Re: Getting LATEST-Stable

I have been trying to download the LATEST-Stable.iso.gz a couple of
times from a few of the mirriors and with my slow dial-up the download
stops due to the mirriors updating the iso. Takes me between 12 to 16
hours to get the file. I was wondering if this file is only updated
once a day or how often and if only once a day is there a set time when
it occurs so I could time start my download? Would like to get a newer
iso, but will use my dfly-1.0A_REL.iso if all else fails on another
Hello Bryan. The LATEST-Stable.iso.gz is just a symlink to the latest
ISO. This would explain why your download gets halted, since this
symlink changes every 24 hours to a new image.
Try to download this ISO image, it is the latest one on my mirror. Also,
make sure you download with some kind of resume-capable download
software incase your connection is unrelieable.
(replace http with ftp if you prefer that).
Hope this helps!
