    Hardy is slow because servers are full?

    Hello. I've switched to Hardy and it seems to be terribly slow. Am I right to assume that it is just because it's opening day? For example, I can't download the restricted drivers for my NVidia card. It just stalls at the download bar. I also can't get any updates. Is this just high server load at the moment?

    Yup, servers are probably packed to the brim right now with people upgrading/pulling down new packages.

    It's running slow as all hell here while I'm trying to slap dmraid on a fresh install so I can reboot then spend the better part of a month updating.

    I'm guessing so. AFIAK, everything runs off the single server (iso downloads, torrents, updates etc.)

    Question while I'm thinking about this: is it a better idea to maybe use a server in a place that won't get as much traffic right now, eg the Australasian servers?

    EDIT: To answer my own question, I'm using an Australian server now, and things are moving along at about three times speed of the European servers.

    GB server is so slow right now I may as well rewrite the apps myself and compile.

    Well, my upgrade took a total of ~ 4 hours to Download and install. Now I trying to download some packets and its took 2:13 just to do a get-apt update.

    There are torrents available? Where?

    I would think that a torrent would be far less likely to be affected by a slow server once several seeds had been established.

    The torrents are available for the CDs, not for the updates. You can find the torrents in the release page.

    Oh, and if you think your speed is bad, just look at mine:

    Unless I'm blind, I didn't see a link to this on the main download page.
