Mirrors?


So what mirrors can you download Slackware from? Alot of them or the ones that I can check seem to have 1kb files that you can't download.

Anyone know of a mirror that works?

Try bittorrent, it is pretty fast. I managed to clock up to 200kbps.

Anyway, I am seeding d1, d2 and d3 will bring up d4 soon.

If you insist on ftp ing, check the previous posts on Slackware 9.1 especially the one announcing release of S9.1. There are good recommendations there.

search this forum for an article titled "slackware 9.1 released", read through ..

My advice in short: googling(bittorent), get the window installer version, but not the latest (the one with b1.., something version 3.1,3.2..), double click the file u downloaded, if it doesn't complained anything, then u have bittorent installed..

Restart ur browser, check the slackware.com/torrents/index.html for the images u need .. It is faster than conventional downloading from mirrors .. at least 2 or 3 hours faster, even more ..

Bittorrent web site:
http://bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/download.html

If you are running slack right now. You can download the 3.3 version, untar it and you have can run it straight from that folder.

./btdownloadcurses.py slackware-9.1-install-d1.torrent

you have to get the torrent file from slackware.com or www.suprnova.org

Wut I see with the 3.3 on slack is only:
file: size: destination: progess: status: speed: total: errors:

The advand tab of window GUI of bittorrent shows far more things, including the IP of the peers/seeds, their rate(up/down), total, n the relation between self with them ..

Btw, do u know howto limit the upload rate on bittorrent 3.3-slack ?

Since I got 60% of an 65-image, my download rate is lower than 1kB/s, but upload is ~6kB/s .. That must be caused that most finished peer (potential seeds closed their connection immediately).

On that window-gui it is possible to re-adjust the upload rate during the downloading, but it has a minimum limit about 10% of download-rate .. (fair .. isn't it ?) .. Haven't tried that azureus, next time ..
