Download Feisty with Bittorrent
Happy Release Day ! Assuming you weren’t one of the hard core thousands lined up all night long to download feisty the second it was released, you’re hoping to hold a freshly baked ISO of the world’s greatest OS pretty soon.
So you’d like to download feisty, but can’t find a working server, or it’s really slow because everyone is downloading feisty right now, or you don’t know which bittorrent file to choose and you’re not sure which one is still the old beta and which is the new ‘official’ release of feisty… Relax, don’t you worry!
Chances are you’re looking for “ubuntu-7.04-desktop-i386.iso” for your typical PC. You can download the torrent file here.
Last I checked theres over
a thousand 4000 people seeding it, so its a nice and fast download. (Once you’re done downloading, it’s helpful if you leave bittorrent running for a while to share with others.)
Once you’ve downloaded the ISO, how do you know if you’ve got the correct version, or just some old incorrectly labeled file? Just to prove I’m honest, check the MD5SUM–you can read how to do it here.
The MD5 sum for the new release of feisty is:
How do you find out the correct MD5 sum, like the one I just included?
Go to one of the Ubuntu download mirrors; choose one here
open the “feisty” folder and then look for a file called “MD5SUMS”.
For example you can check this one.
