Sesuai judul, akan susah dijawab. :) Dengan semakin banyaknya penyedia mirror open source di Indonesia, kita jadi kesulitan untuk memilih server mana yang dekat. Nah ada situs yang menyediakan alternatif pilihan ketika anda bingung ‘which mirror should i choose?’

Untuk Debian, silakan mengunjugi ke http://http.debian.net, dan slakan coba demonya di sini http://http.debian.net/demo.html.  Terlalu ribet? oke kita langsung sunting saja soureces.list kita. Di saya sources listnya adalah sebagai berikut:

#deb http://http.debian.net/debian-backports stable main contrib non-free
#deb-src http://http.debian.net/debian-backports/ stable-backports main contrib non-free
deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ stable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://http.debian.net/debian/ stable main contrib non-free
deb http://http.debian.net/debian-security/ stable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://http.debian.net/debian-security/ stable main contrib non-free

Test dengan mengunduh berkas di server.

Ok, berarti sudah berhasil walau sayang masih mengarah ke JAIST (Jepang).
