It works I actually downloaded it for my brother in law he said it works great. I wanted the DVD version so I paid for the club.

ive had it on for about 1/2 an hour - 1 hour, and still 0.0%. I'm going to leave it for a bit, but out of curiosity, does it matter where you are for the speed of the download? I live far away from anything, I'm in Canada, but on the eastern tip on an island.

If your behind a firewall disable it before you go downloading or open the ports that BT is using. I us Azureus instead of Bittorrent others prefer Bitcomet but Azureus works great for me.

I put my security level down to low, and now BT is down to only "44 days remaining". I'd sayv it will actually take a day to download, but thats better than the 100 I had before.

I'd just like to note that my internet connection is 3.0 MBPS/s.

Turn it off brother I wanna hack into your box. Seriously turn it off or open the ports up or it will take forever. Plus give it some time it takes awhile for the speed to get going I was downloading from the club torrent the first day it came out at 300kb/s

I moved onto BitTornado, and it says 350 kb/s, but it is still at 0.0% I have a screenshot below:

After the many problems I had with the torrent, I had a few ideas, and one of them came through from a trustworthy source. Distrowatch.com has the 3 ISO images and the DVD image now available, so just go there and get them. It's not the same as BT (in my opinion), but its at least available now, and they said "Mandriva today released", so they should have it up soon...

When you get it up and running try to get the torrents working they do work once you have everything set up right. When I used it a year ago when 10.1 came out I wasn't that impressed. I think it took about 3 days for the download to complete.Now some of the speeds are amazing compared to ftp downloads at 100kb/s. Most of my issues were with my router. When I finally opened up the correct ports speeds jumped at least 200kb/s

I also tried using BitTorrent to get Mandriva 2005LE but it would not move. It's actually their problem, not ours. I then tried to download other BitTorrent stuff from other websites and they work just fine. I just applied to get Mandriva 2005LE by HTTP access and I recommend others do it, too! I got all 6 CD's in about 2-3 hours. I download around 600 kb/sec with this new Comcast Gold tier. It's worth the $10 more!

So far I have not used much of Mandrive 2005LE, but so far everyything seems to be working normally. No complaints so far.

i found a torrent download in somewhere, but the size of the dvd iso is 4.35GB, so it is the club version that you can only get when you have joined the club?

another DVD iso on distrowathc is 2GB something.....

so the 4.35GB is the one that you have to paid $$$$? (i dont post the 4.35GB torrent here cause i dont think it is right to post here..)

The IOSs are only available for club members. I hope the release them to the general public soon.

Actually, minutes ago they were released publically. And its fast now, I downloaded 10 % in about 5-10 mins. I'd hurry up, it'll probably be clogged up soon.

Most mirrors had the isos at the time I sent my earlier post, but the dvd iso was missing on a few of them.
