I have been trying to download the LATEST-Stable.iso.gz a couple of
times from a few of the mirriors and with my slow dial-up the
download stops due to the mirriors updating the iso. Takes me
between 12 to 16 hours to get the file. I was wondering if this file
is only updated once a day or how often and if only once a day is
there a set time when it occurs so I could time start my download?
Would like to get a newer iso, but will use my dfly-1.0A_REL.iso if
all else fails on another machine.
Hello Bryan. The LATEST-Stable.iso.gz is just a symlink to the latest
ISO. This would explain why your download gets halted, since this
symlink changes every 24 hours to a new image.
Try to download this ISO image, it is the latest one on my mirror.
Also, make sure you download with some kind of resume-capable download
software incase your connection is unrelieable.
(replace http with ftp if you prefer that).
Hope this helps!
