Torrents for RC3 to final xdelta patches up
Wow, that was fun
After riding my ever popular 'oh this has to be possible'
wave, I finally got to shore.
Perhaps a little late for anyone actually using the patch, and a great learning experience nonetheless.
So, my first ever torrent - thanks of course to the creator of the wiki page ( http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php?title=Creating_a_torrent
) and to SilverBear for his torrent creation page ( http://sblinux.org/pages/deluge-new.html
- I am not sure I would have made it there without you folks.
While both how-tos were a little outdated ( probably older versions of ktorrent and deluge were referenced ), after a week or so of trying and giving up for the night, I was able to get a valid torrent created at linuxtracker.org.
The main stumbling block seemed to be getting the right files ( original and .torrent ) in the right directories in my /Download directory. Its always the little details that seem to trip me up.
During the process ( as usual ), I came up with a few questions that I hope you can help with.
- Can someone torrent the files so I can be sure that it worked?
- Also, if possible, can someone seed for a day or two so that I can pull the seed off of my main box and then pull it back into my plug server. As both machines have the same outward facing ip address, I can't be sure which one is actually seeding. Currently the plug server is showing as seeding, yet when I turn Deluge off on the main box and check with linuxtracker, the torrent shows up as dead. I know that I will figure it out eventually, but don't want to lose the torrent at linuxtracker ( first priority ) while I play with a solution.
- I am a little hesitant about editing the wiki to bring it up to date - is there a process to present a possible edit to a moderator before overwriting someone else's work?
- Minor, but still - is the correct title for the newest release SimplyMepis 11 or Mepis 11? The mepis.org page ( http://www.mepis.org/node/162
) refers to it as Mepis 11, though the torrent on linuxtracker.org refers to it as SimplyMepis 11 - again, not a big deal to me, just trying to be consistent when putting anything out in the public.
