Hello back,

I have put it for downloading here again, I'll check if I am facing the same problem too. Meanwhile you can try and see what happens from a different mirror. Open that link in a browser and select a different mirror.

I tried from both the links and they are working fine here. See what happens from a different mirror. Also check whether it is happening only with GParted or other softwares too, but try it with wget -c command only, to know exactly what's happening.
P.S.
SMS language is not permitted on this official forum. Kindly take care to *(spell your words out)

and I saw your comment on my blog named "Addiction" today, the last line made me laugh

OK I hate to admit it, but I am somewhat floundering here. You suggested that I try a bowser rather than a Terminal. To use such I found I had to remove the wget -c command, (My browser is Mozilla.) So now are you telling me to go back to the terminal, or is there some way I can use the command with the browser?
Sorry about this but I don't know how to change mirrors, so I Googled for alternative mirror names, picked one in Indonesia and tried to replace the mirror name at the end of your line but the paste would not work. When I finish here I will go straight to the terminal.
Next you mentioned two links - you have lost me there
? What two links. Perhaps I am in over my ancient head here

Regarding the SMS language - no problem.

Glad I can still make someone laugh

Bye and thanks again for all your help

Step 1: This link gives all mirrors of GParted : http://sourceforge.net/settings/mirr...ve-0.6.4-1.iso

Step 2: Select some mirror e.g: AARNet (Brisbane, Australia, AU), from that page and click on Use this mirror button at the bottom of that page.

Step 3: Step 2 will lead you to this page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/gpar..._mirror=aarnet
If this page starts automatic download, click cancel, since we'll be downloading from the terminal not the browser.

Step 4: Copy the website address from the Address bar of the link shown in step 3 and paste that in the terminal with the wget -c command:

For pasting on terminal after you have copied the text, press shift with insert.
Code:
wget -c http://sourceforge.net/projects/gparted/files/gparted-live-stable/0.6.4-1/gparted-live-0.6.4-1.iso/download?use_mirror=aarnet
I tried all this on my computer, it is working flawlessly.
Similarly you can try it from different mirrors and see if that helps you.

Also check if this problem is occurring only with GParted or when you download other softwares, they also get stuck in the middle !

Please forgive me since I am not a native English speaker. I seriously did not know that *kindly* was a rude word.

and when you say "Bye" at the end of the post, I read it as if you are quitting the thread, if that is the case then please let me know so that I do not post here further.

I have edited that section out for it has only confused you. "kindly"is not a rude word - but the formation of the phrase makes it appear to be - er - well sort of bossy. Forgive me for even bringing that up. You are doing an extremely good job and you should be getting accolades and not criticism from this pedantic old man. No I am not quitting the thread and you are right, "bye" can send a message of "The End". I think here in this country it is used in the sense of "see you later" which (although I wont actually see you) is what I meant.

And thank you for your wonderful patience in providing me with step by step instructions. Anisha, I have tried you to the end but you are still here offering friendly and helpful advise. For this I am truly grateful

regards - Des

PS I'll let you know tomorrow (in Australia) how things went

You should not have removed that English lessons you gave me, I loved reading that. How would I have known otherwise that the sentence beginning with "kindly" was sort of "bossy" ?

I've done a little Google ing for you Hope you find this interesting

http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/.../t-373117.html

Search the site for the word "bossy" if you don't want to read it, Although I have read 3 parts o it and found it interesting.

By the way is there somewhere else that this interesting trivia should be sent to, rather than this thread? Perhaps you should start a blog on Indian English. I just don't want to be breaking any rules Also If you want me to I can send a memory copy of the "English lesson" - but where should I send it? is it OK here? It will only be what I remember of it - Des

Where did you dig up that *very* interesting article ? All those statements w.r.t word "kindly" are true. In India we use those statements very frequently and no one ever pointed out that it is not correct/polite. That article was really amusing.

You are free to send it to me through a private message. Click on my profile and then click on Contact Info tab. There you can either attach a text file or insert the text straight way.

Thanks.

Had a busy day, but the good news is the program finished loading - yet I am suspicious that it has bypassed some of the download where it stalled. Do you know what files I should have and (Embarrassed) where I should find them. I have done a search and 6 files turned up - three are message files, one is the icon, one says its on my desktop (but it's not) and one is the raw CD Image claiming to be 27.4 MB in size. Which is the cause of my suspicion as the download was nearly 130 MB. I haven't used your last suggestion yet, thought I'd run this by you 1st,
Des

Name of the software you downloaded is gparted-live-0.6.3-3.iso
If you opened the terminal and straightaway typed the wget -c command for downloading it, then your file will be in your home folder.

Open terminal and type this and show the exact output here:
Code:
ls | grep gparted

Well I have done this but cannot see a Contact Info tab, I have searched the site for it ????

However I noticed with some joy that you have accepted my friend request. And also I read your "Amusing....." blog with a great deal of pity for the newbie, who unfortunately had a terrible grasp of English (read her/his words), and I am quite sure he/she did not understand at all the instructions given, and that is why she/he didn't comply or answer questions because she couldn't. Do you agree??

Edit #2:- AHA I have found the elusive tag it was hidin behind the famous arrows

No that's a mistake - I found the tag in my own profile (have been updating) but not in Your Profile
