Been check since midnight and I saw the folders date & time reflected about 14:09 today when the changes were made

If you want to download all the iso images from Linux

Code:
wget http://ubuntu.mirror.ac.za/ubuntu-release/karmic/ubuntu-9.10-desktop-i386.iso &

wget http://ubuntu.mirror.ac.za/ubuntu-release/karmic/ubuntu-9.10-desktop-amd64.iso &

wget http://ubuntu.mirror.ac.za/ubuntu-release/karmic/ubuntu-9.10-server-i386.iso &

wget http://ubuntu.mirror.ac.za/ubuntu-release/karmic/ubuntu-9.10-server-amd64.iso &

wget http://ubuntu.mirror.ac.za/ubuntu-release/karmic/ubuntu-9.10-netbook-remix-i386.iso &

SAIX and IS still have the rc versions. So for now only mirror.ac.za has been updated.

Is there any way one can split a download in half?

We have a 500mb/week internet qouta and I want to download half now and half next week but webmarshal picks up the file and blocks it immediately :confused:

A download manager like getright should be the tool as you can resume the rest on Monday

The problem is not about resuming later. Webmarshal instantly picks up the file size as I click on the link and complains that it is bigger than 500mb.

Looks like I'm stuck :(

I downloaded Ubuntu 9.04 not long ago, I am hoping to install my first Linux (Ubuntu) tomorrow. If I install 9.04 will I be able to upgrade to 9.04 or will I still have to download the whole thing?

Just google jigdo - it actually "builds" your ISO from packages on the web. So it only downloads (many) small single files.

It then compiles your ISO from these files. What is great is that its used to update ISOs as well by only downloading the packages that have changed. So you can keep it up to date. If your behind a proxy then it will pull the cached packages.

One of the guys used jigdo to update a 8.10 ISO a few weeks back. As most packages where cached, it only took a couple of megs to complete the ISO
