Where to get the Debian (unstable sid) DVD's?

Recommended Posts

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!

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.org/debian-non-US/ sid/non-US main contrib

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.
