Slackware binary repository I can upload large packages to?


Does anyone know of a binary repository I can upload some fairly large Slackware packages (up to 52MB or at least 25MB). I usually only look to linuxpackages.net, but they only host a package if it is 5MB or under.

Preferably it would be a site that isn't really obscure.

thanks.

you could try slackware-current.net .. you wil have to talk to the owner at the forum there ..

OR upload to rapidshare etc. , and store a link at slackware -links , slackwiki etc.

OR make a slackbuild script , and upload to slackbuilds.org

slackware-current.net may be promising. I'll have to figure out who to talk to there. It appears to be a really new site.

My binaries are based off slackBuilds that I submitted to slackbuilds.org. I normally don't submit binaries that I make build scripts for but it seems some of them are being requested.

If nothing else I could upload to rapidshare (etc), but I would much prefer to send them to sites that Linux (particularly Slackware) users would normally go to.

If you manage to contact him, ask him if he intends to stop infringing on the Slackware trademark.

When I do talk to the owner there I will ask him/her. Maybe that person doesn't realize what they are doing. If they just don't care then I won't support that site by adding packages to it.

You might disagree, but I don't know how domain name itself can be infringing trademark. He doesn't sell Slackware or doesn't get any money from the site either, just hosting packages, so it can't be infringement.

There is slackware mirror at Lithuania called slackware.lt However, there is no site content there. Only a mirror. Is it also infringement?

In addition, slackware.pl, slackware.hu, slackware-brasil.com.br

So I guess the question is "what does Pat have to say on this"? It is his trademark.

Are they any other sites that would be good to do fairly large uploads (besides your typically mass file sharing sites)?

I'm confused. Is that perhaps an initial (the size) requirement?

I ask because the next (at url) pkg is 130 megabytes or greater and the wine pkg is near 11 megabytes.

From Linuxpackes.net Submitting a package page ...

Connection requirements:
Well we had to place this requirement for several reasons. Its just not a matter of bandwidth but also concerns about security and stability. Cable modems have show to be very slow on the upload and the stability is in question. Since most are run in someones home this compounds the issue of it being on all the time. The same holds true for most DSL machines. Also having these services on your home machine in most cases will violate your AUP (acceptable use policy). In the past when we accepted these packages we would be flooded with email's when the machine was down or slow. So it was decided to just not allow this. Most people will not dedicate a machine just for serving package and for stability this is what is needed. We will however host your package for you if it is under five megs, we will still need a place to download it for checking though. After we accept the package the download url will be changed to our servers.

Edit: I'm guessing that those packages you mentioned are not actually hosted at linuxpackes.net or perhaps they made a special case for them.
