I DO understand that. I went doing a series of push-ups when finally I saw "11.0" in the main page of slackware site (and that IS true, believe it or not)...

This is my first post in this site! I've been coming here a lot, but decided that I would susbscribe the day slack11 was out, as a kind of celebration for this moment! (I'm looking forward to bomb all of you with my n00bish questions about Linux and Slack in the near future! --> read: as soon as I grab the DVD image!!!!!!)

Today I've noticed that the frenzy has officially begun as it seems the bandwidth is being eaten up everywhere... I'm very glad that I began downloading the -current tree and rsynced last night. I have ISOs waiting for me and I will have Slackware 11 running before the baseball game tonight. Now if the Yankees lose tonight then today will truly be one for the ages.

I recommend that anyone who has the ability to do so should start rsyncing the -current tree close to a release so they don't have to suffer with nasty bandwidth issues and the problems that the torrents have so soon after the release.

For me, I used Alien Bob's script and modified accordingly to get two quick ISOs that I'll use to get myself up and running. Once I'm up and running I'll probably make official ones from my tree or maybe even do some torrents to help with seeds so I have official ISOs for my collection. Since my computers don't have any problems booting from CD-RWs I didn't have to waste those CD-Rs on "quick-and-dirty" tactics and I can use them for the official ones.

Just my $0.02

Alien Bob... Am I just seeing things or did a few more of your packages make it to the official release this time around?

Well, I'm glad for you. I'm feeling good about having subscribed when I see these posts about download times.

Looks like a great time to start slacking.

I too have had a Slackware subscription for a few years now and look forward to getting my official disks, but I am really glad I've been using Eric's fantastic script to rsync with current. There is a shiny, homemade DVD ISO waiting for me at home right now thanks to that script.

Thanks, Eric!

Last post from 10.2. Just did my last backup and getting ready to install 11.0. Just wanted to say 'THANKS PAT'. Thanks for waiting and getting it just right. Now, PLEASE take at least 2 weeks off, while not touching a computer, and just enjoy life with the family. The road to the next release can wait awhile.

Let's just say there is some pixie magic on CD 5 for those who care to look.

Cheers, Eric

Torrent Error

I started downloading 11.0 last night as soon as I found out it was repleased, using the Transmission torrent client, and it was doing it's thing, although slow, and this morning, I check, and found it has stopped at 24% complete, and my high speed cable was down. After getting my cable back up, and restarting the torrent, I am now occationally getting this error where it usually says how many seeds there are, and how many hosts I am connected to:

Error: You client's "key" parameter and the key we have for you in our database do not match.

What the heck is going on here?? Has anybody else seen this?? Could someone is spoofing the torrent tracker? I wouldn't think so, but ya never know...

Anyways, it's still downloading, and increasing in speed, so thanks to everyone for keeping your torrents open after your downloads are complete! I will do the same here!

Thanks again Pat! ;-)

I was actually manually recompiling 2.6.18 yesterday, when I checked distrowatch and saw the announcement. Downloaded the isos at work (still there :/ ) and am pumped to upgrade from 10.2 tonight. I hope my pre-ordered copy arrives soon too, official pressed CDs always seem nicer.

Hey Eric, for those of us who've ordered the DVD, where should we look if we want some of your pixie magic?

I got to say this is the best Slackware release yet. Atleast since 9.0.
