Auto Choosing Mirrors in Debian Sid KDE 3.5.x

Status

I run Debian Sid with KDE 3.5.x. I want a way to automatically choose a mirror with the best speed, via a GUI as simple as Ubuntu's feature in synaptic, which lists all the mirrors.

How do I do it ?

I heard someone mentioning that you could use the rankmirror script by making slight modifications to it. However I haven't done it or I don;t know how valid this suggestion is so you might want to check that.

^^yeah Parka123 :D

but AFAIR there is automatic mirror selecting in Debian too, synaptic has the option
 
For obvious reasons, my experiments with Debian are proving rather bad. Debian Sid KDE is one really really great OS to have if I need just a single OS with a one thing fits all tag, but I feel it would be much much better to have a dual boot of Ubuntu Gnome and Arch KDEmod. Hopefully, when I make my next HDD upgrade, I would be triple or quad or penta booting my PC :D

and why not use netselect ? .there wont be any big diff in speed.currently ,I have german mirror which is up2date. :)

fug those nazis. they give speed that looks high in the begening, but it keeps fluctuating and finally gets reduced to 8kbps. :mad:

big difference in speed what ? are you talking about arch ? I want to know KDEmod Arch vs Gnome Debian. :confused:
