I have a proxy server which is heavily restricting sites, so just a few mirrors from the list are actually working.
This means that installing with
yum is taking forever because I get a lot of errors like empty response, ...
I know that I can specify a specific mirror. But the interesting point is that the GUI package manager works pretty fine so there is maybe a better way than setting a single mirror?
Update There are a lot of mirrors which are blocking on a connection attempt. My theory is that the GUI version uses threads to connect to the mirrors while
yum on the command line is processing them sequentially.
