    [ubuntu] Re: Make apt-get MUCH faster using aria2!

    let us know how it works.

    my updates with apt-get usually run in the 100-300k/sec range. using this method, it was 600k+/sec.

    First, if you don't already have aria2 installed,

    aria2 gets the URI, filename, size, sha-256...

    I've seen one server admin complain, but most don't seem to mind.

  8. Re: HOWTO: Download Ubuntu ISOs from multiple mirrors at once

    I suppose you could test the same URL w/ curl or wget. if they have problems, then it's your config. if they don't, its aria2.

    aria2 won't use weird ports on just http downloads.

    you also might...

    Re: Wubi *buntu ISO download using BitTorrent

    You sound more like a candidate for the ubuntu live CD.

    To get the full speed out of the metalink, you'd need to use a metalink client that supports multi-source downloading, which is...

    Re: Windows 98 feedback

    That's a good idea. Since it's using .metalinks anyway, those on 9x systems could just use another metalink downloader (one of the download managers that runs on 9x, not sure which still do) to get...

    Re: Best Download Manager?

    I really like aria2 (apt-get it, then 'aria2c' is the command from a terminal). DTA! is much more stable now (a beta recently came out), and if you still have trouble they are heavily into fixing...

    Re: Edubuntu with Wubi?

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think they do. There are automatically generated metalinks for Edubuntu (& Kubuntu/Ubuntu) at http://download.packages.ro/metalink/edubuntu/ and their...

    Re: Installing Mint Linux

    I might be wrong, but I don't think LM has an alternate ISO? In that case, having a metalink for the normal ISO wouldn't help.

    Re: Segmented downloading with .metalink

    Plenty of people seem to be using it to download Ubuntu ISOs, it just isn't official.

  21. Poll: Re: Windows based installer - testers and developers wanted

    I didn't test it with torrents, but I did edit the chunk checksums for a file to be incorrect. I logged the transfer and aria2 expects those to be right, so it just keeps trying to reget that chunk....
