Slackware 13.37 torrents-- Please continue to seed.
 
Hi,

You can give back by using torrent & seeding for a while. Don't forget;

Please consider supporting the Slackware project by picking up a copy of the Slackware 13.37 release from the Slackware Store:

Everyone needs to use torrent for now. Please seed! Remember for x86_32 install you will need ISO disc1, ISO disc 2 & ISO disc 3. If you need KDEi or '/extra then get ISO disc 4.

And as always for people who have an rsynced Slackware tree they can use sligdo in order to create ISOs if they want to help seeding.

Many thanks to Slackers everywhere for seeding the torrents! I am burning my install media now and will be starting install festival 2011 tonight. :)
I will continue to seed the torrents for 32 bit 13.37.

sycamorex 04-28-2011 09:35 AM

I'm seeding x86_64. I am going to do it for another week or so.

hitest 04-28-2011 09:42 AM

As a caveat to onebuck's excellent post if you want the goodies that are in /extra you will need to download CD #4. :)

Also, should slackware.com suffer its occasional difficulties, the following page has the same set of links, but to the torrent files hosted on the tracker itself:

Slackware 13.37 Released

Added both the 32bit & 64bit to my seedbox so everyone can get good speeds. Hope this helps :)

wargus 04-28-2011 02:58 PM

Seeding now all the images too. Had to learn rtorrent first, after I came home from work :D

blue_k 04-28-2011 03:34 PM

I am seeding Slackware 64 install DVD. Everyone, please continue to seed.

Dinithion 04-28-2011 04:29 PM

I'm seeding! I will again recommend other people to do so as the torrent download was incredibly slow. I think I averaged at 0.4Mbit/s during my 7 ours before I gave up on the torrent.
So if you downloaded the iso from a mirror, download the torrent file, check that your md5sum is correct for your iso and start seeding! :)

I have local copies of Slackware64 and Slackware 13.37 trees but I am not familiar with sligdo. i would like to create DVD/CD images and contribute to the torrents. I have my own local iso's but these are custom for me and so no good for the torrents. I would like to create compatible images and help with these torrents - how do I create suitable images and add to the available seeds? Obviously the images added to these torrents must be the same so I need to create fresh ones.

Unfortunately my home router had developed an intermittent fault and drops internet access randomly, (about every eight hours so far), - will this mess up any torrents I am seeding for folks downloading?

You can create the ISOs if you have complete Slackware source trees.
Get sligdo and the .jigdo and .template files for 64bit and 32bit. Then run the sligdo script to create the ISOs you want in the same dir as the above files. Mind that this procedure is quite intensive and even on a modern machine should take a while..

EDIT: forgot about jigdo-file. Here's alphageek's directions:

Directions:

ensure sligdo & jigdo-file are somewhere in your $PATH & are executable.
place the .jigdo & .template files in a handy directory that's on a partition with enough space available
cd to this directory
run "sligdo /path/to/toplevel/slackware/"
wait a few minutes while the ISOs are created in $PWD/slackware-13.1-iso/ or $PWD/slackware64-13.1-iso/
if you're operating a Slackware mirror (or just paranoid), do an rsync touchup run against another mirror to grab the missing .asc, .md5 & .txt files.
enjoy

Seeding both 32 and 64bit for the next couple weeks until I move.

Is anybody else having troubles with sligdo ?
Code:

9f4fb5daf09211466c86a00952d9a38c=Slackware64:slackware64-13.37/source/l/lzo/.lzo.info
The .jigdo file has this entry and sligdo tells me that it can't find it. It writes all other files to the iso fine, so i thought to try the resulting iso in azureus and it will only download the incorrect chunk but the iso sligdo produces is larger than the one in the torrent.

Edit: Apparently, the .lzo.info file does exist on mirrors (forgotten file maybe ?), but rsync never copied it to my tree. I tried ftp on many mirrors to see if anyone has it but firefox didn't show it either so i supposed it didn't exist. At some point, i thought "let me try ftp from a terminal" and indeed there it was. I am a happy seeder now :)

Thanks for that. After battling with jigdo, sligdo and then ktorrent and it's odd settings I finally am seeding the Slackware64-13.37-iso and it looks like it's working too! Shame my ISP limits my upload to a ridiculous rate (0.5 MB) as my download rate is not too shoddy at 10MB and that would undoubtedly help matters. Anyway I'll leave it going for a few weeks. Just hope my dodgy router holds up.
