I just did an ctrl-c right now and reentered the previous command.

Then I did ls -l, now see the relevant results below:
Code:
-rw-r--r--  1 anisha users  10329500 2010-07-07 14:42 slackware-13.1-install-dvd.iso
-rw-r--r--  1 anisha users   3417860 2010-07-07 14:44 slackware-13.1-install-dvd.iso.1
What does this mean if two of them are there ? Does it mean it has started again from 0 ??

Post get is a reliable, firefox plugins are continually updated.

Yes!

Possibly, wget, kget, etc (get) should resume from what you have downloaded.

My other suggestion,
Quote:
Download Statusbar (0.9.6.8) Firefox plugins
May work with downthemall.

Did you use the "-c" option?
Code:
wget -c ftp://ftp.belnet.be/packages/slackware/slackware-13.0-iso/slackware-13.0-install-dvd.iso

edit: I tested the above command, it works.

No I did not use that Thanks for reminding !

I again canceled the previous command now.
Deleted the previous two incomplete slack ISOs.

Now I issued the command again with the -c option.
and to test it, I did Ctrl-c and then reentered the command,

Now I do not see two slack ISO like the previous ls-l command showed.

I think it means it is continuing from before now !!!

Many thanks to you and to all other posters of this thread for guiding me till now!

I don't think it makes any sense now for me to use that pathetic fancy DownThemAll tool again since wget is more powerful than it.

One year ago, I remember my brother downloading an ISO of Suse from some site on a Windows machine. It took 4 days.

On 4th day it showed 99% complete and then suddenly an error occurred saying "Unable to download file x, permission denied" and it was all over.

I am afraid it may happen again,
Any solutions for this kind of problem ? Is this related to the tool we use to download ?

Thanks,

I have heard some people saying such kind of downloads are better through bit-torrents !

No idea what are they and how that is more helpful than wget tool ?
