I'm not sure. This was 4.6.1-RC2, across a local 100mbps LAN. The FTP server is a few month old -CURRENT; FTP would disconnect itself after fetching the first few files, and then on retry, cpio would start complaining about checksum mismatches (though I could manually ftp the files around, or check them on the server, and the checksums matched). Also after the first disconnect, using another server (such as one of the 'official' mirrors) would get the same thing. Switched to NFS, and everything ran clean through. Interestingly, I tried an experiment of just using one of the official mirrors straight up, and it went just fine (through most of the 'bin' dist, after which I stopped it). I'm presuming it's just something strange on my -CURRENT box, which wouldn't be much surprise. It IS -CURRENT, after all. > So should I commit the code and let us tune what go on which floppy > later or should I just sit back and enjoy the ride? It wouldn't bother me overly much to have to go to a 3rd floppy. At least, not significantly more than it already does to have to use 2 floppies ;> -- Matthew Fuller (MF4839) | [EMAIL PROTECTED] Systems/Network Administrator | http://www.over-yonder.net/~fullermd/ "The only reason I'm burning my candle at both ends, is because I haven't figured out how to light the middle yet" To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
