A good download manager for linux


I used FDM (Free download Manager) in Windows. But while working on Linux i just cant find an equivalent. Can someone suggest me a good download manager.

1> I have used Kget , its not very feature rich.
2> Downloader of X wont compile , its giving errors.
3> FDM wont run on wine , may be it runs as a service.

Can someone help.

If on Linux, I will assume you use Firefox for browsing the net. And if you do there is an integrated download manager and accelerator for firefox that you install as add-on. It is called Download Them All (dta). You can find it in add ons section on mozilla website.

Of-course there is. In fact use Opera 10, which also has which also has a integrated download manager and bit-torrent client. But i need a separate download manager like IDM or FDM. Can you suggest any?

Thanks.

Then there is multiget. If you tell what distribution you are using and what errors you are getting while compilation, you could get better help.
multiget is available in the Ubuntu repositories.

I use a dial-up connection(very bad speed) at my home. For downloads and resolving dependencies I use the connection available in my college and bring the back files to my place. So yum is not a viable option.

One more thing, could you pls tell me how to recursively search for all dependencies so that i can resolve them at a time.

YUM should be able to give you the list of dependencies for a package.
Use deplist option. man yum for more information.

Yes this is what I guess from the man page. Anyhow, yum does the dependency resolution. So even if you do yum install, it will tell if the dependency checking has been and if there are any dependencies it will show.

If you plan to do p2p, mldonkey can do *everything*, including regular downloads and ftp.
