They are at:
and soon should be at:
They've got about 200MB of the first CD so far, and are getting it at about
100KB a second, so should have the first in about an hour, and then another
one every hour and a half or so after that.
Access to cdimage.debian.org is password restricted, so anyone that wants to
get them from there will have to mail me for a password (generally only public
mirrors qualify for passwords, but a beta tester or two should be OK ---
especially if they are in the UK, since that incurs no extra cost for NetCOM
UK --- the ISP that gives us the bandwidth), although it's probably best for
people to go to sunsite anyway.
BTW, am I right in thinking that slink1.raw and the single_cd image cannot in
fact be the same thing ?
Also, do the source CDs for different architectures actually end up different,
or not ? --- it would be good if they were the same for all architectures,
to save space for the mirrors.
And finally, it is OK to run just the final stages of slink_cd, i.e.:
slink_cd -v $ARCH image
if you interrupt the image creation bit of a run ?
I'm just doing this for the m68k images to see how it goes --- which other
architectures are worth building at present ?
