completely copied the suse.org FTP for i386.

    I can do both FTP and HTTP installs on my network but for some reason they are slow (faster than over the internet).

    Any ideas what I can do to speed things up?

    Can you describe the problem a little bit more? What exactly is slow? What does it do?

    I have done a wget to get all the contents of the ftp server.

    I have set that up on my server so I can do local network installs.

    When I boot up the machine, load my modules, and start the process the RAM Disk and the downloading of content from my local server is slow as hell.

    What can I adjust to make the speeds faster.

    I can provide info is asked for.

    Could the contents of the FTP server have links that are pointing to the FTP server, so you're still installing from the internet?
