BT too slow? Slackware 10 still not delivered? FTP Mirror here (add yours as well!)


Until all mirrors get them please add mirrors here:

http://ftp.belnet.be/linux/slackware/slackware-10.0-iso/
http://ncart.scs.ryerson.ca/pub/slackware/slackware-10.0-iso/
http://slackware.at/data/slackware-10.0-iso/

can't imagine bittorrent being too slow right now ;-) people with fast connections reporting over 100 k/s. I got my max of 50 k/s most of the time. If it is really slow and you use a NAT router, read the FAQ. You need to open some ports.

Come on; if you use linux you're gonna read FAQs, you're gonna try and set stuff up.

THE SLACKWARE BIT TORRENTS WERE SOOOOO SLOW FOR ME

Now I've got that off my chest ;) -

All other torrents were fine, even Slackware disk 2 was okay - disk 1 was just SLOW.

But I'm seeding now ;)

make your own iso

Even 100k's was too slow for me.

So I just downloaded the entire FTP Tree from a local mirror (which I know always give me 800k+) and created my own DVD-ISO from current using these (easy) commands:

Code:
mkisofs -o /tmp/slackware.iso \
-R -J -V "Slackware Install" \
-hide-rr-moved \
-v -d -N -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table \
-sort isolinux/iso.sort \
-b isolinux/isolinux.bin \
-c isolinux/isolinux.boot \
-A "Slackware Install CD" .
To save yourself some time (and bandwidth) you will not need the following directories from the ftp tree in order to create a bootable slackware ISO:

/bootdisk
/extra
/pasture
/patches
/rootdisks
/source
/zipslack

After the ISO is created using mkisofs, just burn it using the program of your choice.

If you want to split it over two CD's, the process is very similar and has been well documented on this forum. The instructions are available here:

ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar...nux/README.TXT
