Hey guys, here comes an update:
Linuxtracker went down about a week ago just when the FullMonty (despite of its size!) made it with 840 completed downloads into the top 3 most downloaded PCLinuxOS torrents
after KDE (1st place) and Gnome (2nd)!!! Wow, thank you all soo much for seeding!
Linuxtracker is now back alive and to see their website you first have to delete the cookies in your browser
, else you will only get the famous It works
website. They have lost their entire user and torrent database, meaning if you were registered then you need to re-register and all old torrents are dead => I have setup a new torrent for the FullMonty 2011.01. Here is what you could do:
1) Delete your existing FullMonty torrent-file
(NOT the FullMonty data!!!) as the old torrent-file won't work anymore. Do not change anything with the FullMonty data (directory with 3 files) already on your PC
2) download the new FullMonty torrent-file
3) you do not need to re-download the FullMonty:
open the new torrent with your torrent-application (ktorrent) and as download location on your PC select the parent-directory of the existing FullMonty directory on your PC. Then ktorrent will realize that the data is already downloaded in the FullMonty-directory on your PC, ktorrent will verify the existing data against the new torrent (takes 2 mins) and then start seeding.
Hope this works, if not let me know what was wrong and how it got fixed.
Thanks again for seeding and have a nice day!
