Hi, I tried again to run a torrent on a site again but after spending 4 hours uploading again it said "sorry we are doing a service" or something like that.
Sorry I couldn't help

Sit Heel Speak, I've experienced difficulties downloading both versions as well. I still haven't even got to try it yet myself because my 2 download attempts were both incomplete. I'm redownloading it again and this time going to check the md5sum against the image. I need to get into the habit of doing that more often.

Can anyone recommend a firefox extension that automatically verifies md5? md5hashtool doesn't say it works with 2.0+ although it looks really good and Fire-Encrypter looks like it might work but not sure if it's automated. I'll give it a whirl. It'd be nice to find something that integrates into the download manager though and just show the md5 sum upon completion (or failure).

Use Xwget from the menu (it will provide a reliable download - using this I never have to do a md5sum)
start / internet / Xwget
It should really be added here and to other manuals

HI, I've looked at the site for torrents
These were the stats for this page....[snip]...

I wonder if it wrong? Or should we be making more effort to promote the torrents?

It's probably right, given that everything there is pretty old news. The latest looks like Java 1.5.06! Notice that no file is bigger than 80Mb. They probably couldn't handle a bigger file, but if you are keen to get torrents going, a PM to Puppian should sort out whether he can handle 2.15CE - either edition.


The url of our torrent site is:

It used to be a tracker long time ago but now it's no more, so there's no statistics for the more recent torrents (and the stats. for some old torrents may have gone wrong, I should have fixed it, but anyway it's not that important since those torrents are so old). But the torrents should be working. The files can be downloaded as long as there are seeders Smile

If someone created a torrent for the iso and upload it to linuxtracker.org,
I can grab it and have it listed at our torrent site.

To creating a .torrent file:
I'll use the popular Azureus as an example here, but other programs surely have a similar process. So creating a .torrent file is actually easy, not much to it.

In Azureus:
1. File menu -> Create a Torrent.
2. Make sure "Use an external Tracker" is selected, and use the URL stated in the upload page as the Announce URL.
3. Leave "Add Multi-Tracker..." unchecked.
4. Select "Single File" if you're only doing it for one file.
5. Click next, then locate the file you want to share.
6. Click next. The default data shown should be fine.
Go ahead and check "Open torrent for seeding when done" and click Finish.
7. It will then create the .torrent file (in it's 'torrent' directory configured at setup).
8. Now just upload this torrent file to the site
9. Post the link to torrent so people can download it.

Anyone who is interested in bittorrent can check this thread out.
