Thread: First Post - Download Problems

    Default First Post - Download Problems

    Hi,
    This is my first post. OpenSUSE looks great.
    But 'looks' is the operative word here as I haven't even got to installation stage yet. I am having big problems just downloading.
    I tried a straight DL through Firefox first but it crashed about ten times so I moved it into JDownloader where I can re-start from the crash.
    The connection is forever crashing however - after about every two megabytes I have to 'resume'. I have been doing this for more than a day and am not even half way there. I must have restarted over a hundred times. Other Dls and my own Internet connection run fine.
    Is this normal?

    You are having trouble downloading the cd or the dvd?

    What Operating System are you using?
    What type of format is the disk partition where the download is being saved to?

    Have you considered bittorrent?

    The CD. My Pc will not burn DVDs.
    Kubuntu 9.04
    I think it's an ext2 format.
    I can't get the Kubuntu bittorrent to work.

    I know this is off post but I can't resist.
    I hail from Salford, UK but haven't been over there for 12 years. You live in a beautiful part of the world that I miss so much. My heart skipped a beat when I read 'the English Lakes'.

    Well, back on post.
    I am downloading from Florianopolis, Brazil.
    I am using ADSL. Downloads usually come in at around 26kps.

    Salford eh! Where all those Matchstick men are from

    I'm going to give you a link to try first, but I need to know - are you wanting kde or gnome and are you 32 bit or 64 bit?

    For example, I have had to 'resume' four times already since starting this thread five minutes ago.
    I have a rapidhsare DL running also and it is fine.
    Over the course of the last 24 hours, I have tried DLing OpenSUSE exclusively but it makes no difference.
    The Ubuntu DL page lists the Federal University here (UFSC) as the nearest server. Obviously OpenSUSE does not give the option to choose the server but maybe it is coming from there.

    You may have been redirected to a rather unreliable host (clicking on download.opensuse.org connects you with a local server which may or may not be adequate) of these images. I recommend to download it with a torrent client. You will connect with the http server anyway through that torrent client and keep the image correct with no chance of corruption.
