we are experimenting with torrent hosting files so we can offer alternatives to google drive for users who want to download images.
files such as the LP windows image are quite large files and google drive is not always an ideal solution.
torrent hosting seems like a viable solution for this.

it would be helpful for anyone who has time to try downloading the following experimental torrent.

it contains all lattepanda drivers in a .rar archive and is only 307mb
please post your results, and if you are successful downloading please seed :)

if this method is a benefit, we can host other system images using this method.

thanks!

yeah you will need to open the .torrent file in a torrent client such as utorrent. this should then download .rar archive with files.

The torrent file is fine - but there are no seeds. So downloading doesn't work.

I guess they created the torrent and didn't even seed.
Torrent only works if someone seeds.

So far I haven't been able to download a single byte.

And I am pretty sure that there is no error on my end since I can download other stuff via torrent just fine.
