Mint 5 download incomplete

Postby T J Tulley » Tue Jun 10, 2008 8:10 am

I downloaded LinuxMint-5 and the md5sum was wrong. Properties show that the download is only 69.2 MB.

I selected the download from the index of /pub/ in - it indicated that it would take ~3 hours, but was completed in about 40 minutes.

Any hints before I try again? No way to resume?

I've read the Release notes - look very interesting, but possibly a few problems remain.
Yours hopefully -

I was getting some of the same issues while attempting to download from the HEAnet mirror. I switched over to the University of Crete mirror and downloaded with no problem.

You will probably get your best download via the torrent. That takes a load off the servers, too. Good luck!
