greets, linuxians.

jigdo is cool - while it can download all files need to create a distro,
it can also download only files not already on your pc (or cd or dvd...)
quite awesome!

anyone hear use jigdo to acquire new / upgraded distro's ?

I used it a few years ago to download a Debian iso but other than that, I have not really played with it.

Interesting little app --> http://atterer.org/jigdo

I don't have any use for it, though... not at this time, anyway.

I've used for a while, mostly to download Debian packages/isos.

Tweak it 'til it breaks, then learn how to fix it.

Of course, you could always just use rsync and accomplish the same thing.

Not exactly. jigdo can assemble a CD/DVD image by downloading it's component files. I've looked into it several times, but always end up just downloading a netinstall image for Debian and let it do the downloading of needed files during installation.

i'v also used the network install.

i now like jigdo because it will only download newly needed files.  
really handy if you already have a fairly recent disk
and only need to get the changed files!

Well you can use rsync to sync the directory that holds the ISO files online which would be the same or maybe I am missing something .
