    Question where's the link???

    I already try to download openSuSE 11 from the site (Software.openSUSE.org), I don't remember the link that first time I download, but my download manager say the link is broken, second time I try to download the site give me this link : http://opensuse.cbn.net.id/distribut...0-DVD-i386.iso but after I download about 57%, my download manager say this link is broken. now I try to download from this link : http://opensuse.cbn.net.id/distribut...0-DVD-i386.iso (that site give to me). I hope this link is not broken again. My download speed is about 80kbps, and I need about 16 hour to download. Is anyone know that link never broken, at least for 1 day. Please tell me, I want to try this openSuSE new version....
    Thanks....... (sorry for my english)

    bafo ah,

    Looks like you're trying the download off a mirror.Try downloading
    directly from opensuse.org instaed. Just browse to software.opensuse.org
    and make your selections. You go for either http/ftp or Bittorent.

    Good luck

    The 'trick' is to make sure that your chosen download manager can RESUME
    a broken download from where it left off, so you don't need to worry about
    it if/when the link breaks (which they often do, during a 16-hour download).

    If you're comfortable at the command line, use 'wget -c ' command, which
    will resume from point of interruption. So, just put the beginning of the cmd
    as I've shown it on the cmd line. Then in another window RIGHT-click on the
    download url and choose 'copy link location' and PASTE that onto the end
    of the 'wget -c ' command (leave a space after the '-c', before pasting).

    [You can TEST that it is resuming where it left off, by hitting 'CTRL-C' to
    stop the download after a couple of minutes, then recall the cmd with
    up-arrow key and re-execute it again, and download will resume.]

    As always, when it all done, be sure to validate the final downloaded ISO-file using
    MD5SUM to make sure you have a valid capture.

    [Personally, I favor downloading just the appropriate LiveCD, since those
    only take about 2 hours at DSL-speeds, rather than the 16 hours you mention
    for the DVD.]

    Cheers...

    Dave
