Hi,

Let's not forget about torrents;
Please continue to seed so we can relieve the loads at Slackware.com & mirrors. Please share to save some hair! Just like time, you can never get it back. :)

Is www.slackware.com down?

cfdisk 09-29-2012 08:42 AM

Is any mirror available?

My KTorrent reads: 'Could not connect to host slackware.com: Socket operation timed out.'

Or is that just me?

TobiSGD 09-29-2012 08:46 AM

Maybe overwhelmed by people wanting to download the new release. As always, nothing to worry about, use one of the alternate mirrors or the torrents. At least the 32 bit DVD is already on LinuxTracker: http://linuxtracker.org/
Also already seeding, although my connection is not that fast.

Ilgar 09-29-2012 08:54 AM

I was able to find the 32-bit torrents at isohunt.com

I copied the torrent files here http://butler.cc.tut.fi/~kaukasoi/torrents/.

(And the iso files are here ftp://elektroni.phys.tut.fi/slackware-14.0-iso/ and here ftp://elektroni.phys.tut.fi/slackware64-14.0-iso/).

H_TeXMeX_H 09-29-2012 11:56 AM

I am seeding the 64-bit DVD, and I'll do so tomorrow as well.

'slackware 14 0 install dvd iso' is on the top and got 20 seeders as we speak.

Thank you for that.

slackware.com is dead from here. The torrent download is steady at over 300KiB/s and I can see over 500 seeders. Thanks to all the seeders as well.

Hi,

Mirror that does have the ISO for 14.0;

It wasn't until I had almost finished this download before I realized it was the 32-bit version. Oh well, I'll be helping seed it, even if I don't need it right now.

Awesome, this was exactly what I needed. Thank you! I'm getting 25 mbps right now. Should be done within 6 minutes and then will be seeding for the foreseeable future.

Col-Panic 09-29-2012 01:41 PM

By the way, does anyone have MD5 hashes of the official ISOs? I'm wanting to ensure that the 32-bit image from linuxtracker.org was "official."

[edit] Ahh, disregard. I just downloaded the MD5 file from off of the "official" torrent copied to Petri's server and it matched the linuxtracker.org ISO image perfectly.

And on release day they said: "Thou shalt seed thee torrents", and seed the torrents I have.

saulgoode 09-30-2012 08:27 AM

On the Slackware.com torrents page, the link for the 64-bit source DVD's torrent file is incorrectly linked to the Install DVD's torrent file.

EDIT: My mistake. Please ignore. (I did not realize that the Install link was all one link, thinking that the part in the the parentheses was a separate link.)

I'm still getting errors while seeding(Tracker section in the Ktorrent):
Code:

Error: requested download is not authorized for use with this tracker

Error: Timeout contacting tracker http://tracker2.transamrit.net:8082/announce

Then I used torrent file from liunxtracker but that didn't help although tracker section says status is OK.

PS. Originally I used the torrent from Slackware site, but then I used the torrent from linuxtracker and do a data check.

H_TeXMeX_H 09-30-2012 11:45 AM

It's true I got the same error from bittorrent, but I used bittornado (also in the /extras) and it works fine.

I use 'bittorrent' and have never used 'bittornado'. 'bittornado' is modified off shoot of bittorrent, what is the difference?

Seeding as well; just a bit surprised that the x86_64 iso (at least) is "only" 2.25 GB... somehow expected something ... larger :-)

TobiSGD 09-30-2012 04:01 PM

The ISOs are smaller than the previous ones because the /source directory got its own ISO. It doesn't fit anymore on the install DVD.

There are currently 400 seeds for the 32 bit installation .iso and 520 for the 64 bit :)

Well, for one there are multiple interface methods: curses, CLI, GUI, headless. Two, it works in this situation without error, while the official bittorrent errors every time. That's enough of a difference for me to use it from now on, even tho I rarely use torrents nowadays.

EDIT:
I notice this option is enabled by default and may have something to do with why it works:
Code:

--breakup_seed_bitfield <arg>
          sends an incomplete bitfield and then fills with have messages, in order to get around
          stupid ISP manipulation (defaults to 1)

Seeding the DVD! Yay new Slack!

Paulo2 10-01-2012 09:12 PM

Let's get the last Slackware release :D

Downloading the torrents right now.
My upload rate is very slow (just 60kB)
but tomorrow I will seed all day.

Can I burn the content of install dvd (32 or 64)
and source dvd into a double layer dvd?
Maybe merge these two dvds into one iso with Iso Master.

TobiSGD 10-01-2012 09:25 PM

I don't know if it works with Isomaster (never heard of that), but have a look here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...vd-4175422003/

Thanks for the link, I will take a look at that script.
My worry is with the dvd "boot sector".

I don't know if mounting an iso with boot sector
and then burning it's content will burn the boot sector too.

I use IsoMaster to edit iso images and Nero proprietary nrg images.

Hi,

@Paul02
I cannot speak for PV & Team but believe it would have been done that way if there was space to do it. You would be better off just downloading the desired images and then burn them.

Or order copies from the Slackware Store. :)

Paulo2 10-02-2012 07:32 AM

Hi onebuck, I think the three dvds together, 32 and 64 install and source dvd
doens't fit in one double layer dvd, but 32install+source or 64+source will fit,
the final size is about 5,5GB.

Maybe this huge iso isn't available for the size of file, or maybe because
double layer dvd isn't reliable. I've heard a lot of people getting trouble
with backups in double layer dvd, but I never had such problem.

I'm from Brazil and have no credit card, so I'm figuring out how buy some
stuff at Slackware store. The End of World Mayan t-shirt is very cool :)

Hi,

@Paulo2
I agree but the capability to download the ISO image of choice is better than trying to include the ISO arch & source. Not everyone needs the source so PV has provided the means to get source(required to abide by the Gnu/Gpl). That way the trimming at this point to try an include everything within one ISO image makes growth doable. Not everyone will facilitate 2xDVD/Blueray. More than one way to skin a cat! :) Note to PETA members: 'No cats are harmed at this point in time.' :hattip:
I have downloaded the tree and can get the source with no problem. I will either use the LAN or sneaker net whenever the source is needed. You might consider a USB Flash for the source since you can update over the net when ever necessary.

Bertical 10-02-2012 05:42 PM

I've got a mirror of slackware-14.0 on my local machine. How do I create an install DVD so I can seed ? Thanks

A little late to the fight, but now seeding both 32 and 64 bit DVDs.

Yeah, go Pat.

Whilst you could create a DVD image from your local mirror you cannot use this to seed. It will not be byte for byte identical with the official iso. If you want to seed, download the official iso and then seed that.

Alien Bob 10-05-2012 03:55 PM

You can use sligdo (a customized version of jigdo) to create a ISO image that is byte-for-byte identical to the Slackware ISO image if you have a local Slackware mirror setup.

As with 13.37, I'm seeding both the 32 and 64-bit DVD ISOs... ratio is roughly 2.35/2.3 respectively.

Just doing my share for the community!
I have a few raspberry-pi! One of them is doing a few things, one of them is seeding this torrents with rtorrent.
It's using SlackwareARM of course!
Just giving a little of my bandwidth to support this idea!
The files are in a 16 GB USB PEN connected to raspberry-pi!

Thank you all for working on this amazing project named Slackware!

j paul f 05-08-2013 12:30 PM

i am now one of 345 seeders

tommcd 05-08-2013 09:45 PM

I am still seeding Slackware 14 64 bit. I have seeded almost 30GB so far.
The ratio of seeders to downloaders must still be pretty good, since there does not seem to be much demand on my uploading. Many times it just sits idle.
Of course, there are probably fewer people downloading Slack 14 now than when it was first released.
Either way, I will happily keep seeding Slack!
