Strange behavior from wget

Strange behavior from wget

Post by Mark Adam » Tue, 13 Dec 2005 06:23:14



I've been trying to download a Linux distro on DVD iso. I've tried a
number of methods and all have failed.  Most notably wget, which is
fairly idiot proof.

The problem is that wget will only download 361,680,896 bytes and then
it just stops as if it were finished.  A log looks like this:
===============================

user.cz:21/2006/i586/Mandriva-Linux-Powerpack-2006-DVD.i586.iso

==========================

And that's it. I'm not seeing anything in the system log files and
attempting to resume the download with the "-c" option makes no difference.

If this is some misconfiguration or goof on my end, I'd like to know
about it.  If this is caused by a bad file on the mirror, I'd like to
know that as well.

I've scoured Google Web and Groups and I can't find anything like this.
  Can anyone help me with it?

Thanks.

We don't know on which side the problem is and since the download
is password protected, we can't check if we get the same problem.

Did you try another .iso download (ftp) from another host and the
problem persists?

I did successfully download the iso's for CD1 and CD2 of the distro from
the same host, same working directory that holds the DVD iso I want.
These iso's were approximately 695 MB in size.

Encouraged, I initiated another wget download of the DVD iso. It crapped
out again at 361,680,896 bytes.

So, what can we make of this? I am trying to connect to another mirror
to get the DVD iso, but it's not going well.

" As of 2004.11.13 the latest official version of  wget  cannot download
files of size more than 2Gb"

Why use wget for ftp download? Try using ftp og ncftp instead.

Because I wasn't succeeding with FTP or gFTP.  Haven't tried ncftp, but
none of the programs I tried would download the file.

That blurb from lpetrov.net surprises me.  It seems unfortunate.

Thanks for the tip Tomas.  I appreciate it.

1. wget: wget *keyword*.html?

Anyone know how I can invoke wget
to get all urls in, say, a home directory and all
subdirectories only, with a particular key word in
the file name?

Something like:

wget http://somewhere.com/~joe/*football*.html

where I'm looking for web pages with the word "football"
somewhere in them (i.e., somewhere in the web page FILE NAME).
In this instance I'd like to have retrieved pages such as
scores-football.html home_football.html footballquotes.html etc..

Thanks.
