I don’t know if this thread is for this category, but I am trying to download the Tumbleweed DVD for Intel x64 from here: http://download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/iso/openSUSE-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-Current.iso and I get only 70-100 KB/s for the last one hour or so. Am I doing something wrong is there a general issue?
You could at least explain how you are downloading.
Sorry I didn’t realize that was necessary.
Unfortunately, there are not many ways to download. The DVD is only available via HTTP and from one mirror. There is no torrent available or any other alternative way to download.
I am downloading using Google Chrome on a fully updated Arch Linux.
Does this help somehow?
In Unix/Linux there are in most cases several ways to do things. Even if they are unknown to you. You better tell what you are doing because a forum does not allow others to look over your shoulder.
You can e.g. use one of the many browsers available (as you now tell you do), but there is e.g. also wget. And maybe more I do not know about.
In general, precise information might trigger people in doing as you do to see if they can reproduce a problem. It might also trigger them to try alternatives to see if it is persistent. When information is lacking, they may ask for the obvious, but they may also turn away to more promising threads. Most people here are very helpful and will ask for more info, but they are also human and might avoid endless asking and asking.
Hey hcvv you are a little harsh here… I just asked a question. Aren’t these forums here just for this?
Am I obligated to know how to ask in the best possible way from my 1st post in the forums?
Anyway, at least your answer gave the idea to try wget.
I am getting decent speeds with wget 2MB/s but Chrome is still super slow… could this be some bug?
Do you have IPv6 available?
I ask, because my download speeds dropped when my ISP provided IPv6.
With IPv4, I download from a fast mirror in the USA. With IPv6, I am redirected to a slow mirror in Bangladesh or some other distant place. Some software (“mirrorbrain” or something) uses geo-location to select a mirror, and geo-location for IPv6 is terrible.
I normally download with “aria2c” so it doesn’t matter much. That software quickly finds faster mirrors.
This might not be your problem, but worth mentioning. And I think there is an open bug report on this.
No, I don’t have IPv6. I really don’t know what’s the issue.
At least, wget helped me download it now.
As well as the mirror list;
Or on the image, rpm etc if you click the ‘details’ link on the right it will show you torrent info and mirrors, eg;
I see (for my locale)

So from the first link (mirror list) I see my normal download locations are not synced yet since none are in the US… so would play the waiting game…
I normally use wget -c <some_iso_image>

When I tried an update of 42.2 software packages via YaST on that day,
several of the repos were unavailable so, yes, I guess there could have
been server problems. I’ve had no trouble since then, though.

I never saw this “downloadcontent” in the address “downloadcontent.opensuse.org” displayed above.
The usual address is “download.opensuse.org”.
You could as well use the address given by malcolmlewis “mirrors.opensuse.org” in his post, in order to get a list of mirrors in your region, which may speed up the download.
Don’t forget to check the checksum of your downloaded iso.
A very good idea would be to retrieve the checksum from download.opensuse.org, even if you downloaded the iso from somewhere else.
