Update: PhoenixOS Flamehawk Hardy

Post  Admin on Thu Apr 22, 2010 4:28 pm

Due to numerous request, PhoenixOS Flamehawk Hardy has been updated and will be uploaded shortly.

PhoenixOS Flamehawk Karmic will be renamed PhoenixOS Stealth so there wont be any confusions, and that version will be going up in a week; fingers crossed!

Sounds good Ray.

Incidentally if you are naming versions using numerical dating, it would archive on a computer better if you used the format YYMMDD. Otherwise for example a version April 2010 would be sorted below a new one of January 2011 .

updated PhoenixOS

Post  Bob3 on Mon Apr 26, 2010 4:13 pm

I "finally" [last night] got around to running only the 2nd update to one of my installs, which didn't complete properly (I think, haven't eyeballed it yet today).
It'll be nice to have it that much farther along, got several machines here in need of "updating" with old [8.xx] Kubuntu installs that I was planning on replacing with fresh Phoenix installs.

Tanx Ray, your hard work on this IS appreciated!

Hi Ray,

I've fallen out of the loop on this one. Just noticed on the Linux Internationals forum some comment and came here to investigate.

In my usual way I am focusing on better methods of downloading the ISOs and currently am using aria2 with much success. It only takes a few minutes to create a .torrent file. Then if the torrent file is used in conjunction with the FTP download, aria2 will check and verify the file, ensuring better reliability in the download. Also aria2 will create multiple threads, improving the speed of the download. All that even if there is no torrent running.

I posted a How-to on my Wiki, for the earlier release, and will update it once I have the information for this one. But, pretty please, can you create the .torrent file and make it available?

You can create your own metalink, which could include both the .torrent and the FTP URL(s) and aria2 will use all that information to maximise the download.

How to get PhoenixOS aria2 metalinks

Create a metalink on-line

Simply fill in the form, generate the metalink and download it to use.

I've now added further information in my Wiki about using metalink.py to create both the .torrent and the .metalink files at the same time, for multiple ISOs in the same directory.

I have updated my Wiki page as far as I can go without having the ISO file and/or the .torrent file, but I have included the simple steps needed to create both the .torrent file and the .metalink file.

http://pgtips91.pbworks.com/How-to-get-PhoenixOS-with-aria2-and-metalinks

Hope you can find some time shortly to post these auxiliary files so I can use them to download and try your latest release. I'm sure that you will find it quick and simple to do and it will be another tool in your tool-kit for the future.

I think that it is worth supplying the .torrent file as with its use a failed download can be rescued even if there isn't a torrent running. Simply run aria2 with '--check-integrity=true' option set. Aria2 will check the local file and verify that it is a valid copy of the target file, and if not will download the chunks that fail the test, either from the ftp site or the torrent or whichever source it can.
