Enabling your favorite mirror

The default pacman configuration for current looks like this:

[current]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/current

If you want to use the HostEurope mirror as your default mirror, just add it before the Include line:

[current]
Server = ftp://ftp.hosteurope.de/mirror/ftp.archlinux.org/current/os/i686
Include = /etc/pacman.d/current

Pacman will now try to connect to this mirror first. You can do the same for testing, extra, community and unstable.

Use the same mirror for all repositories. Otherwise packages may get installed that are incompatible to each other (like kernel26 from current and another (older) kernel module from extra).

Mirror List

This is a list of all known ArchLinux mirrors, that's more up to date than the official download page or the files in /etc/pacman.d/. If you know a not listed mirror, please add it. Mirrors which are not updated or unavailable for a long time can be deleted.

Many sites also provide http service, but keep in mind that pacman relies on ftp to determine if a repository got updated. With http it fetches the repository database each time you run pacman -Sy, even if it didn't change since the last run.
