You need:
ftp://mirrors.mathematik.uni-bielefe...v.1.noarch.rpm
ftp://mirrors.mathematik.uni-bielefe...v.1.noarch.rpm

I don't use it, but I assume it does the same thing on any OS platform. www.bittorrent.com

Hello Suse2166,

I found a great Torrent downloader http://azureus.sourceforge.net , Azureus is eazy to install on a Linux computer and works great. I get a much better performance then Bitorrent.

error message says:

/pub/suse/../.../,,.......... etc..

OK, click on the link below and then get the two RPMs you need. It seems the direct link to the individual RPM does not work very well.

ftp://mirrors.mathematik.uni-bielefe...PMS.suser-gbv/

Mmm...OK, just go here:

ftp://mirrors.mathematik.uni-bielefeld.de/

and manually navigate into /pub/suse/apt/SuSE/9.2-i386/RPMS.suser-gbv/.

Great Googa Mooga! What's going on here? OK, try this one:

ftp://ftp.gwdg.de

and navigate to:

/pub/linux/suse/apt/SuSE/9.2-i386/RPMS.suser-gbv/

I don't know what else to try. The two Bittorrent files are the 4th and 5th files down in the list. What web browser are you using? Maybe try using the command line or the GUI/program gFTP to download the files. At the command line, type:

# ftp ftp.gwdg.de

Type in the answers to user name (anonymous) and a password (your e-mail address). Then type:

# cd /pub/linux/suse/apt/SuSE/9.2-i386/RPMS.suser-gbv/
# prompt
# binary
# lcd /place/where/you/want/the/files/to/be/downloaded/to/
# mget bittorrent-*

When finished, type:

# bye

This should work. I just tried this from the command line on a Windows XP machine.
