Hi all!

I'm just wondering if anyone of you guys know from where I can grab the unofficial sid-dvd's.

Since "jigdo" doesn't support such large files in Windows, and I'm still setting up my SUSE (still a newbie), I would want to try to grab them from a FTP trough Windows.

Preferably a swedish mirror if possible. Thanks in advance!

Whoops, noticed I posted in the wrong section. Stupid me. Hope someone can move it to the right one.

SID DVD images are available from here:

I would use rsync to download the images, after there are issues with 2GB+ files over FTP/HTTP

There is also a swedish mirror, but only for the CD images:

I was wondering if there are any mirrors in the U.S. because it times out every time I try to download...

The last that I looked, the official dvd images were only available via jigdo or Bitorrent.

How are you trying to download them now? Kbear, Gftp?

Download the sarge or woody net install iso, I know it's weird but hear me out. go through the install then when you get asked to supply your apt sources choose to edit the list by hand it will open up an editor just put in the sid sources of your choice.

you can use mine.

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib
deb http://non-us.debian.../debian-non-US/ sid/non-US main contrib
deb-src http://non-us.debian.../debian-non-US/ sid/non-US main contrib

# deb http://marillat.free.fr/ unstable main
deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ unstable main

deb http://gunnm.org/~soda/ unstable main contrib
deb-src http://gunnm.org/~soda/ unstable main contrib

deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free

I know this may not be teh answer to your question but imo this is the best way to install sid. an iso image can be found here if you still want to download a big ol file.
