I am still seeding Slackware 14 64 bit since the day that it was released.
I have seeded over 25GB of Slack as of this writing!

Just doing my share for the community!
I have a few raspberry-pi! One of them is doing a few things, one of them is seeding this torrents with rtorrent.
It's using SlackwareARM of course!
Just giving a little of my bandwidth to support this idea!
The files are in a 16 GB USB PEN connected to raspberry-pi!

Thank you all for working on this amazing project named Slackware!

I am still seeding Slackware 14 64 bit. I have seeded almost 30GB so far.
The ratio of seeders to downloaders must still be pretty good, since there does not seem to be much demand on my uploading. Many times it just sits idle.
Of course, there are probably fewer people downloading Slack 14 now than when it was first released.
Either way, I will happily keep seeding Slack!

I can't work out how to make rtorrent seed after the download is finished?

@273: just leave it there? Press "5" in the rtorrent session to see your completed torrents, and "8" to see currently seeding torrents.

I'll seed this one till next stable.

The ratio for slackware64-14.0-iso is obviously a display bug in transmission
Looks like people are downloading the 64bit version more than the 32bit one...

I have similar results... the 32-bit version has a ratio of 323 while the 64-bit version has 173. Reason my 64-bit version is lower is because the drive crashed and it re-downloaded for some reason even though it verified completely. Regardless, before the crash the 64-bit version was always slightly higher so if you do the calculations, 173 turns out to be much higher than the 32-bit version.

Hi,

It really should not be too much longer before 14.1. Wishful thinking!

Hi,

Just a reminder since Slackware 14.1 rc2 is now available. New release is just around the corner so torrent seeding will again be necessary to take the load off the mirrors & home.

So please seed the new Slackware 14.1 when it is release.

726.8GB and 1.38TB for 64-bit and 32-bit respectively... will see if I can beat that once 14.1 comes out.
