4.1 Packages - single tarball


I have put my tarball (.bz2) of the 4.1 packages on P2P (Gnutella and OpenFT) for anyone who needs to download it. Just do a search for:

lfs-packages-4.1

and you should see it. If you don't see it, please respond and I'll try to figure out why.

The reason I'm posting to let everyone know, is that a LOT of the packages are no longer available from Freshmeat...

No, it's more like 200Mb

I just finished the build of the packages, and have realized that it is missing procinfo, SO, it looks like I need to send it back through bzip2 with another file (oh, well !). It won't be much more than that, procinfo is tiny...

damn, i thought it was around 100mb....
what i would like to see its a CVS version of the wget-links-file like the one in the 4.1 book, so i wouldnt have to be looking for every package...

well keep that up! i was thinking in uploading it to my web but, thats way too much....

CORRECTION

My bad. Size is 101 Mb. (I had the tar of all of the packages in the same directory when I bzip'd, so it doubled the size, sorry!).

BTW, can anybody see it on the P2P?? I don't really know if I have giFT set-up right... And it should be on Gnutella, FastTrack, and OpenFT.

Unhappy Can't find it

Using gtk-gnutella. Did a search for "lfs-packages-4.1". Search results were nil.

OK, I just changed a forwarding setting on my firewall. See if you can see it now.
