sources.list for Ubuntu

Using "wget --no-check-certificate", you can download the versions of sources.list for hosts internal to UW campus here:

Additional versions at the bottom of this page.


The main Ubuntu sites are often loaded. I'd like to be a polite net.citizen and use our resources to help out. For the time being, my mirroring is experimental. We can look later at offering it to campus or perhaps the world.

First I perused the list of rsync mirrors on Ubuntu's website. rsync:// looked promising. traceroute shows it uses orion, not our general Internet connection.

So on torres.cscf I made /fsys2/ubuntu and made it writable by a regular user (me).

Then I did

  1. cd /fsys2/ubuntu
  2. rsync -a --progress rsync:// .

The mirror finally finished. I set up a crontab job to update my local mirror every 12 hours.

ISOs can be found at which is also campus restricted.

I mirrored those with

rsync -a --progress rsync:// /fsys2/ubuntu-releases

Let's move this to mirror.cscf.

The disk shelf on mirror is mounted as /home/ftp.

So as root:

  • cd /home/ftp
  • mkdir ubuntu
  • cd ubuntu
  • rsync -a --progress mpatters@torres:/fsys2/ubuntu/ .

Attached is a sources.list to use ubuntu-mirror.cscf and backports to update Warty distributions.

Also attached is a new sources.list for breezy, using ubuntu-mirror.cscf.
