    Question Downloader for download openSUSE11 DVD .iso

    Hi,

    I'm waiting the release of openSUSE 11, I will want to download the DVD .iso.

    What downloader program for linux do you recomend me to manage this kind of large files?

    I won't want a crash in the middle of the download.

    Thanks.

    I always just use Firefox, but you could try KGet if on KDE, and something if you're on GNOME. I actually don't know what GNOME's download manager is. Ironically, I use GNOME, not KDE.

    If you knowingly have an unreliable connection you may have better luck
    with a torrent. I finished download the x86_64 DVD this morning and it
    matches the md5sums of what I have here otherwise so it seems those are
    valid. You'll probably get poorer download times that way but it only
    took me a day before there were even that many seeds.

    If your connection is fine I'd just go with Firefox or whatever your
    favorite browser is that can handle >4GB files.

    Good luck.

    Hello !
    I suggest you tu use the torrent: ktorrent, or deluge, or whatever software you use check regularly the integrity of the files you download !
    Plus, it save some bandwidth from servers

    Bye

    Probable, yes. Azureus shows me a huge circle of people downloading and
    I'm pushing 300 KB/s most of the time. I would encourage any
    downloading this way to leave the client able to upload for a day or
    two. I typically try to get a share ratio of 10 before removing it and
    especially where it is barely released.... the more helpers the better.

    Good luck.

    for now I would prefer not to download by torrent, but when I finish downloading by ftp I will public my .iso in the torrent for a couple of days.

    rgds.

    I just ended up using wget -c on the console...simple and reliable.
