Porteus Download Mirror Not Working (Solved)

Post#1 by teddybear » 21 Jan 2020, 06:07

I tried to download Porteus from the mirrors shown in main Porteus Download page, however, all the downloads will halt at 49% and 50% progress and will not download further. I tried all the mirrors, but all of them wont download more than 51%. (This include Porteus 5.0, 4.0 and 3.0..)

These are the mirrors I tried:
http://ftp.vim.org/ftp/os/Linux/distr/porteus/
http://ftp.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/porteus/
http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/porteus/
https://mirrors.dotsrc.org/porteus/
http://ftp.cc.uoc.gr/pub/linux/porteus/
http://www6.frugalware.org/mirrors/linux/porteus/
http://ftp.riken.jp/Linux/porteus/
http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/dl.porteus.org/
http://linux.rz.rub.de/porteus/

Is the mirror dead? Or is there other faster and better working link? I want to update my Porteus to the latest 5.0 version. Pls help.. Thanks..

Tried http://ftp.vim.org/ftp/os/Linux/distr/p ... x86_64.iso - downloaded to completion. Could someone else try and confirm?

Thanks.

I just downloaded the 5.0 rc1 cinnamon from the frugalware mirror. I think the problem is on your end teddybear.

5.0 is a work in progress, I recommend you use one of the 4.0 systems.
