Read and go!Â Please use a mirror if possible.Â If you’re feeling torrentish, Christian Sturm has a BitTorrent link.
I just wanna try the 2.0. But this torrent link doesn’t work.
B.T.W. How to unzip the .gz images. (That’s why I have to use the torrent instead of iso images)
gzip can open files that end in gz – http://www.gzip.org/ – I don’t know offhand of anyplace that has a non-compressed version, as that eats up a lot more bandwidth. It would be handy to have a zipped copy.
The domain that hosted the bittorrent link appears to have reached its bandwidth limit.
I hope that this doesn’t sound like an advertisement, but I always used 7-zip on Windows. It supports a lot of formats, it’s pretty fast and also has a small command line version.
Of course it’s open source.
Two other ideas:
Placing a gzip executable on the mirrors (like NetBSD has rawrite2.exe on their mirors)
Stop using compression and only have ISOs
Link to 7-zip:
Oh and their 7z format is very good. This would save a lot of space and traffic. I’m hope it will replace gz and bz2 someday. If you know LZMA, that’s maunly, what 7z is.
Again, sorry for the advertising.
