I have been seeding it since the release day or so, as I did for the last couple/few versions, and after re-upgrading to 14.1 on my desktop (next, after finally solving problems I had on it and my laptop, surely of my own fault, because I finally got 14.1 working fine on my laptop) I aim to leave it seeded continuously until I have downloaded the next version's torrent.

I downloaded the torrent http://www.slackware.com/torrents/sl...ce-dvd.torrent, then ran:

$ ctorrent slackware-14.1-source-dvd.torrent

The iso downloaded fine but that was the end of it, I thought it would then start seeding but instead I got the message:

TRACKER FAILURE REASON: Your client's "key" paramater and the key we have for you in our database do not match.

and

TRACKER FAILURE REASON: requested download is not authorized for use with this tracker

So I quit and then re-ran the command but it ended up the same. I've never really used torrents before and googling didn't throw much up.

It's the same with rtorrent:

'Requested download is not authorised for use with this tracker'

Googling implies to me that only certain clients are authorised to track some torrents.

No problem here with Transmission (running headless on a VPS), so maybe try that.

That's done the trick, thanks. And there's a cli too :-)

Seeding now.

Just realized that I hit the 1TB mark this night for all my Slackware seeds, seeding the DVDs from 14.0 and 14.1. The fun fact is that this seed box only runs since 84 days ago.
Now let anyone tell you that Slackware is dead.

No, I'm back now to not seeding. Transmission just ceased uploading for some reason, got to about 61gb then stopped. The daemon was running, the torrent was running, just nothing going up. Tried re-installing but no joy.

Switched back to rtorrent and went back to the 'not authorised' message. Switched to ctorrent (the newer one from eric), same message.

Definitely looking for cli only as running twm.

You can try to run Deluge as server, it has a headless mode also.
Just checked, my Transmission daemon is still seeding, now at 625GB for 14.1.

Is that combined with the 32 and 64 bit versions? Combined I'm at roughly 625GB as well, but the uploads seem to be trickling... remember 14.0 having a lot more uploads.

I'll give it a try if I can't get transmission working again, thanks.

Yes, it is combined, 32 bit, 64 bit and the sources DVD. I am not seeding the CDs. I have not seeded 14.0 from the beginning, but when I look at the time-scales for my seeds it seems to me that there is not much difference between 14.0 and 14.1.
