how can add your ftp downloaded iso to official torrent

you can add your downloaded iso to official torrent tracker as a full seed, without waiting for torrent to complete in this way:

1. download official torrent file
http://linuxtracker.org/download.php?id=4387&name=SabayonLinux-x86-3.4a.iso.torrent

2. begin torrent download in azureus, for example, and after file creation is complete and some two - tree minutes of activity, to see if all setup is correct, stop the torrent and azureus

3. download the iso from http or ftp mirror, if you find one Wink

4. check the md5sums, and the file name to be identical

5. move, or only copy to be more safe, your iso and overwrite the iso image created by azureus

6. open again azureus client, and now start again the torrent

7. if all is in good shape, azureus will be smart and see that torrent is already completed, do a manual check in azureus to be sure, if all is ok now you torrent should be in seed state spreading the good news too all of us, not so lucky like you

i hope this will boost the torrent swarm more ... :oops: :oops: :oops:

or as a variant more quicker, you can skip first torrent iso file generation, download the iso from ftp or http, check it's integrity via md5sums, open torrent file in azureus, and when want to create torrent iso, point it to the directory where is real iso ... azureus will be smart, see that file is already here, will check it and see that his torrent checksum is correct, and skip torrent file generation & download altogether , adding it to the seed polls, as a completed torrent .... easy like one, two, tree ... :P :P :P
