Updating your repo info if you started with OurDelta d6

If you start with the d6 build, you probably have ourdelta.org in your repo files rather than mirror.ourdelta.org. Since we moved to using download mirrors, you need to update your repo config files. There are redirects in place for download users, but yum/apt-get generally don’t like redirects. For details on what your config should now look like, just take a peek at the information for each distro we currently support:

Once you’ve fixed this up, updates should be painless in the future (i.e., updating to the current d7 build -recommended! and beyond). The RHEL/CentOS system in particular is flexible, since we the release RPM set up default to using an online list of mirror sources. But again, you can of course edit all of this to your liking.

OurDelta mirrors – transient issue

Alrighty, my mistake. In the setup of the mirror infrastructure, I stuffed up the server alias logic so that some yum and apt-get requests will be failing at the moment (specifically on the us mirrors). The uk mirror should be ok. Either temporarily override your config for the uk mirror, or wait a few hours as things gets sorted on those systems. Sorry!

Update: all fixed now – and it seems the mirror people are smarter than I anyway 😉

We’ll get some testing and monitoring in place for this kind of thing, it’s obviously very tricky to spot such problems otherwise.
