As far as I know, the answer is no. However, in relation to a book I wrote on Ubuntu Linux I used Reconstructor to create a DVD which has all of Ubuntu Studio integrated (along with Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu and Edubuntu). It is a fully functional live DVD and can be downloaded via Linuxtracker

thank you very much! It seems to be very interesting. I've dowloaded it but I do not know how to deal with a bittorrent file. What am I supposed to do with UbuntuW2L_RC_Renaissance.iso.torrent ?

thanks.

That shouldn't be a problem. If you are running Windows you could download utorrent.exe from http://www.utorrent.com/. This is a small program that doesn't require installation.

You double-click to open utorrent, then go to File -> Add torrent... Now you navigate to the .torrent file and you will be asked where to download the file. From here it is easy, the download will commence. The torrent file helps you to download the complete iso.

Sharing via bittorrent means that you will upload the parts that have been downloaded by you. The more people that share, the bigger the swarm, the faster the download proces.

If you have trouble getting traffic, you might want to take a look at http://portforward.com/.

If this doesn't work for whatever reason, just yell and I could set up an alternative download location for you.

Hi! Not the original poster, but noticed that the LinuxTracker link doesn't work... Is there an alternative site?

Weird, the link is working now. Anyway, I noticed all seeders were gone on this one, so I resumed seeding myself. It should be working now. But please, also check your portforwarding. I can see that the two current downloaders have not setup portforwarding correctly and that negatively influences the traffic speed.

Hi again! Thanks for that, very much appreciate it.

I tried the port forwarding website, but I admit I hardly understood it at all. Is it a program that I must download and pay for, or are the settings just listed which I have to figure out? I don't *think* my router has bad settings, since I can normally download things at 30-70MB/s from the browser (though I admit, the bittorrent isn't going very well....

//...went out to run errands...

....ok, I've looked it over, switched to utorrent [as one of the tracker programs on the list], set up the static IP add on my router. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have made a difference in the downloahttp://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=2868133
LinuxQuestions.org - Reply to Topicding speed. As I'm the only peer that I see, I'm definitely one of the ones you say needs to fix it, but I'm not quite sure what's wrong...

- could it be because the "Enable NAT-PMP port mapping" is checked? [was not mentioned in the walk-through, not in the version of the screenshot shown]

- could it be because of my firewall somewhere? [I disabled the firewall on the router as shown on the screenshot, but no difference, so I re-enabled it]

My best guess is probably the DNS server, maybe I'll ask my ISP tomorrow.

I've figured out an alternative way to try the program I wanted to check out in the DVD, so I don't really need it anymore. I can kill the torrent, or I could finish it out so I can help seed next time if needed. At current rate, though, ETA's 4 days, I don't know if you want to do that. I'm continuing in case you do (more I hang on, sooner done, but if not, easy to kill).

Again, many thanks!

Question: What Linux distribution are you using at the moment?
There are various programs that can handle torrent files, like KTorrent or Azureus.
