RedHat 9 Download


Are the ISOs for RedHat 9 (Shrike) online on any fast mirrors anywhere? It became availabne on RHN this morning and is coming in at about 5KB/sec for me. This is on a fast T-3 connected server as well. Argh...

looks like redhat's servers are busy. Wait a few days and grab them from linuxiso.org

bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/rh9.html is one other way to get them now.

And after trying multiple times and it timing out from RHN I finally hit a fast server I guess... 2 CDs at once at >500KB/sec each. 3rd CD doing 20KB/sec and won't get any faster though

It was very hit or miss.. I started downloads from RHN that did only 10 to 20KB/sec and aborted them.. Refreshed the page, new URLs were presented, tried again and eventually got >500KB/sec for 2 files simultaneously (on a T-3 my end) and was quite pleased with this. I could never get CD 3 to go at any reasonable speed from RHN and ended up getting all 3 again with Bit Torrent and left the client running all night to help out others using BT.
