• Pop!_Planet is still very much under development. Data for the wiki is being sourced from the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis, along with a bunch of completely unique content specific to Pop!_OS, and sourcing, converting and updating that content takes time; please be patient.

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Support Pop!_Planet

    Thank you for your time,

Hello,

I'm current residing in the back side of Central Asia, is it possible to update the servers that the system hits for updates to speed up the update and app download process? I've searched around and can't find any indication that this is an option but I figured I'd ask before I gave up.

Sorry, I’m actually interested in both. The Pop servers for system updates and then community repo for software. — I didn’t know if they were separate, when I looked at the list in the store app they seemed to be the same.

I changed my update server locations using this app: sudo apt install software-properties-gtk

Have seen a massive improved in running updates and downloading new software.
