    Fetching 4.0.2, will provide through mail to US Mirrors

    I have been waiting and looking for a mirror for a week now, but have only found one site with it (the first on the list), but it comes at a rate that would take 75-80 hours! It does not seem to be propagating in Germany either, for example to the fast mirror.

    I have decided to go for it, downloading from ftp://ftp.uni-kl.de/pub/linux/knoppix/. I should have it by late Sunday evening. I am about 10 hours in to it (550MB).

    If owners of US mirrors would private message me, I will snail-mail the first bunch a DVD I hope on Monday, worst case should be Tuesday. By Wednesday or Thursday there should be several sites in the US that have the english .iso. The authenticity and quality can be checked against the md5 from the source. This seems crazy, but...

    If there is something I don't know, like there is a problem with 4.0.2 and that is why it is not propagating, please let me know (I won't see your post until 6:00 EDT). I *think* I am not only helping myself but providing a service by distributing it.

    Thanks.

    I have canceled my slow download. Another post indicated that the kernel.org mirror has gotton it since I checked. It is coming at about 550KB/sec now!
