Down loading Ubuntu 9.4 and missing 1%

Asked by Tove

I've tried down loading the 9.4 version about 8 times now and I keep getting the same error off the down load of missing 1% of the down load.
So I can't even make a disc to get started.

Use torrents instead:

MD5 Sum = 66fa77789c7b8ff63130e5d5a272d67b

MD5 Sum = cace6ea9dde8dc158174e345aabe3fae

Torrents add extra error checking over standard file transfer using TCP. I will also help to check the data but MD5 sum checks should still be done.

Have you tried downloading from a different mirror? Sometimes specific mirrors have issues further down the line.

Also, I agree with actionparsnip here: Using bittorrent, if your ISP allows it (please yell at them for me if they don't), is the best way to go. Torrents are faster; they can be paused and resumed easily so you don't need to do it all at once; and they take stress off of web servers so that it costs less to distribute stuff. (Which is great for Ubuntu as a whole).
How it works is everyone downloads at full speed from many sources, and while downloading you also upload chunks of that same file. This way, everybody contributes to keeping that file available for others to download at high speed. (Don't worry, it's completely secure; the only thing being uploaded is that file you are downloading, and nobody has access to your system).

If you are already using Ubuntu, a good bittorrent client is Transmission. You can open that from the Applications menu, under Internet -> Transmission BitTorrent Client.
If you are using Mac OS X, Transmission is also a nice choice. The web site for the application is here:

If you are using Windows, check out µTorrent:
(Another choice, if for whatever reason that doesn't work, is Deluge:

Now, with one of these installed, all you need to do is download and open the file that actionparsnip has linked to and your shiny new torrent client will open to start downloading Ubuntu 9.04 :)
