For people who don't know/understand bittorrent:

- install the bittorrent client from the extra dir (needs python)
- download the torrents (about 50 KB each)
- start the client in a terminal/console using :
Code:
 
btdownloadcurses.py --max_upload_rate <number> slackware-10.0-install-d1.torrent
<number> should be max 80% of your upload speed in KiloBytes.
Repeat for the other iso's

I have been using swaret all the time to update my system. So I pretty much already have Slack 10.0 and I shouldn't bother upgrading right?

I notice there are 4 ISOs. I take it I just need the first 2 ISOs to do an install? The other two are optional?

If you use slackware current and updated anytime recently(within the past few days when you saw updates for mozilla 1.7 and some others) youare now using slackware 10.

Also you might want to consider using swaret to update. It will be a much smaller download(only downloading what you need). All you need to do is edit your /etc/swaret.conf and changed version=9.1 to version=10.0 and put one of those 10.0 mirrors there.

Yes, you are correct. The 3rd and 4th are only needed if you want the source.

Rather than using swaret, you might consider keeping up to date by rsyncing your own mirror and then upgradepkg ing from that.

Couldn't you just leave the "version=" section to "version=current", if you are running -current?

where are the 10.0 mirrors... they appear to be the same so it would seem changing version=current to version=10.0 would work but update fails... I'm new to this so... maybe I'll just stick with current...

And if you want to double check, find a favorite mirror and check out the new upgrade.txt. Pat does a great job of explaining things and he tells you what you can safely remove. I found a few things to get rid of.

A Proud Slacker!
