Torrent: Can I Help?

Post by konaexpress » Thu Sep 29, 2011 11:53 am

Hi, new here. I see over at Linux Tracker you need to seed your Deb version. I can't download it to help seed it. Is there a way to download it from http and convert it to a torrent file? I can't do much to help this community but I know how to leave my computer on. -John

The easiest is to download the iso from http or ftp, then download and start the torrent. Point the torrent download to the directory where you downloaded the iso. The torrent program will the verify and start seeding.
