Howto fix wget caused segfaults?


I did wget without enough space in the /home partition.
I got a segmentation fault.
I moved and deleted 2 files and had enough space.
I ran wget -c and still got a segmentation fault.
Why?
Can you please tell me what can I do to correct it?

Have you conisdered the possibility of faulty hardware?
Nothing in your logs suggests that this would be caused
by wget itself, but faulty RAM can make any old app (even
the most robust tools) segfault. That aside, knowing the
distro you're using, knowing which version of wget, and
whether it came with the distro or wgets origin would be
quite handy ...


Cheers,
Tink

Problem showed up Wget with Suse 9.3

Thanks Tink for your insight.
I was using the wget that came with the Suse 9.3 that was downloaded.
I finally got a Suse 10 download on another computer. I will probably try
to install it.
I learned that booting knoppix 3.9 or 4.0 and then doing wget on a
DVD is not a good idea. This wrote about 2.4 GB then gave a segfault
every time while using comcast. It seemed like a timer went off that
pulled down from about 500 K/s to 0 K/s then died a minute or two
later.
