fedora dnf slow and fastestmirror DNF is a solid advance over Yum. But it’s default behavior may not be what you’re used to. The reason is dnf slow

 

Case in point is that the old yum plugin fastestmirror is now built in to dnf! However, it’s default setting is OFF. So, the first thing I do when I install Fedora is turn it on so dnf slow is no more!

First, open your dnf.conf file.

sudo gedit /etc/dnf/dnf.conf

(gedit comes standard on Fedora or install nano.)

Now add this line to the bottom of the file:

fastestmirror=true

Click save, close gedit, and you’re done! I find that it makes a massive difference in speed.
