gptfdisk on livedvd-12.0 ?
 
Hello,

My download of livedvd-12 is running really slow,
despite trying dozens of mirrors (mirrorselect produced
poor suggestions).... currently.

So, I am trying to find out if gptfdisk is on the latest
livedvd or SystemrescueCD. I cannot find the software listing for the
livedvd-12. Here is a gentoo page that lists the software
(packages) included on livedvd-10 [1]

Any suggestions are most welcome. (my)

tia,
James

I have nothing but good experience with JAIST mirror. It's wickedly fast.


The address is http://ftp.jaist.ac.jp/pub


(no, that's not a typo. Use HTTP to access its FTP servers. Mucho faster for unknown reasons.)


Of course, YMMV.


Rgds,

I suggest using bittorrent, it always achieves the best results for me
for downloading linux ISOs. I have a 100mbit internet connection here
and downloaded the gentoo livedvd in just 5 minutes.

I just mounted the gentoo livedvd ISO and don't see gdisk anywhere on
it. Don't know about system rescue CD.

I happen to be booted into a Parted Magic disc right now on another
machine I'm working on, and it DOES contain gdisk. FYI. :)
