Post Any chance of delta patches for 10.9.92 Beta 3
I don’t see any deltas made available yet and my internet speed out here in the sticks is too slow for full down loads. I would sure appreciate it greatly. :bawling:

I'm creating a 32-bit delta right now--beta 2 to 3. I think it will still be at least a couple of hundred MB. I'll stick it up on Google Docs as soon as it's done.

The delta patch ended up at 464 MB. I have split it up into 50 MB chunks and am currently slowly uploading them.

Once you have them all in a directory, cat will rejoin them:

Code:
cat * > MEPIS_11-32bit_beta2_to_beta3.delta


Make sure the ten chunks are the only files in the folder, you don't want to glom other files onto the delta.
Next, make sure you have the "xdelta" package installed.

After the original delta file is recreated, add the older "SimplyMEPIS-DVD-TEST_10.9.90_32.iso" beta 2 iso to the folder and run

Code:
xdelta patch MEPIS_11-32bit_beta2_to_beta3.delta


and the 1.2 GB beta 3 iso file will be created.

Here's the ten parts of the delta file.

Hey Stevo, is that command all that's needed to update the beta2? If so can't wait to give it a go.

Bill.

P.S. Thank you for your continued support too. :worship:

No, that just rejoins the chunks back into the original file. I'll put up the patch command when I finish uploading the chunks.

info on the patch:

Code:
$ xdelta info MEPIS_11-32bit_beta2_to_beta3.delta
xdelta: version 1.1.3 found patch version 1.1 in MEPIS_11-32bit_beta2_to_beta3.delta (compressed)
xdelta: output name:   SimplyMEPIS-DVD-TEST_10.9.92_32.iso
xdelta: output length: 1252923392
xdelta: output md5:    3523b19bd34487d569cff9d97ea395f2

Thank you Steve your the man. I just finished the downloads and recombined the files successfully and then rebuilt iso to beta 3.All went well. I had tried to download 64bit last night and gave up after failing halfway through download twice. The smaller downloads just work. :spinning:
