    YAY!

    My netbook was using Ubuntu 12.04 beta, there is no update and the last update was 2 days ago :D It seems it already got 12.04 final =)

    12.04 isn't 'officially' out yet, but the main mirrors seem to be getting it ;)

    Thrown where? Don't see it on mirrors.buyvm....

  • Great,

    Now to see if Ubuntu breaks into a billion pieces under OpenVZ like new releases usually do.

    We don't mirror the ISO's since they aren't useful for users within the LAN. Outside speeds are capped at 1Mbit/sec but I may up it some more.

    The init bug is at least addressed in mainstream.

    I only support LTS releases (Ubuntu has too many issues to spend time building non-LTS templates only for them to be obsolete a few months later) - so I have lots to check since 10.04 LTS :P

    If an OS isn't good for at least 1 year I don't bother with it (rolling releases excepted of course)

    Yea, 11.x had a bug where INIT would sit and rip 100% CPU looking for flags that didn't exist. There was patched init's but those took a while to get going. We ended up simply pulling init from 10.x and chattr'ing it in place.

    Ah, I think Gentoo had the same issue too (Gentoo would go into an infinite reboot cycle because of it though).

    Precise (/beta) has been running fantastic for me on multiple OVZ .32 kernel VPSs. It will not install, upgrade or run on .18 kernels (notabug).

  • @ramnet said: Ubuntu has too many issues to spend time building non-LTS templates

    Why not start with the official precreated ones instead of rolling your own?

    I was running BETA2 on an .18 without issue. I'll fiddle with FINAL and see if I can make it play nice :) probably just needs some adjustments to the version masking.

    I usually upgrade the old ones I have, and package those.

    And then I can give my clients upgrade instructions (since the normal upgrade usually has issues with Ubuntu).

    @djvdorp Check the above comment at http://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/2407/paypal-notice-of-policy-update#Form_Comment I think @Francisco is cluing you in here that there are no plans on the table for stock other than casualties.

    @TheHackBox @quirkyquark @rds100

    When I last asked someone with Canonical about it, they said no mirror in the US is capable of handling the load Ubuntu has when they make a release.

    Even the ANL US mirror setup a demo (which has 10gbps connectivity) fell over when they tried it a few years ago.

    Right now, Ubuntu USA needs about 30gbps during the couple weeks after each release. This is more network capacity than all the major US OSS mirrors have combined.

    This is why Canonical runs these mirrors themselves for USA instead of using the existing free OSS mirror network. And even then they can barely handle the load.

    us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.88.25 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.88.26 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.88.28 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.88.29 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.92.151 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.92.152 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.92.153 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.92.154 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.92.170 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.92.176 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.92.177 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.92.179 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.92.180 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.92.181 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.92.182 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.92.183 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.92.184 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.88.22 us.archive.ubuntu.com. 423 IN A 91.189.88.23

    That's 19gbps just for the US/CA from Canonical. Before you count the mirror load on the free mirror servers hosted in the US (the 3 biggest being mirror.anl.gov (10gbps) mirror.pnl.gov (10gbps) and mirror.us.leaseweb.net (4gbps) along with a dozen or so 1&2gbps mirrors.

    Funnily enough, the New Zealand mirrors for both Ubuntu and Debian are actually in California and even now, very lightly loaded ;)

    @quirkyquark said: New Zealand mirrors for both Ubuntu and Debian are actually in California and even now, very lightly loaded ;)

    Most of the smaller mirrors would tend to be.

    The unofficial mirrors are also usually lightly loaded. I usually use http://mirrors.xmission.com/ since it seems almost nobody uses it. They have the Ubuntu 12.04 archive + iso's on there now.

    BTW, Unofficial Ubuntu NZ mirrors: ftp://ftp.citylink.co.nz/ and ftp://ucmirror.canterbury.ac.nz/ubuntu/

    Full Ubuntu Unofficial Mirror List is here: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archivemirrors

    It's generally a good idea to switch to one of the unofficial mirrors - the official ones are always bogged down every 6 months when releases happen.
