Thread: aria2c will not exit after sucessful download

    Default aria2c will not exit after sucessful download

    I am using the below aria2c command in ubuntu 14.04 to call an API that downloads a file to a directory. Though the process completes and I get "download complete"... aria2c does not exit to the command line, I have to hit enter to get the command line. I am not sure what is wrong. Thank you .

    Code:
    aria2c -x 4 -c -d /home/cmccabe/s5_files/plan --seed-time=0 --use-head=true --http-user "<user>" --http-passwd <password> http://xxx.xx.xxx.xxx/yy/yyy/yyyyy/?format=json

    Normally, "aria2c" works for me (in opensuse).

    However, I once used it to download a fedora iso. And it seems that it used the torrent option. After downloading, it kept running until it had uploaded the same amount of data. I presume that I could have used CTRL-C to break out.

    It's been a while since I did that. But I'm pretty sure that it told me why it was continuing.

    These days, if I know I will be using a torrent, then I use "ktorrent" for the download.

    I hope you are aware of the fact that these here are the openSUSE forums. While it may be true that some of the people here have once used Ubuntu, still use it beside openSUSE, or even multi boot openSUSE with Ubuntu, I still assume that you will find much more experienced Ubuntu users in the Ubuntu forums.
