I can't get Debian!


I'm having trouble downloading debian. Every time I successfully download a dvd iso via ftp from the University of Oregon the md5 doesn't match. I also tried downloading a cd version but same result. Does somebody know of a good mirror to download debian DVD iso's? It takes 12 hours to download one dvd iso just to have it not be correct. This is wasting my time in a serious way. I've actually thought about just buying the DVDs. I'm going to hit somebody in the face!

Were you using Jigdo for your downloads? It's the recommended 'debian way':

If that is what you were doing already, and its not working, then buying the disks as you suggest is a pretty good option.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
