Download timeout in terminal?

Post#1 by Bogdan » 05 Jan 2013, 21:43

I'm using mobile broadband internet and my connection speed is really low sometimes. So when i'm trying to download package via terminal command downloading starts and then freezes somewhere in progress. I think I have a limited time to download package or i got kicked. Can this be solved somehow or it is just system issue?
Note that this is not happen once so i should just try again, this happens always and always stops for multiple files.

Have you tried to ping a remote computer/server? If yes, what was the result? I wouldn't suggest to download a big through 3G/EDGE modem.

A list of IPs you can ping:

Code: Select all

a.root-servers.net
b.root-servers.net
c.root-servers.net
d.root-servers.net

@Bogdan

try

Code: Select all

wget -c file
so wget will resume downloading once net is available again.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Yeah i know 3G modem sucks, but i'm constantly on the move, that's the main reason i use portable OS and 3G modem, perhaps the best solution is that i install everything next time i get to stable wired network and then just use prepared system.

You may have some packets lost or broken. I don't think wget detects this.

i solved this, i'm downloading packs manually via browser. i just use "slackyd -g <pack>" without forcing download just to see the exact name of the package and then i search for the same package on slackware repository via browser.
