I tried it with "cd Downloads" and without it; the results are exactly the same, both stopped at 36,679,288

As I only have a mobile phone with not much credit left until the 14th, I will ring my provider on Monday when it's quiet and therefore I won't be asked to hold for quite so long. (yes I'm a cheapskate and wont renew my prepaid until the expiry date)

Was LQ having some trouble yesterday ? I could not log in at all, could not even get to the server

Thanks again for your huge effort here - you are an asset.

Kind regards - Des

You have windows vista why not download and burn cd from that environment?

I was asking about gparted ! When you reissued the wget -c command, from the same place where you had earlier issued it for gparted, did the command restart from where it had left ?

Thread title has been changed now, I had reported it and a Mod did the job.


Are you receiving the notification mails now ? Did you follow the Post number 36's screen shot ?

For attaching any file to the thread see the screenshot attached in post 36, there is a box titled Manage Attachments on the top of the circled area in that screenshot. Have a look there.

You can also control how many posts you want to display on a page, see this link: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...do=editoptions
Scroll down that page till you see the following attached screen.

How can I put this -er - it went back and tried to restart from the same place - but eventually it timed out - see screen shot (email).

To me it seemed uncanny that it stopped in exactly the same place - twice

Yes I had noticed he title now changed - thanks for that.

If you mean by "follow" Did I understand the codes - then - yes I found that very informative. If you mean did I follow your instructions - then No I did not, and I still do not get notification. Unless I have posted myself, then it tells me about my own post. But anyway I check here every time I come on line so it hasn't been important yet - but I will check that out and follow instructions soon.

There; I just went away and did that it is now set to give me "Instant Notification"

Hope you have had a nice weekend, I have, I've only just got home from visiting a friend in Hospital. Then I watched Formula 1, followed by MotoGT racing bikes, then I came here and found your posts.

Thanks for the info on attaching files, that may come in handy again.

I hope I have answered all your questions ok, please let me know if you have any more Q's or need clarification an any way.

I think it is your Provider who needs to give some clarifications now !

and for getting an Instant email notification for ALL threads, again follow this link : http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...do=editoptions

Look there for a title : Default Thread Subscription Mode.

Hi Eddy, That's a good thought except I have tried through Vista with the same result. Which makes me more suspicious of my provider

I have contacted ISP (Dodo Mobile Broadband). After 50 minutes on the phone it was decided that I should try another computer using the same modem. However there is quite a bit of information to be found and complaints about Dodo's time outs.

So what I'm going to do is take my laptop over to the library tomorrow (not open on Mondays) where they have free wireless broadband, and I'll try to download gparted there, I will be using the same computer but a different ISP.

Check this out http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/1149157

I can see a new provider coming up

Do you think that this post is still in the right place or should it be shifted from "Newbies" to "General" ?

IMO underlying operating system does not make any difference in proper download of a software. The only two things that make a difference are:
1. The tool which you are using for downloading.
2. The quality of service your provider is providing.

This thread can be shifted to Linux-Software and if you wish, click the Report button of the first post of this thread and ask the moderators to move this thread.

And I still think you should shift from Ubuntu to latest Mint-Fluxbox !

What does "IMO" stand for?

I am at the local Libray using their Wi-fi - It is Broadband but only runs at 50 to 60K/s. However it has started agin from 0%, and is downloading Linux Mint. Going to take another 3 hs at this speed - but it's doing it at last !!!

I couldn't start the gparted though; it came up ERROR 404. And you had sent me a few different code lines to try - so I tried them all. But no dice.

Would yo like me to try from the web page ,or would you rather send some moe code

In My Opinion (IMO)
Try for Gparted instead, the following link is still working here.

You mean this didn't work ?
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
It is working here for me.

Which codes did you try and for what ?

I tried all the codes that I could find on this thread for gparted, they all showed ERROR 404. But success is found wiht Mint, I am to finish loading the "Mint" file today (Wednesday) it still has another two hrs to go and they had to close for the night. So I'll do that (finish the download) and then I'll try this code you just sent me. I am sure it will work - it's just very slow. It has shown us though that the fault is with my ISP, and I am going to have to change. Once I am successful in downloading gparted, then this thread can be marked as solved

I have another thread in mind about Open Office Word and Hyper-links "How can you make a hyperlink to two things - but not do the second thing until the 1st one is finished. For example play two mp3 musc files, but obviously not at the same time. What think ye? How would you phrase the title, and what part of the forum would you place it?

Just thinking with gparted - I may need to removed all the old traces of gparted that are on this computer to avoid that error ? Your thoughts are?
