Unhappy cant wget CentOS ISO 3.7GB file


I tried to download CentOS ISO 3.7GB filesize to download with wget on the CentOS-5 OS with 2.6 kernel.

wget is not downloading the iso file of size 3.7GB.

On windows side, I used download manager. Although the iso size is 3.7GB, the download manager is showing its size as 1.99GB.


Please tell me how can I download the 3.7GB ISO file.

The link is:
Code:
http://mirrors.cmich.edu/centos/5.3/isos/i386/CentOS-5.3-i386-bin-DVD.iso
Thanks

Try another mirror. Also use wget -c to resume partially downloaded files, if it is a connection problem.

Hi,

This works (just tried, size is given as 3.7G):

Start your browser,
Goto http://mirrors.cmich.edu/centos/5.3/isos/i386/,
Right click on CentOS-5.3-i386-bin-DVD.iso -> save as.

Make sure you are not trying to save the file to a FAT file system.
