ISO Download Issues?

Is anyone else having issues downloading the 11.2 DVD ISO from within the U.S.? Regardless of what mirror I choose, the 4.x Gb ISO is coming down as a 384+ Mb file. The checksum is incorrect, and it’s non-installable. I’ve noticed it since yesterday afternoon. I am going through a network proxy, and I’m trying to see if the problem is related to the proxy.

No issues that I’m aware of
here is a url to check
Index of /distribution/11.2/iso

Are you downloading using Windoze? Someone told me about something similar to this. He was downloading a big file using Windoze and it was not downloading the full file. I suggested to him to try with Linux and he got it.

Possibly you have a deficient download client that’s seeing a 4GB+384MB file as a 384MB file, i.e. 32-bit wraparound.

I have never had any trouble in the US with windows.

You using IE 32bit. Seems there is a 4gig limit (32bit) size of the file. Try another browser.

Strange stuff. It’s the proxy. If I use the proxy I see:

rgoddard@rgoddard-laptop:~/Isos/OpenSuSE_11$ wget
–2010-02-05 15:29:58--
Connecting to||:80… connected.
Proxy request sent, awaiting response… 200 OK
Length: 357984256 (341M) [application/x-iso9660-image]
Saving to: `openSUSE-11.2-DVD-x86_64.iso’

If I bypass the proxy I see:

rgoddard@rgoddard-laptop:~$ wget
–2010-02-05 15:33:10--
Connecting to||:80… connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response… 200 OK
Length: 4652951552 (4.3G) [application/x-iso9660-image]
Saving to: `openSUSE-11.2-DVD-x86_64.iso’

So, it’s definitely the proxy. I’ll have to chat with our network management team to see what’s up.

Yes, looks like a 32-bit file size limitation in the proxy. You’ll want to bypass the proxy anyway, proxies don’t usually cache files that big because of the low benefit ratio.

This is interesting - looks like the equivalent of Y2K :wink:

the same warning comes in windows internet explorer warns it cannot download larger than 4Gb file.
