sarge jigdo issues


I'm having trouble using jigdo to download the DVD or CD images. I've followed the instructions on debian's site.

I'm using the jigdo-lite script on a working debian machine, and a working fedora core 2 machine. I've tried using the cd and dvd sarge-i386-1.jigdo files, and from different mirrors. Each time I use the script, it downloads the first ten files and makes the temporary image files, but prints these errors while creating the temporary images:

Code:
FINISHED --12:03:14--
Downloaded: 2,787,078 bytes in 10 files
Found 10 of the 1209 files required by the template
Error: `sarge-i386-1.iso.tmpdir/ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/glib1.2/libglib1.2_1.2.10-9_i386.deb' does not match checksum in template data

After printing these errors, the script continues on its merry way downloading new files, but I always stop it with I CTRL-C. Then I try again with different mirrors, jigdo files, etc. Every time I get these errors, and I know I shouldn't "just continue" because my final disc will be screwed up. I've run memtest86+ and fsck on all my drives, and both of my computers pass all the tests. I've never had any read errors, etc, so I think it's the actual jigdo-lite process that's screwed up. Can anybody confirm that it does/doesn't work for them (recently)? If it does work for you, why doesn't it work over here?

forget about the jigdo, it's been reported as broken, download the net installer.

choose i386

I used the most recent version of jigdo-lite a couple of weeks ago on Windows in order to burn the Sarge CD 1. It worked fine, but obviously that doesn't mean much for your system.

Net install will probably be a good option, or directly downloading the first CD image directly if you can't get jigdo to work.

Ah! Jigdo is broken, or jigdo-lite is broken? Or both? I wanted the snapshots of the repositories so that installing a new system doesn't take an hour (over the net). If jigdo-lite is broken, where can I get snapshots of the testing distribution? How do cd image vendors make their snapshot discs?

Hallo,
I have the same big problem with jigdo. I think the template file is broken. I have to install a new system with sarge!

6.6. My jigdo download won't complete because the .jigdo file is broken. When I download a new, fixed .jigdo file, do I need to download all the data over again?
http://atterer.net/jigdo/debian-jigd...94.html#AEN354

"You may find that the .jigdo file you downloaded is broken. It's very uncommon, but it does happen from time to time with moving targets like Debian testing or unstable. If you find that your .jigdo file is broken, you'll need to download a new .jigdo file (when a fixed one becomes available), but you won't need to download all the ISO data again."

I would say either try it and see if it works, or if it is currently broken use the netinstall as macondo suggests.
