Default MSTTCOREFONTS software package is referencing wrong sourceforge server

Hi all,

I found a problem while installing MSTTCOREFONTS package on Ubuntu 8.04 which is maintained by
Ubuntu MOTU Developers <ubuntu-motu@lists.ubuntu.com>

Problem: files are downloaded from belnet.dl.sourceforge.net which is not an official mirror (see attached mail from sourceforge below)

Problem: MSTTCOREFONTS takes multiple attempts until installed successfully.

Can you please figure out how to exclude the belnet.dl.sourceforge.net server?
Thank you, very much. I hope the mail from sourceforge support helps.

Kind regards,

Summary: Mirror issue: belnet.dl.sourceforge

Initial Comment:

there must be something wrong with replication or the belnet.dl.sourceforge.net server. Just try these two commands:

1. First command
wget http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts//comic32.exe

... simply downloads the file. - Perfect.

2. Second command
wget http://belnet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/comic32.exe

It reports multiple times:
--21:23:49-- http://belnet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/comic32.exe
(try: 6) => `comic32.exe.1'
Connecting to belnet.dl.sourceforge.net||:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... Read error (Connection reset by peer) in headers.

The problem with the connection reset the belnet.dl.sourceforge.net does is that the same server is tried over and over again - although there are others offering the file at once.

Thank you for working on this issue. :-)

Kind regards,

the belnet server is no longer an official sourceforge.net download
mirror, so you would be well advised to avoid referencing it. For best
effect use a download.sourceforge.net redirector link to get redirected to
a live mirror.

Hi Thorsten,

I tried this and yes, the first one worked fine. The wget from belnet did
not work and hacked this up:

$ wget
--2008-12-10 15:41:46--
Resolving belnet.dl.sourceforge.net...
Connecting to belnet.dl.sourceforge.net||:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 504 Gateway Time-out
2008-12-10 15:44:45 ERROR 504: Gateway Time-out.

I'll escalate this to the Service Operations group for investigation.
Thank you for pointing this out!

If you need anything else, please post a response to this request.
