None but the first of which I could do (if indeed I've done that)
for the life of me. But it's good to hear again that it does work.

Well, it has been taking me at least three days so far, and I'm
not (quite, I hope) done *yet*. But I have a partial result, maybe
something close to a real result.

This morning, about 24 hours from starting again on my #2
machine, jigdo-lite (invoked according to the Day Cookbook yesterday
morning) had stopped in the night, with the following message :


FINISHED --02:03:40--

Found 10 of the 50 files required by the

Aaargh - 40 files could not be downloaded. This should not
happen! Depending on the problem, it may help to retry downloading
the missing files.

However, if all the files downloaded without errors and you
still get this message, it means that the files changed on the
server, so the image cannot be generated.

Press Return to retry downloading the missing files.
Press Ctrl-C to abort. (If you re-run jigdo-lite later, it will
resume from here, the downloaded data is not lost if you press
Ctrl-C now.)

I dutifully pressed Return, and gave it a few minutes while I
caught up on these threads. Now it says :

(Incidentally, I *like* that "Aaargh" -- it's something I can
understand.)

Hitting Return yet again produced :

Found 1 of the 1 files required by the
template

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Finished!
The fact that you got this far is a strong indication that `Fedora-
Unity-20071218-8-i386-DVD.iso'
was generated correctly. I will perform an additional, final check,
which you can interrupt safely with Ctrl-C if you do not want to wait.

And it is cheerfully spinning numbers on the bottom line.

Meanwhile, the .iso.tmp file has already been renamed to
plain .iso. (It still shows a padlock, and I haven't tried to open it;
but Properties shows it belongs to root. So I should be able to chown it
and look in it.)

I trust you experts therefore predict that, if I burn it aright,
it will boot. So what will it install?? Alas! How do I tell?? I don't
have a machine running anything but F8 updated -- the hard way -- any
more ....

Wait a minute; wait a minute! Jigdo now says (after a blank line
below the passage about interrupting) :

OK: Checksums match, image is good!

Do I really have to get and use *three* *DVDs* just to install F8
now, instead of the one I used before?? Someone here seems to think so.

Or are they numbered sequentially by creation of later respins,
as I've been presuming? Id est, one need only get and burn the highest?
(I'll swear I saw three *numbered* DVDs, somewhere, in a list like the
one above, just yesterday. Now there's only one for i386, one for ppc,
and so on. But there were also 17 CDs. Has someone been renaming/
renumbering? Or am I even more confused than I know?)

Aaargh ...

You are taking into account that the file 6 is the i386 32-bit DVD
version, file 13 is the 64-bit DVD version, and file 21 is the Power PC
architecture DVD version? You pick the *one* for your processor, not
all of them.
