I'm not sure.. The latest version of bittorrent (according to the
homepage) , allocates space when it is needed , instead of allocating
all the space when starting the download. This can now lead to high
fragmentation (as any file changing size can be fragmented)...

The bad chunks are simply discarded and the download continues. These chunks are then downloaded from other sources and this is repeated untill you get the full file , with the correct checksum... It's the same idea behind the protocol used in xmule/amule/emule/edonkey. Download each part , check it and download from someone else if it is not valid.

So the space allocation was setting aside a certain number of gigabytes
(mbytes or whatever) in bittorrent for the transfer. Whaver bytes were
retrieved were placed into the set aside space in the location that the
final ISO image would be located on the media used for receiving the
image. This resulting in a less fragmented transfer. Now it is
dynamically located and might throw the retrieved bytes wherever the
next available media spot is.

I was thinking along the lines of a fresh partition and pointing
bittorrent to the specified newly created partition. (misunderstood
allocating space ahead of time.)

Don't joke about something like that.  Microsoft actually has a

Linux...

Why do you have to get offensive and personal? I've been happily
involved in every "Red Hat" test release since the public beta for RHL8.
I am NOT WHINING. I've reported a number of bugs for the three FC2
test releases to bugzilla and have put up with whatever problems testing
has caused. I am simply concerned with the people who have not been
testers who now will be bitten by this problem when they do a fresh
install of FC2 on a dual boot system having windows XP, and the reviews
that will point this out.


Looking back on this thread, you have been a constant complainer about
everyone who has the opinion that this is an issue that needs serious
attention.

Why are you so vitriolic about this issue?

Not to excuse excessive vitriol, but as I said in another post, I think it's
a predictable response due to the subject line and general tone of the
original message. The complaint should be "this bug ought to get fixed", not
"FC2 shouldn't be released until my problems are solved". Whether or not it
really should be released is a moot point -- it's already out the door. So,
that sets the tone for argument -- whether that was the intent or not.

Frankly, I find statements about how bad this is going to look and laying
the blame at the feet of Fedora rather offensive.   Go complain to
Microsoft who charged you money for the privilege of not supporting
dual boot with Linux.

The thing that is most offensive is when people say... "ohhh this looks so bad"
like that's supposed to inspire fear in the developers who will then rush in with
a fix. Trying to make people feel bad about how FC2 "will look" in the eyes of
somebody is pathetic. Fedora doesn't owe you or them anything.


People who report bugs DON'T get flamed. People who make statements
about how horrible the world is because of the FREE software they're running, DO.


Instead of saying things about how bad this is going to _look_ you could have spent
some time installing other versions of Grub to figure out when the problem
was introduced. Then you could have HELPED the developer solve the problem
faster.

Then you don't have the latest/correct version. Theres an Azureus out

Has no simply tried this?

For Windows XP, boot from the install CD and enter the Recovery Console.
Then issue the command:
Code:
bootcfg /rebuild


This fixes the bootloader for windows xp. But I do not know if it will work in this situation. I cannot test this as I do not have this problem.

No, this is when having bittorrent read teh .torrent file, determine the
final size of the download, then dd if=/dev/zero of=filename
bs=<file_size>. Then as the pieces arrive they get written to the
correct position within the already existing file, resulting in almost
no fragmentation.

Pieces with bad hashes are discarded, I believe they never make it to
the disk. Most clients I have seen will let you know about it, but
continue as if nothing happened.

You should give it a try at least once. I recommend you wait for the
official bittorrents from Duke University, or from Univerzita Karlova,
don't try suprnova.org as that one really sounds fishy to me, especially
since they list the DVD iso size at just over 2Gig, and by VPNing into
work I see a 4Gig DVD iso.

The 2Gig size sounds to me like a DVD image made by my FedoraSync.sh
script, which means no SRPMS. If that's all it is, well it's not
official but not harmful. But I can't tell that for sure.

Yes, that is the default. But defaults can often be changed.

Did you read that article? It sounded unusually Linux friendly for a
Microsoft article, once you get past the title. Right near the top it it
lets you know you don't *have* to completely get rid of Linux, and that
the two OS can peacefully co-exist. It even goes onto saying how Linux
"can recognize over 40 partition types including..."

Something is being very silly on my system. All I get is

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 412, in ?
  hardware_state.merge_into(xconfig)
NameError: name 'hardware_state' is not defined

Hi,

Now we've hit FC2, what do I need to bung into yum to ensure FC2 is kept
up to date?

Hello Greg,

You have a problem between the kernel "sg" driver and "cdrecord" (Cannot
open '/dev/sg*')

Take a look at:
http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-test-list/2004-May/msg01136.html

Best regards.

Francis

See this bug.  There is one duplicate right now as well.
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=119620

This is an interesting problem.. I had not noticed this until your
email.  The comment below (by Mike Harris) says it is necessary to
--reconfig due to changes in pyxf86config..
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=120950#c8

However, it seems that --reconfig doesn't work for some people.  Try
running s-c-d without the argument as Gene suggests here:
