easy question on downloading files > 2gig


What linux client is anyone using to download files exceeding the 2gig limit. I've tried wget, curl, firefox and kget, all with no luck.

This shouldn't be this hard!

By the way, I'm running RH WS 3.0 today.

Cheers,
Pete

The actual version of wget supports files greater than 2gb.

which is your file system? I think your problem is in it, you've reached the file size limit.

Greetings.

Using ext3 filesystem, and have many files > the 2gig limit.

$ wget --version
GNU Wget 1.8.2

I'm retesting the kget. I have a feeling that it may be the ftp servers limit. It read from the browser as:

Mandrakelinux-10.1-Official-Download-DVD.i586.iso 2124868 KB 12/05/2004 10:21:00 PM

But when I downloaded via wget, I only got to 2097150K as seen by wget-log:
2097050K .......... .......... .......... .......... ..........-101% 431.03 KB/s
2097100K .......... .......... .......... .......... ..........-101% 280.90 KB/s
2097150K .

I actually got Kget to complete the download. It stopped at 99%, but was actually finished. I did my md5sum to verify and everything was good. I still didnt get wget (which i prefer to use ) to work.

cheers,
Pete
