SOLVED: is the sha-256 available somewhere else? dead link on d/l page

Sorry to bother you guys.  Just downloading the torrent, but cannot get the sha-256 for bl-Deuterium-i386+NonPAE_20170429.iso from download page

Message is "503 Service Temporarily Unavailable"

Probably someone has the sha's for all the downloads somewhere?  Thanks in advance!


[[BTW, I am replacing CrunchBang on a little eeepc which must be 7 years old.  Advice from http://www.linuxinternationals.org/forum/ to try this distro. ]]

Aw, the download connection limits hit you (only x connections to the /ddl endpoint from each IP are allowed). I increased the limit.

Thx! Yah that'd be it re connections. Got it going. Manual nuke of old partitions, non graphic install.  Measy 4 GB solid state HD, 8" screen, 8GB SD card for a /home partition. A hobbit sized computer. But old man eyes see it better than nonsmart phone.

I just finished installing Helium on my netbook with a 4GB SSD and am searching these older posts for hints on how to continue setting it up.

This doesn't give the exact model and there were lots of them.  Is it by any chance the ASUS 701?  I ask because of the .iso that was selected for the installation:

bl-Deuterium-i386+NonPAE_20170429.iso

There is a popular idea that a non-PAE iso is the only choice for these netbooks.  However, on this model, the regular helium-5-i386.hybrid.iso works just fine.

I have Hardinfo open right now, am looking at Devices -> Processor -> Capabilities and see this:

pae     Physical Address Extensions

I realize the OP is likely long-gone from the forum, but others will come across this post when searching for advice.  The PAE-vs-non-PAE question for these netbooks was controversial and unsettled, even ten years ago, with much mistaken advice being given.

In fact a PAE kernel will work fine with almost any hardware these days. However, PAE brings few benefits on very old machines, and there are some who claim better performance with non-PAE (search these forums).

Our CD-sized iso ships the non-PAE kernel because the few machines needing non-PAE will almost certainly need a CD to boot. Building both PAE and non-PAE CD versions seemed like too much work.

The welcome script will detect a CD install and offer to install a PAE kernel if the processor supports it.
