cant download from web but can surf just fine


Hello. I finally got my old computer to connect to the web. The basic distro im using (deli linux) only includes dillio which is a VERY minimalist browser (cant even have a homepage in this version :P) anyhow im tring to download another browser that supports java applets, etc. I was going to go with firefox (unless someone has other suggestions for a good browser that works on old machines) but whenever i download it from the web i just get a 0 kb file. I have tried to download something through commandline ftp as well and it doesnt download. It just sits there and then aborts. I can surf webpages just fine (if they dont use java or frames :/) so does anyone have any idea why i cant seem to download a file? I have plenty of hdd space so that isnt it Thanks for anyhelp

disclaimer: im very new to linux and im doing most of it from commandline so I'm confused 24/7 now lol

Try using wget:
wget -c http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.o...staller.tar.gz

i get an error when i do that

wget: error in loading shared libraries: libssl.so.0.9.7: cannot open shared object file: No such files or directory

looks like im missing a library of some sort? Im still kinda clueless on those though. does that message make any sense to you? Thanks a lot for the help

You probably need to install openssl:
http://www.openssl.org

Althought if you can't download anything and it isn't on your install cds then you may need to download it with another computer.

You could also try "curl" for downloading
