Mandriva 2008 free - RPMs BitTorrent


Hi,
I am trying to do urpmi.addmedia from ftp://gd.tuwien.ac but get:

/bin/mv: can't move '/var/cache/urpmi/partial/hdlist.cz to '/var/lib/urpmi/hdlist.official/2008.0/i586/media/main/release/bittorent-gui-5.0.9-1mdv2008.0.noarch.rpm.cz' no file or directory with this name
sh: /var/lib/urpmi/synthesis.hdlist.official/2008.0/i586/media/release/bittorrent-gui-5.0.9-1mdv2008.0.noarch.rpm.cz: no file or directory with this name

at the end and nothing has been installed. It looks like something I can't do anything about. Any proposals?
best regards

I just checked ftp://gd.tuwien.ac using Firefox www browser.

There are no publicly accessible files shown.

Hence the no file or directory error.

Regards

Chris

Hi Chris,
THat does'nt sound quite right. The whole command urpmi.addmedia is picked from Mandriva Club and ftp://gd.tuwien.ac is a mirror site recommended by the club. And the program runs for about 20 minutes, so it must have accepted the command - I would think.

Checked again.
If I put "ftp://gd.tuwien.ac" into Firefox
the site responds with HTML access to their ftp server.
No files or directories are displayed.

It is possible that public access to files on their FTP server using an HTML Browser (in my case Firefox) are being deliberately blocked; and they are making them accessible from bit torrent only.

Hmmm.

Try monitoring the network traffic on your external network connection while you attempt the download using your torrent client to see if any data is being downloaded. It sounds like you connect ok, it accepts the request for the download, but for some reason it stalls.

Have you tried another torrent mirror ?

Regards

Chris

Hi Chris,
I tried with both ftp and http. The router indicates that data are being transfered, but today it did'nt run to the end. It stops with tranfer rate 0 and time-to-go going up.
An additional worry: Has it left some data in there?
The Mandriva Club only gives this site for RPMs BitTorrent.
I think I should now ask Mandriva Club for advice - they should know.
regards

Hi Chris,
I found another place to download from:
bittorrent-5.0.9-1mdv2008.0.src.rpm
That went well, but I dont know what I got and I can't find any trace of it in MCC.
I suppose that there must be something somewhere and that I will find it eventually.

Thanks very much for your help.
regards
torben
