Gentoo Mirror

About

Gentoo Linux is a 1st class citizen on our mirror. Although the LEG admins don’t use it themselves, several of their friends do, so the mirror should always be in tip-top condition.

CD Images and Stage Tarballs

We mirror ISO images and stage tarballs for x86 and amd64, under /pub/linux/gentoo/releases/.

Portage Tree

To use the LEG mirror for updating your Portage tree, set the following value in your /etc/make.conf:

SYNC="rsync://ftp.leg.uct.ac.za/gentoo-portage"

We also mirror daily snapshots of the Portage tree in /pub/linux/gentoo/snapshots/.

Distfiles

The distfiles are mirrored at /pub/linux/gentoo/distfiles/. You can use the LEG mirror for your distfiles by setting the following value in your /etc/make.conf:

GENTOO_MIRRORS=http://ftp.leg.uct.ac.za/pub/linux/gentoo
