Hi there, I need some help for:

set up an local distfiles and rsync mirror in my LAN because aliens from Pluto will go offline and asked me. All clients in LAN should sync and get distfiles from this machine. I have a complete rsync'ed copy of a gentoo mirror (~250GB) on a seperate machine named "server", IP=192.168.1.100. The server will be updated from time to time with:

Code:

server gentoo-mirror # rsync -ahvn --delete-after --progress ftp.ussg.iu.edu::gentoo-distfiles/ /mnt/c2/gentoo-mirror/

mirrored files location:
Code:

#ls -lah /mnt/c2/gentoo-mirror/
total 3.4M
drwxr-xr-x  6 1030  1030 4.0K Oct 15 08:10 .
drwxr-x--x 18 mega mega  4.0K Oct 11 11:57 ..
drwxr-xr-x  2 1030  1030 3.3M Oct 12 12:00 distfiles
drwxr-xr-x 16 1005 10016 4.0K Oct 12 05:45 experimental
drwxr-xr-x 15 1005 10016 4.0K Nov  9  2012 releases
drwxrwxr-x  3 1005 10016 4.0K Oct 12 02:57 snapshots


I followed this guide to set up an rsync server.
Code:

# cat /etc/rsyncd.conf

pid file = /var/run/rsyncd.pid
max connections = 5
use chroot = yes
uid = nobody
gid = nobody

[gentoo-portage]
path=/mnt/c2/gentoo-mirror
comment=Gentoo Portage
exclude=distfiles/ packages/

On my client I tested the mirror with:
Code:
# rsync 192.168.1.100::
gentoo-portage  Gentoo Portage

# rsync 192.168.1.100::gentoo-portage
drwxr-xr-x        4096 2013/10/15 08:10:09 .
drwxr-xr-x        4096 2013/10/12 05:45:01 experimental
drwxr-xr-x        4096 2012/11/09 14:10:49 releases
drwxrwxr-x        4096 2013/10/12 02:57:10 snapshots


Setting the client to sync with local mirror:

Code:

/etc/portage/make.conf:
...
SYNC="rsync://192.168.1.100/gentoo-portage"
...


Now trying to sync the client gives this error:
Code:
# emerge -av --sync

Do you want to sync your Portage tree with the mirror at

Why does it ask for a "metadata directory"?

Ok I found the error. After reading the guide again my scenario would be a community rsync mirror.

So I did:

Code:

# mkdir /mnt/c2/rsync
# rsync -ahv --delete --timeout=300 --progress rsync://rsync.de.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage /mnt/c2/rsync/


changed rsyncd.conf the line to:
Code:
...
path=/mnt/c2/rsync
...

restarted rsyncd and now I can "emerge --sync" from my local machine.

But now how is the distfiles download managed? Is it the "GENTOO_MIRRORS" var in make.conf? This is not rsync. Are distfiles downloaded by html? If so, do I have to set up a httpd service?
