Will you seed on this torrent, it will have a fairly well-established swarm by then.

I have my up throttled to 500K so I don't get my connection killed. :) But my up is being taken completely. I see 3 seeders.

I checked a few other mirrors and they aren't up yet. torrent is faster. only 2 seeders, but more peers are coming on, so speed is 150k-300k.

Thanks guys. Please be patient and seed this to 1.0 before you reboot to install. Thanks!

Historically, how long does a Linux Mint KDE distro take to go from RC to stable?

Seeding, what's the protocol? Ratio of 1:1 or twenty four hours?

It would be nice to give back what you took, so at least ratio 1:1
If you have a netbook or another machine to seed on, do it while it's installing.

I already did that, kept off the Internet until downloading was done. Now at .47 Ratio, thanks. Seeding to eleven right now. I'll probably stay on past 1 :1

Thanks a lot.
Could this become the "official" torrent for the RC?
It would save everyone adding a new one.

I'm very sorry to announce this, but I uploaded the wrong torrent to this site. MD5 does not match.
I'm sorry to waste everyone's time and bandwidth.

I grabbed it from the FTP server at 1.5MB/s, and used unetbootin to copy it across to a USB drive. I booted that and installed just fine. I'm now updating and installing nvidia drivers etc.

My md5 matches, so I am continuing the seeding.

Ok I downloaded the iso again, tried to install it from USB and later from a DVD, still the same problem ... I get to the menu where I can choose if I want to run Mint, install, check DVD etc ... whatever I choose, i get to see some letters about stuff loading, a lot of dots appear (part of the loading process) and then it just goed black screen and I can wait forever, nothing will happen anymore.

Strange thing is, right now I am running Mint8 main on this laptop without a hitch, and Mint 7 KDE also worked fine ... as did OpenSUSE 11.2! So Mint8 KDE RC1 is the only one I have problems with :(

my specs: (its a laptop)
