I've been using Smart package manager for some time and I've noticed it seems to download multiple files at the same time.
Now generally this would be good but unfortunately my crappy modem grinds to a halt or crashes under heavy load so I'm wondering if it's possible to force smart to download one files at a time?
Since smart doesnt use a config file, so to speak, your pretty much stuck using it the way it is , that is unless you can find a log command line command that forces it to do things one step at a time.
Well I switched the crappy modem for a router so I no longer have that issue but it's nice to know there is a way after all.
I'll probably try it anyway just to see if works out faster overall. Good find.
