    Having trouble getting Debian CDs


    I went to Linuxiso.org and all of the mirrors didnt work. Is there another site similar to linuxiso.org. I went to the debian site, but its hard to get all 7 cds working from one mirror.

    I have been there but, all of the mirrors I went to had 14 iso's! I thought there were only 7 cds. So do I only download the first 7?

    You could always do a net install wich is one cd which has the base system and the rest of the system you grab via the package-manager apt-get. Though getting the 7 cd's should be fine, since the other 7 are just with packages iirc.

    There is an alternative you can use, if you download the net install CD ISO ( only 180mb, off the debian website then you can pinch the rest off the net with apt-get

    As far as I know you only need cd's 1-7 since mny are just packages you can easily apt-get
