Creating images against remote repositories takes time, download rate from standard MeeGo package repositories can be anything from 100kB/s to 1M/s. This bottleneck can by resolved with caching web proxy which stores packages locally to be reused in IMG.
Following services are required:
Squid is a proxy server and web cache daemon. Squid is used to create local disk cache to store MeeGo RPM Packages.
Install Squid with zypper into OpenSUSE 11.2:
zypper in squid
Create additional configuration /etc/squid/squid.conf:
# 20GB total cache size limit and 300MB item size limit cache_dir ufs /var/cache/squid 20480 16 256 #maximum_object_size 40960 KB maximum_object_size 307200 KB # VERY LOOSE EXPIRATION FOR RPM FILES refresh_pattern -i \.rpm$ 10080 200% 40320 ignore-reload override-lastmod refresh_pattern . 0 20% 4320
Configure MIC2 to recognise new proxy /etc/mic2/mic2.conf:
