Upgrading ubuntu with some thing which can make more than one connection
I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 and I want to download all (for a specified installation) packages simultaneously and in chunks (as in
jDownloader) for faster downloading speed. I wanted this because my shared internet connection has no internet load balancing mechanism. I'm using my closest mirror
mirror.learn.ac.lk/ubuntu (Sri Lanka).
Ubuntu Software Center,
Synaptic Package Manager,
apt-get and some other package managers to download packages. All of them are using a single connection for all packages which causes slow download (in my connection).
Is it possible to or is there a way to,
- install an application to handle package downloads of any Package Manager (even in
Update Manager) in simultaneous connections
- find a Package Manager specifically designed for slow connections (uses simultaneous connections in downloads)
- if above are impossible
- get a list of required packages' URLs
- manually download (using a Download Accelerator)
- install packages
Please tell if you have a better way
I'm not expert with source code modifying and compiling. So please do not give that kind of answers
I just want to know what is possible and what is the procedure.
