Question Are Mandrake 10.1 OE iso files available in jigdo download format?


Are Mandrake 10.1 OE iso files available in jigdo download format. Having downloaded 10.1 CE earlier, I was hoping to cut down on download of 10.1 OE with jigdo.

I recently (being a newbie) came across jigdo download for debian, and I am impressed with it. I had an old debian sarge dvd, and downloading latest images (2 dvds!), saved a fair amount of download by resuing files from old DVD ( about 40% of files from old dvd were used).

What is jigdo? visit :
Jigsaw Download, or short jigdo, is a tool designed to ease the distribution of very large files over the internet, for example CD or DVD images. Its aim is to make downloading the images as easy for users as a click on a direct download link in a browser, while avoiding all the problems that server administrators have with hosting such large files.

jigdo is Free Software, distributable under the GNU GPL.

Any information on where to find Mandrake 10.1 OE images in jigdo download format would be appreciated.

No I don't believe Mandrake has jigdo style downloads. I'm sure you can download directly from ftp sites or using bittorrent.
