just that s/he *is* a student, and since there are only 16 files in
that directory it is MUCH easier, rather than asking how, to just wget
the 16 one at a time by name (or easy copy paste file names into an
input file) and let'er rip..

you might note that i *did* provide a direction to go (over two hours
before the note you responded to) as had others before i asked a
second time if it was homework..

or are you saying that asking after helping is somehow unsupportive?


what other questions would you say we should not ask?

To copy and paste file names are not a good solution.
Making a script may be better to do that automatically.

curl --list-only http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/openSUSE-stable/repo/oss/suse/i586/
Taking filenames from this may be an option.
