Mirrors for Linux Mint 2.2 Bianca (Beta 014)

Postby clem on Thu Feb 01, 2007 11:06 am

Hi,

As you can see the announcement made for Bianca Beta 014 has generated a lot of traffic on the website and a lot of people are currently downloading the ISO.

This makes our website, forum and wiki (oh yes, I haven't told anybody about that yet..) quite slow.

If you can act as a mirror and host the ISO file, we will be glad to put a link to your server in the download section. Hopefully, this will make the download faster for users and the website, forums and wiki faster for us.

Clem.

Mirror

Postby _coolsson_ on Fri Feb 02, 2007 6:16 am

After long and hard negotiations, the owner of Sethcom (my wife) donated 0.5 TB of traffic for a mirror.

Feel free to add the link to the download page.

http://www.linuxmint.sethcom.net/LinuxM ... TA-014.iso

The server is located in Texas and has a 100 Mb/s connection.

Did you guys notice how much faster things are today? I want to thank Michael from Lintelligence.de for that. After a lot of hits went on their server for the ISO file, Michael provided a torrent.

Our server is now fast again and we can enjoy the forums "at normal speed" :)

You can track the number of downloads for Bianca from here:
http://www.lintelligence.de/download/LinuxMint/Beta

As I'm writing this Bianca was downloaded 5916 times. There seems to be more than 1 download per second at the moment :)

Many thanks to lintelligence.de for that again.

md5???

Postby os-iso on Fri Feb 02, 2007 1:00 pm

How do I do that?


Hi coolsson!

Just enter your server with a simple program named "putty" and type:

md5sum LinuxMint-2.2-BETA-014.iso

compare the result with the md5 on the downloadpage - that's all.

Hi Coolson,

I'm putting a link to your download on the website. If you want to make an intermediate page with a download counter and maybe an advert, contact me by PM. That way everybody's happy, we get a new mirror from where we can track the number of downloads and you make a bit of money out of the bandwidth you spend for us.

Angela, Coolson,

This is great news for everybody. Thanks a lot for mirroring this release. If you have a way to count the downloads or the traffic, please do. So far we've had about 13,000 downloads on lintelligence.de.

Well you can add http://theporto.com/mint/ccount/click.php?id=1
as another mirror. The md5sum has been verified.

Unfortunately not sure if I'll be able to keep a track of how many times it gets down loaded.
