Hi,

I went back reread the thread. Sorry about the error. If you are getting a ftp error then I would start looking locally then. If your try some of the mirrors and still get a error then you 'do' have a local problem.

Read a lot of posts today, sorry. Solve it yourself!

No offense was intended, and I apologize for the tone I took, but it seemed that you were just glossing over what I said. I haven't had a problem yet other than a bad checksum, which was what I was stating. And actually your tips have helped and I am downloading it from the FTP sites as we speak, considering the ISO I downloaded was ~2 Gigs as opposed to 3.6 Gigs as it seems it should be.

Hi,

No offense taken. I would suggest that in the future you create your own thread for a problem instead of hi-jacking. The problem I had was with the thought that I was speaking to the OP. And for some reason I thought BT was in use. Bittorrent can be a problem at times, especially if a local problem with the ISP occurs (i.e. load limits, gating and stepping)

I like to host BT for initial releases but then take them down.

I like to get my iso via FTP but sometimes some have to be via http:. I like the wget single fetch that way you can see the errors. With a wild card you don't always see the errors.

THE <2GB download sounds like the site went offline or interrupted the download.

Hi-jacking? How did I hi-jack this thred? The topic was about bad ISO's,and I made a comment about the one I downloaded. Let's just leave well enough alone since it appears you are having difficulty in understanding my comments.

Hi,

You generally give feedback to the OP. The high-jacking of a thread is just that. You introduce your problem interrupting the drift of the thread.

Plus by giving yourself a new post, more exposure to YOUR problem. Without breaking the thought or meaning with the original.

I'm not having a problem understanding your comments. Just a suggestion.
You take it or leave it! I really don't care.

Must you cluster with a crowd?

Sir, all due respect, but I can't follow your train of logic at all. The topic was bad ISO's, the OP was stating that he had problems with ISO's of Slackware 12 that he had downloaded, and specifically mentioned the differing checksums. I then proceded to state that I had seen the same thing happen, thus verifying that there is indeed an issue with other people as well. I fail to see how I hi-jacked the thread, especially since the LQ staff would like to keep as many related topics in as few threads as possible, as would any forum. Again, with all due respect, you are the one that seems to be interrupting the drift of the thread by not reading thoroughly the posts presented, and offering suggestions based upon faulty assumptions. Also, your last sentence doesn't make much sense to me. I have to ask if english is a second language or whether you are using a translation program which perhaps is causing the confusion we seem to be experiencing?

YO!!

Not yet, still wavering between a bittorrent and an ftp. From the stories I've read, it seems I'm not the only one having problems, and I don't relish the idea of waiting 3-4 days to get a bad copy.

Might as well either buy it or get it from one of the Linux magazines.

Thanks to all of you for your great suggestions!

Hey, using wget with FTP I was able to download the DVD ISO. Burned it and installed it with no problems at all yet. Faster Slackware install yet. So go with FTP.

Hi,

Downloaded the DVD iso with wget from ftp, and it's 100% perfect.

Thanks again!
