Slackware 14.1 Torrents! Please seed to relieve slackware.com and mirrors.


Hi,

Let's not forget about torrents;
Please continue to seed so we can relieve the loads at Slackware.com & mirrors. Please share to save some hair! Just like time, you can never get it back.

Is any mirror available?

My KTorrent reads: 'Could not connect to host slackware.com: Socket operation timed out.'

Or is that just me?

Maybe overwhelmed by people wanting to download the new release. As always, nothing to worry about, use one of the alternate mirrors or the torrents. At least the 32 bit DVD is already on LinuxTracker: http://linuxtracker.org/
Also already seeding, although my connection is not that fast.

I copied the torrent files here http://butler.cc.tut.fi/~kaukasoi/torrents/.

(And the iso files are here ftp://elektroni.phys.tut.fi/slackware-14.0-iso/ and here ftp://elektroni.phys.tut.fi/slackware64-14.0-iso/).

I am seeding the 64-bit DVD, and I'll do so tomorrow as well.

http://linuxtracker.org/ works decent so far.

'slackware 14 0 install dvd iso' is on the top and got 20 seeders as we speak.

Thank you for that.

slackware.com is dead from here. The torrent download is steady at over 300KiB/s and I can see over 500 seeders. Thanks to all the seeders as well.

Hi,

Mirror that does have the ISO for 14.0;
Quote:
The source code DVD (for both 32-bit and 64-bit) may be found in the
../slackware-14.0-iso/ directory: http://slackware.mirrors.tds.net/pub...ware-14.0-iso/

It wasn't until I had almost finished this download before I realized it was the 32-bit version. Oh well, I'll be helping seed it, even if I don't need it right now.

Awesome, this was exactly what I needed. Thank you! I'm getting 25 mbps right now. Should be done within 6 minutes and then will be seeding for the foreseeable future.

By the way, does anyone have MD5 hashes of the official ISOs? I'm wanting to ensure that the 32-bit image from linuxtracker.org was "official."

[edit] Ahh, disregard. I just downloaded the MD5 file from off of the "official" torrent copied to Petri's server and it matched the linuxtracker.org ISO image perfectly.
