Thread: downloading suse dvd, 4.3 gigs 3-4 times

  1. #1

    Default downloading suse dvd, 4.3 gigs 3-4 times

    I'v downloaded the new versions of suse many times. I average 3 to 4+ times before it's successful, bad downloads(bad checksum) or download stops for no reason. I'v used direct link and bittorrent. Bittorrent takes 2-3 times as long. So, I usually use direct link. I can do the download in about 6-8 hours. The first time, it stopped at 334 megs, using direct link. Using bittorrent, it took about 16 hours. I got a bad checksum. ARG!

    Is there a way I fix the file without downloading it again? Suse 10.4

    Thanks

    I guess you have a bad connection or so. Many people have no problems at all, which points imho to being the problem at your side.

    You do not describe which tools you used. Did allready try wget. I ask because wget can restart a download after a failure and that seems a good idea in your situation.

    Totally unnecessary to download again if you used bittorrent
    And torrents are as fast for me as direct.

    You didn't say if it was the .iso that failed the md5sum or the burned DVD?
    If the downloaded .iso was bad, simply force a re-check of the file in the torrent client, most clients do that anyway when the download is complete.

    There is no openSUSE 10.4. Assuming you meant 11.4, yes, there is.

    <http://en.opensuse.org/SDBownload_help#Repairing_a_download>

    Or...

    This command line guarantees a correct and fast download of the 64 bit version:

    > aria2c --check-integrity=true --summary-interval=300 http://download.opensuse.org/distrib...6_64.iso.meta4


    Now, if you start that command, let it create an empty
    "openSUSE-11.4-DVD-x86_64.iso" file, stop the command, then copy your bad
    iso file over the one aria2c created (with the name aria2c wants), then
    restart aria2c. It will discover the error and correct it.

    Obviously, if you want the 32 bit version, or another suse version, you
    have to change it as appropriate.

    I used Firefox: directlink, direct download. Bad checksums happens often as I stated.

    >Totally unnecessary to download again if you used bittorrent. And torrents are as fast for me as direct.

    Directlink stopped, not torrent. They are always really slow.

    >You didn't say if it was the .iso that failed the md5sum or the burned DVD?

    md5sum on the downloaded file.

    >If the downloaded .iso was bad, simply force a re-check of the file in the torrent client, most clients do that anyway when the download is complete.

    I use the standard torrent in firefox in suse 10.3 Don't know if it rechecks. I'v already deleted the ISO. I'll just start it again.

    >There is no openSUSE 10.4. Assuming you meant 11.4, yes, there is.

    Yes, 11.4 64bit It's a typo. I assume the aria2 mentioned in metalinks. It didn't have any info where to get the iso. So, I couldn't use it. How do use aria2 to download a new copy. Same command line?

    Code:
    aria2c --check-integrity=true --summary-interval=300 http://download.opensuse.org/distrib...6_64.iso.meta4

    Question Re: downloading suse dvd, 4.3 gigs 3-4 times

    What OS, version and download software are you to download? Possibly there's something running in the background that interferes with the download.

    For torrents, I use Transmission in OS 11.1 and 11.2: Transmission
    If you are using direct links http://downloadsite..... you could try using wget http://downloadsite...... instead.

    I also recommend that you use one of the mirrors instead of openSUSE: openSUSE:Mirrors - openSUSE
    My favorite is Kernel.org: mirrors.kernel.org
    Box 1: OpenSuse 11.1/Win7 | Linux 2.6.27 Gnome | AMD 64 X2 6000+ | nVidia 8600GT | 2GB RAM
    Box 2: OpenSuse 11.2 | Linux 2.6.31 Gnome | AMD 64 3000+ | ATI X800 Pro | 1GB RAM
    Box 3: Win7 Premium Home | Intel P4 3.0Gz | ATI AIW 2006 | 2GB RAM

    Not while using metalinks.

    What is the correct line to download with error checking.

    suse 11.4 64bit

    Torrents for me are always slow. 2-3 times as long is average. The best speed is direct link at about 6 hours.

    What's wget?

    You have network problems. Perhaps you are behind a proxy?
    Company/university network?
