Re: jigdo-lite for windows


i can only test on Debian GNU/Linux, not on MS-Windows.
I ran

  $ jigdo-lite

and was asked for the URL

  To start a new download, enter URL of .jigdo file.

I gave the one of CD 1 to keep the test small:


You will probably begin by


It then showed lots of messages and asked

  Alternatively, just press enter if you want to start downloading
  the remaining files.
  Files to scan:

So i just pressed enter.
It asked me for a Debian mirror

  Debian mirror [http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/]: 

I just pressed enter again.
Now i got internet traffic. jigdo-lite fetched the Debian packages which
fit into the holes of the .template file.
(At this point i have to re-iterate that netinst .iso CDs would
 fetch only what is needed when it is needed. So if internet is
 available at installation time in good quality ...)

After a few minutes the CD image was complete

  OK: Checksums match, image is good!   

I am mistrusting and determine the MD5 checksum of the result file

  $ md5sum debian-8.3.0-amd64-CD-1.iso
  a3e289b886c43150431b05b091c51ad8  debian-8.3.0-amd64-CD-1.iso

This matches the first line in

To get the complete collection of all Debian packages you will have
to do this with each of the 13 DVD .jigdo files in
(The two debian-update DVDs are not needed, afaik.)
With Blu-ray, it would be only 3 media images.

Have a nice day :)
