Just be patient with the torrents, once it hits Digg/Slashdot/Reddit, and people finish and start seeding, it'll pick up really fast.

 

I just fired up the torrents before leaving home this morning. :plane:

You could download it directly and then check it with bittorrent.

I already have it. The torrents were leaked several days ago, and they were very fast then.

Just installed, had to use res =1680x1050 at boot but other than that the install went very smoothly.

 

This release is pretty much as i expected it to be, simply amazing, speed? hell yeah! this makes ubuntu look like bloated version of vista put it that way ;)

 

One thing i'm VERY dissapointed it with is the nvidia driver install, openSuse is the only distro i know of now which doesnt have a one click install...

 

Got presented with X not working upon reboot of installing...

Type "sax2" from the command line as root.

An BTW, which card do you have?

 

I got it working in the end...i'll not say how...let's just say the first time round i had a big blonde moment and did something silly :)

 

So overall very happy, speedy as well, very fast package management, only disappointing thing was noticing firefox 3.5 beta was installed by default..and i have nothing but problems with firefox 3 on linux/windows/osx

You should be offered to configure your repos. Enable the mozilla one. There you'll find Firefox 3 final. But I must say I have exactly the same problems I had with 3 beta and RC. I might try to remove Firefox 3 and install 2.

Well, imagine you use bittornado (it is the best for this purpose).

Imagine you have downloaded openSUSE-11.0-DVD-i386-iso.

Now download the appropriate torrent, open it with bittornado and start it in another directory, only for a few seconds.

Now replace the 0 bytes iso with the one you downloaded previously. Start bittornado again. It will check the existing files and, if needed, complete the download.

It might work with other clients as well, like ktorrent or bittorrent.
