Would it be possible to make a delta file between this and the original 32bit Mepis-Roadblock iso file here: http://forum.mepiscommunity.org/viewtop ... 93#p295193 ?

For those that already have the earlier iso I think a delta file download would be quite a bit less than 1.3GB and you might not get in to as much trouble with the folks at dropbox.

Given on the amount that had to be changed, read edited removed/added within the original iso to make it work as it should , it would not be a good idea,
As for Dropbox, if someone else wants to provide a link for downloading pm me and I will provide another link so they can download it.

Have you tried to make a xdelta, you'd be surprised how well it works....

+1 for the delta. I really think it would come in at ~300-400 Mb, which is a huge bandwidth and time saving no matter how you crunch the numbers. You got nothing to lose by at the very least creating the delta to check for yourself
