MAXI Downloads

The MAXI images are so large (65GB) that direct downloads and Bittorrent are no longer feasable. Debian only provides Jigdo files for downloading its Blu-ray and double sided Blu-ray images. So Copyleft also uses Jigdo for its even larger MAXI images.

What is jigdo?
Jigsaw Download. The Jigdo and template files are downloaded. Jigdo is then pointed at a Debian mirror and the required software packages downloaded into the template. As the jigdo and template files are about 1% of the total image they take up little room on a server. However, jigdo will have to download about 65GB of packages from a Debian mirror. The new image checksum is identical to the original.
Examples of suitable mirror sites are:-

Setting up Jigdo
Jigdo-lite will need to be installed and set up. Please NOTE that the Copyleft Jigdo file AND Jigdo template will have to be downloaded into the same directory.
