When I run the following command with wget (wget-1.9.1-5) from fedora core 2, it does not exclude the updates/2/i386/debug directory, probably the SRPMS directory as well, but I kill it first.
$ wget --verbose --limit-rate=7k -t7 -w7 --random-wait -E -k -K -nH --cut-dirs=2 -x -np -m -X */i386/debug/,*/i386/SRPMS/ -a /tmp/fedoraN.log ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/fedora/core/updates/2/i386
Note that the wget binary from wget-1.8.2-15.3 (fedora core 1) when run in fedora core 2 works fine.
I tried a bug report to fedora, but their bugzilla seemed broken (I did search, but got no relevant hits). Can anyone duplicate this problem?
