Hello,

I was wondering why there isn't a bittorrent link to download new .iso's (maybe there is one and I haven't found it?)? It is diffecult and sometimes very slow to get a download slot on any of the mirrors, especially when a new release comes out. I want to try out Gentoo but all the ftp sites I have tried I haven't been able to get a slot.


Thanks

I think that this is a great idea but I don't really have issue with finding a mirror that works. Which ones have you tried? I usually go for heanet since I find it to be very fast and always available. But maybe I have just been lucky? :?

yeah i've been having problems as well.

just tried to get Gentoo PPC install disc and it got upto 580MB then just stopped!! :x what's up with that???!!!!

BitTorrent would be a much faster way of DL'ing Gentoo especially around the time of new releases. at least then there's no chance of it timing out... and you won't lose whatever you've already downloaded.

so who wants to seed them all? i especially want the PPC-install iso...

it's just ridiculous trying to download them from http. i just tried ftp as well... but it needs a password? i never read anything about what username of password to use, so i can use ftp either. :( or maybe it just sucks because there's only 3 mirrors for Australia. :x
