issue: IMPORTANT: APT repo temporary switched off

TL;DR: APT repo switched off due to excessive load / traffic

Recently we realized that APT repo generates almost 95% of I/O on and more than 40% of network bandwidth alone. During last 2
weeks the main services on (svn, git, bugzilla) had serious
problems with overall connectivity.

We decided to temporary switch APT repo off to see if this would help.
Stay tuned for updates.

Needless to say that I'm one of those badly hurt by unavailability.

I simply cannot compile/run Scala Native since it depends on clang-3.8 :frowning:

Have you guys considered mirroring the APT repository?
Do you guys need a hand to investigate how your APT repository could be mirrored by, say... ?

Thanks a lot,

Since the APT repository is down... everything under that location is unavailable, including the instructions on how I could build/install LLVM/clang from sources. Could you guys advise, please?

You can quickly start here...

at least until we replace the service.


Hello Renato,

Thanks a lot for your help.

I’ve created a gist on this matter …

… which builds the latest and greatest snapshot from trunk.

But I’d like to build RELEASE_380/final.
I’ve tried to simply sed s:trunk:tags/RELEASE_380/final:g but it seems it’s not that easy.

If possible, could you please advise how this could be done?

Thanks a lot,

Hello Renato,

I was able to download RELEASE_380/final.
I don’t know exactly what I did wrong previously.

Thanks a lot for your help! Cheers :slight_smile:
