Gigsaw (jigdo) download for SL 3.2

Post by artimess » Thu Nov 30, 2006 15:45

Considering the size of DVD and the limitations of some of us, could it be possible to have version suitable for jigdo? It is really practical for those of for low bandwidth who cannot condem the machine for few days to get this downloaded.

I'd second the jigdo motion...
For me PERSONALLY, I don't have a high bandwith connection (think dialup). It would be nice to have a jigdo file for it. I can get online for possibly 2 hours at a time at the library, and the torrents just take too long.

Why no torrent love?

Well, as I see jigdo gives you big advantages on the server side. On Debian you can assemble the files with a packages mirror, too, and don't need to keep the isos everywhere (see jigdo website). This brings much more mirrors in the field, but Sabayon has no packages (yet) and therefore no package mirrors.
Where are the advantages on the client side?

Torrent has the big advantage of sharing your upload, too. You can even buy a DVD and support Sabayon ;-)
