[INFO]rate-arch-mirrors superseded

Post by arconaut »

rate-arch-mirrors (fast alternative to reflector) has been given a new name by the developer since v0.4.0 to reflect compatibility with Manjaro, RebornOS and others:

https://github.com/westandskif/rate-mirrors

There was an issue previously whereby if you ran a systemd timer to run the old rate-arch-mirrors script, it would panic saying it cannot be run as root.
In the new version this can be solved by passing the option

--allow-root arch

so the simplest options would now be:

rate-mirrors --allow-root arch | sudo tee /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
