Gentoo source mirrors

Gentoo downloads can be retrieved from many mirrors around the globe. Selecting a mirror that is geographically near you may help speed up downloads.

Using source mirrors
The mirrors listed on this page contain installation files such as LiveCDs, Gentoo ebuild repository snapshots as well as distfiles (the actual program code for our packages).
To use a source mirror for Portage downloads, add a URL from the list below to the GENTOO_MIRRORS variable in make.conf. More information is available in our wiki.
rsync mirrors
We also have a second type of mirrors that you use for updating your Portage tree (configured via repos.conf). They are available on a separate page.

We would like to thank the many organizations and individuals that are providing mirroring services to the Gentoo project. If you would like to contribute a mirror, please consult the relevant documentation.
