just a quick question

Postby r3skyline » Thu Dec 06, 2007 1:50

i was downloading the 3.4f edition of sabayon and i noticed that the dvd download links are smaller than mini editions....what gives? i have no way to do it via torrent because i dont have an internet connection at home but i can download at 3MBPS at my school :D . is this right tho? is the dvd supposed to be smaller than the mini edition or is something up?

Ofcourse the DVD isn't smaller in size.

What mirror did you pick for downloading?

Are you using HTTP mirrors or FTP mirrors? I ask this because HTTP mirrors often have trouble handling files as larger than 2 gigs.

Go to this download site http://cross-lfs.sabayonlinux.org scroll down to the seventh line for 3.4f 32 bit or the 15th line for 64bit dvd. I have always got good downloads using this site.

ive been trying the http ones because the ftp mirrors over here at the schools only get around 50kbps max, but when i try to download through an http, the schools connection allows it to hit 2MBPS max :D. also, the link you gave me eshum doesnt work. as in, the list shows up but the downloads only have a file size of 230MB for the dvd for 3.4f and 390ish for the dvd for 3.4e :( .

The file sizes shown are 4.2 gigs and 4.4 gigs respectively. I have downloaded both files and they burn accurately. Checked both listings twice in the last hour and nothing has changed. What browser are you using some older versions of firefox will not download files larger then 2500 megs.
