Download problem with pacman

Hi,

i'm new to archlinux and am currently installing arch, unfortunately pacman waits for about 15-20 seconds after each package before he gets the next one so that installing packages is realy time consuming (downloadspeed of the packages is normal around 600kb/s). i do not have any similiar problems with other distributins or downloads and couldn't find anything like this in the wiki,forum or with a searchengine. i realy don't know what could cause this problem and would appreciate any help.

regards,
otowa

Try a different mirror.  Edit /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Re: Download problem with pacman

What filesystem have you got? XFS has a bad history with pacman (it's bad with all the small files pacman uses), though im not sure if it should be performing badly in this particular situation.

When you download manually a package (or any file) with wget, is it slow to connect or what?
