Or if the mirror couldn't afford to keep two repos, they could use some type of lvm snapshot for taking the sync and then just commit the snapshot once the sync had finished. Not quite as good as two repos but would be fast switchover so almost 100% consistency.Kevin Kofler wrote:Gerry Reno wrote:Just tried to perform 'yum update' on F10 and got this:Mirror not synced yet. There was the big Qt 4.5 / KDE 4.2.2 update push, sothey have a lot of stuff to sync. Please wait a few hours, then retry. Kevin KoflerOk, thanks.I wish that the mirrors could run two repos, one online, one offline and just switch between them with a pointer. That way they would always appear consistent to clients. Whenever a big sync would happen it would happen to the offline repo and once it was finished then the offline repo would become the online repo. 100% consistency.
