Re: jigdo files for sid-dvd

A few days ago (May 24--May 25) I tried to download the sid-dvd images from ftp://ftp.fsn.hu/pub/CDROM-Images/debian-unofficial/sid-dvd/ but failed. I'm sure that's because of a new file upload. I read ../NEWS, to ensure this cannot happen and finished the download sunday morning at 6am (GMT+02).
As previously stated, my machine broke, so I had to find (actually buy) another one. There were many problems after that (bad Linux kernels, etc), so the production of these images could be only started this week.

Currently I am trying to figure out how much time does a full build need.

I was able to download sid-i386-1.iso and to mount it via loopback. I compared the checksum:
 $ md5sum -c md5sum.txt
and got
attempt to access beyond end of device
07:00 rw=0, want=2097152, limit=2097151
attempt to access beyond end of device
07:00 rw=0, want=2097154, limit=2097151
Maybe you are running a Linux kernel which is unable to handle bigger than 2/4 GB files...

All files except the first 4179 (of 8xxx) in md5sum.txt are unreadable! I checked the image using isovfy, isoinfo, ... but it seems to be OK. Any ideas how to fix this?

I want to use jigdo, but there are no files in jigdo/. Where can I get these files?
They will eventually get out, but this won't change your behaviour of your OS...

Another question: Why are there two small images instead of a large one?
DVD's support up to 4.37GB, is the 2GB limit for older DVD-RAM media?
The files are 4687953920 and 1139769344 bytes in size. 4.36 and 1.06 GBs.

If your downloaded file takes only 2 GBs then see the above, upgrade :)

Hint: The absolut path in sid-dvd/MD5SUMS (/home/debiancd/out/sid-dvd/)
should be replaced by a local one, so that there's no need to edit this file.
Thanks for noticing this, I will fix them.
