Posted by John on Nov. 13 2003,23:48Unfortunately, it looks like the iso on the ibiblio mirror is corrupted, the md5sum does not match. I am loading up a new iso now, but they usually take several days to transfer files over.
If anybody is willing to host the latest iso now, please contact me -- you will take the brunt of downloads being the one to do the initial hosting.

Posted by John on Nov. 14 2003,15:21For now, you can download the iso at < ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/Incoming >. I've downloaded it and ran an md5sum, it's good.
It will be moving over to the damnsmall section at ibiblio their' schedule. So make sure you download damnsmall-0.5_download_this_one.iso instead of damnsmall-0.5.iso.
If anyone is interested in why the iso is corrupted, it has to do with a bug I found in gftp. You can read about it here:

Posted by alien2thisworld on Nov. 19 2003,07:38Hi John,
This is Daniel Stickney from alien2thisworld.net, I was curious if you wanted me to add any other content to the DamnSmallLinux/ FTP directory besides v0.5 ... like a few previous versions, or dpkg, etc? If so, let me know.. otherwise from now on I'll just plan on keeping the latest 3 or so versions of DSL available there.
Posted by John on Nov. 20 2003,09:21Hi Daniel, it would be nice to have the dpkg available as well. Keeping the latest 3 sounds like a good approach. Thanks!

Posted by John on Nov. 28 2003,00:40Try to use an ftp program instead, MSIE in not very reliable when it comes to downloading large files.
