I tried using jigido to download Debian Lenny a few weeks back. It

from memory here, so might be off on the wordings). Then I tried
jigido-lite from cmd line and it worked just fine. best downloading
experience ever if you ask me. ^_^

  the only annoyance is when jigdo latches onto a reeeeeeallllly slow
server, like the u of calgary at the moment for me, which had decided
it's going to download rpms at about 4K/s.  argh.  time for a second


AFAIR jigido-lite asked for my source. As an odd coincidence the Debian mirrors in Canada are slow too. So I had to choose another mirror. But after that, it was silk smooth even on my intermittent wifi. :)


Open source is the future. It sets us free.
