Just found out you can download VL isos from Mininova:

If you know of any other bittorrent feeds for VL isos, please post them to this thread. I will add them to the first post, or remove them if they are later found to be dead by someone (so please post that info too).

great.

You can add the file to many many trackers,guys. =)
Why not use

http://linuxtracker.org/

Also,you can combine both ftp,http and bittorent downloading by creating a metalink of the file. This is helpful for people with slower connection.

I'd be interested to know how fast the download gets w/ metalink, for people with a speedy connection.

I haven't looked into the metalinker thang, but did create a torrent for VL5.8-SOHO-B2.

You can snatch stuff here:

http://linuxtracker.org/torrents-details.php?id=3737&hit=1 (http://linuxtracker.org/torrents-details.php?id=3737&hit=1)

and here:

http://www.mininova.org/tor/618529 (http://www.mininova.org/tor/618529)

both use the same tracker and torrent though.

VL5.8-SOHO-RC1 Torrent on Linuxtracker.org   ;D

Title: Older versions of VL
Post by: kalahary on September 03, 2007, 09:44:34 am
Hi,  where can I get an older version? because I need for  MMX200, 2.5GB HD, 144MB RAM, is that possible?
Thanks a lot

I have loaded VL5.8 Standard Gold on a P200 machine with 128MB RAM and it worked fine. But with only 2.5GB of hard drive space you will have to exclude some of the packages. I suggest excluding browsers you don't need, maybe the Gimp, the kernel source, etc and it should then fit in 2.5GB of space. You only need 256MB of swap space with that amount of RAM.

If you really want an older version of VL get them here: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/

(that link by the way is on our webpage, under downloads).

I think you should be able to install 5.9 on that hardware, if you omit some package selections during installation.
 Some older versions are still available though, and you can locate them by going to http://vectorlinux.com/ and navigate to the downloads page. Check the mirrors list too, while you're there.

A confused N00B here ...

what's the difference between Deluge and Metalink, which has 'GetItRight' and 'DownThemAll' <- and are those also bit-torrents?

do we have a how2 here on this?   Although I understand the principle, Bit torrent seems alien to an old Windows user like me.  ::)

thanks

Can anybody with experience create torrents for the latest VL release?.. I'll seed.. I just dont know how to make the things and put them up for grabs anywhere.

It's pretty simple. http://www.wikihow.com/Create-a-Torrent

If you're going to seed it, you should most likely create the torrent itself along with the seed.

It's a pretty straight forward process... My main problem is with the trackers... I dont know if I need to provide them... if I do which one? can I use more than one? There is a link to what is supposed to give you a list of trackers on that site you linked, but the link returns a sql error... so not good.
Title: Re: Bittorrent downloads for VL isos
Post by: retired1af on June 15, 2011, 01:02:43 pm
You should provide a public tracker. Some of the more popular are:

ThePirateBay.org

Mininova.org

Torrentz.com

IsoHunt.com

BTJunkie.com

TorrentBox.com

TorrentReactor.net

Yay!... I got it.

I my dear friends, am no longer ignorant re: torrents.

If anyone is interested, I created a test of the 7.0 RC1.7 and have currently 2 hosts seeding it.
Download and seed to help me test... I need to make sure I did this right.

This will probably get me banned.
Go dig in the dumpster behind COMP USA and see if you can upgrade. It is 2011+1/2
Ridiculous.
