[SOLVED] Chaotic-aur slow download speeds

Hello I am having issues with specifically chaotic-aur. Download speeds are 200-300 KiB/s but with others 7-8 MiB/s. I couldn't find any options on pamac gui. I also tried the solution of this topic Slow download speed using pacman but it didn't help me and I am having issues with chaotic-aur.

Thanks for the help.

First of all welcome :slight_smile:
Chaotic-aur is struggling a bit currently because 99% of the people using this distro are probably using the main server
There is something you can do however: edit /etc/pacman.d/chaotic-mirrorlist and put a # in front of the mirrors you do not want to use. I think our mirror was reported to have good download speeds lately so you might try that one.
Then run pacman -Syu again :slightly_smiling_face:

Currently trying to think of a good, userfriendly alternative. Powerpill might be an option too.


First of all thank you. As mirrors I have these and both uncommented. I don't have any other entries. How can I find other mirrors?
