Killed by memory during download


Hi, I`m trying to download a file using lynx on my remote server (PIII, 250MB). The file is one of the ODP(dmoz) RDF dump files and very large. Lynx dowloads 171MB and then starts reading. When it comes to about 400MB the process gets killed and all goes to waste.
I was checking resources on another console and it says lynx was using 95% and I`m not using the server other things yet so it`s a simple problem. Is there a simple solution to this? Can I cap memory? Is lynx packaging and then substracting automatically, how can I prevent this?
Thanks

Try using wget to download the file and then view it locally:

wget http://servername/path/to/file/filename.rdf

I'm assuming that you're getting the file from a web server since you're using lynx to download the file.
