Total time: 2 hours, 10 minutes.
I'm gonna wait until tomorrow to install it though. Also, in case you're curious, I used this mirror:
It's pretty fast; I got download speeds of 340 - 370 kb/s.

Thats pretty decent speed. I have enjoyed FC2 (although haven't had it long) Enjoy it.

i envy your 340 - 370 kb /s
mine is moving like a tortoise 9 - 11 kb/s

20th May 2004, 01:27 PM
Wow, mine was 1 1/2 hours per iso (for the first 3) don't know how long the 4th took.
20th May 2004, 01:34 PM

And the rescue cd was 3 minutes.
20th May 2004, 03:38 PM
I've only just gotten it.
20th May 2004, 03:59 PM
btw, what's the rescue cd for? isn't rescue mode available in cd 1
6 more hours before i finish my 3rd iso 15kb/s :(

The rescue CD is just an emergency boot disk to help you recover your system.
I'm in FC2 now - i can't believe the speed increase from the 2.6 kernel!

I am just now reinstalling it. Kinda messed it up the first time. I am getting ready to turn this machine into a server.

I'm posting from FC2 now - it's great! I love the new GNOME, except the new style for Nautilus, yuck. I'm also using Epiphany, always wanted to try it, it's pretty good.

We always like to hear success stories.

yay! finally finish downloading fc2 :)

I downloaded all the iso's at once on Wednesday on a bittorrent and it only took 2 or so hours.
23rd May 2004, 04:55 PM
Is it easier to upgrade just by downloading the iso's again or using yum? I havent upgraded yet, thats why im wondering. Iso's would be good back up, but whats the best (in other words less painful) way?
