If theres a xdelta for loop3 to 3.4-final it may help the bandwidth a bit. Many still have the loop3.iso no?
Is there a xdelta coming ??

I'd love to give this a try.

However, before I download and burn two more DVDs, I'm curious if this addresses the issue the loop releases had with IDE based DVD drives.

I completely support regular releases, but I think I might sit this one out. I don't see anything I might use except for wine doors & maybe compiz.

2.6.22.1


Excellant and thanks for a quick reply. Im looking forward to trying this out, if this torrent ever finishes. :P

I can only get around 0.4kb/s download speed, what is going on here?

Downloading now.... I've been waiting for this release for a long time....Actually four months isn't that long but with a distro like this two days would have been a long time. Thanks for the great work devs. I know that this release will be the best one by far.

Guys,

I'm going to have to pull my 100% torrent upload soon. Now seeding for about 16 hours and only uploaded 1.3 gigs - yet it's killing my net access; doing anything is painful and x20 as long.

Y'know, I'm wondering if torrent is the way to go with distro distribution.

I read Cringely - and every now & again he goes on about TV over the Internet. Seems like this was always intended and the "broadcast" protocol was built in from day 1. This supports a broadcast from a central server which is then re-broadcast from proxies. Now, if a distro was set up like that in a circular buffer - the central server just broadcasts the distro in a loop for days and people just access this from - where ever they find it; it will wrap around in a while and there you go. All the extra load is on the proxies.

That possible??

Perhaps a more modern version is a "digital radio stream" that should amount to the same thing.

The thing that amazes me is that - for torrents, the overhead and management seems to suck up just as much bandwidth as the data txfers! IF I limit the number who can access the feed, the throughput rises. It seems like there is a lot of digital pushing & shoving / elbowing going on.

This must have been fixed before!

man, don't do it to your full pipe speed, decrease it by a bit, 10-20 kb lower than your full pipe speed, both for download and upload, and you torrent will be happy, and you browse + chat + email experience also .... for browsing use a local cache, like squid, maybe too heavy, or scache ...

it is, period ... no more discussion here i hope, if you think this problem in a logical way ... for example for me this time torrent download quality was excelent ... is only a sign, for me and lxnay i hope, that is good news and sabayon is more and more popular and its distributing infrastructure better .... problem can be only because low seeds numbers, or poor ISP performance and/or policy vs. torrent in his gardens .... i hope discussion is over about this ....

and you pay extra cash buck's for that privilege .... for this type of things that flag was reserved ....
how you can hope that can be better than torrent way when so many ISP is so grumpy about 'too many torrents in my garden' !? quote "All the extra load is on the proxies.", you see the problem here? in torrent way the proxies where us ... nothing is free as a 'free beer' ....
linux is free, the expertise to harness it is not!
you don't make so much money selling open source software!
You make MORE money USING it, just like google!
