Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I'll get this bit torrent thing figured out, but right now I need my slack fix!

This is my first time to use bittorrent. It is incredibly slow. I wonder why people use it?

21 kb per second. That's seems dreadful. 2 seeds and only 10 peers, whatever that means (was 2 and 14 when I started a few minutes ago).

I'm using the torrents off of the Slackware server and I'm getting total of 729KB/s right now downloading them all. I was going to seed them with my dedicated box, but I can't find any CLI bittorrent apps that don't have a lot of dependencies. Anyone know of any?

I'm using http://transmission.m0k.org/. I downloaded that because I still have Slackware 9.1, and the bittorrent client that came with Slackware 9.1 is rejected most of the time since it doesn't support the "key" announce parameter. I wanted a program that didn't have many dependencies, and this one works.

I'm DL'ing the DVD. Are you getting 729KB/s on the DVD, or on the CD ISOs?

What might cause my bandwidth to be so low. It's ranging 59KB/s now, but that still is very bad considering that I have a fast broadband connection.

Yes, he did. The folders that go on CD1 exceeded 700MB. All of KDE, KDEI, and T didn't fit on one CD either.

isolinux/initrd.img: Patched installer to allow splitting a package series
over two or more pieces of optical media. If a package directory contains
a file named README_SPLIT.TXT, then it will be continued on the next disc.
An example of such a file can be found in /isolinux.
Thanks very much to Eric Hameleers for the initial patch and testing!

I'm downloading them all because I'm mirroring them, and it was on the 6 CDs and the DVD all at the same time, with the DVD ranging about 315KB/s right now.

Mirror is in my sig, It's about half done.

Downloading using the torrents?

I guess I can cancel the torrent once you have your mirror built and DL straight from you. I wish I understood this better. I get 500 to 800 KB/s typically on downloads from fast sites, so why I'd get under 100 KB/s with the torrent is a mystery.

could be that there's not enough seeders yet...

also, make sure you have your relevant ports open...

Make sure you have the needed ports opened/forwarded, it makes a drastic difference.

The DVD is done, I don't know if it'll download via HTTP/Apache (don't know about the limit deal) and I need to figure out how to make an anonymous ftp work with my stupid WHM/cPanel dedicated box.

Just when I stop looking this thread they just release it

I think I stick with Arch linux for now... Seems to be a very promising distro after a bit of maturation. Seems to combine features from Debian / Gentoo / Slackware

But back to Slack, still waiting to have my 11.0 CD's as I'm planning to make a server machine at home with Slackware on it.
