DVD image download issue Opera, Konqueror, and Firefox/iceweasel
 
i've been trying to download the DVD images from

http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/4.0_r2/i386/iso-dvd/

every attempt had the images giving me an error on the
download after aproximately 24% completion (DVD 1
errors at 24% every time, other images are within a
percentage or two), resuming the download has only
given me an image which does not match the md5 sum.
Downloads attempted through Opera, Konqueror, and
Firefox/iceweasel all on a 5MB cable connection. i
can't wget the images due to a space issue on my end.
need them to go do an install on a computer w/o a good
connection.

anyway i was able to get all the cd iso's to download
just fine (and all at one time) so it doesn't seem to
be a bandwidth issue, and i am finding nothing on
google (though i may have missed it skimming through)

Maybe you could use bittorrent?

that would be possible, but many isp now make it hard
to download large torrent files (in a supposed attempt
to stop movie piracy) so torrent is out, and i admit i
did not check all the mirrors, though stopping at the
same spot is certianly odd

I don't understand how you could have space on a box to download with a
browser and not with wget. However, have you tried rsync?

Doug.

Hmm, that's weird. Exactly how much (in bytes) can you download before
the download stops? Is it consistent every time?

24% of 4.4Gb is pretty close to 1Gb. Are you sure there's not something
preventing you creating files over 1GB (e.g. ulimit). Or could your ISP be
blocking "large" downloads?

I'm not sure I understood about the "wget" problem - would you mind
clarifying it, please?

Thanks,
Paul

Have you tried:

1. rsync from an rsync mirror?

2. Resume the download with ftp but then "polish" the file
with rsync from an rsync mirror to correct any difficulties?

3. try creating a file with dd that is over 1 GB so you know that
you can locally.

I'm on dialup and can't tie up the phone long enough for CD images (a
few days) so end up with many breaks. I use wget with either ftp or
http and often have an MD5 failure. For this reason, I have switched to
straight rsync whenever possible.

Once, when there was no rsync server for the image I was getting, I
downloaded three defective images and used that gnu tool (I forget the
name of the package) that used a best-two-out-of-three approach for each
block to create the correct file.

Given the error detection at each layer (modem, ppp, IP, ftp), I don't
understand why I end up with a corrupted file, but I do.

Doug.
