Thumbs up

I have a small problem with your tutorial using "curl" or "wget". I have tried both to download the newest Mandriva One, and for a while had no success.
Here is my problem:
<This Page> has a LOT of different isos and md5sums to choose from ---- so, If I use the tutorial above, I get a text file of the mirror contents
Code:
downloads$ wget -c -o http://ftp.ale.org/pub/mirrors/mandrake/official/iso/2007.1
--07:06:17--  http://ftp.ale.org/pub/mirrors/mandrake/official/iso/2007.1
           => `2007.1'
Resolving ftp.ale.org... 66.184.207.32
Connecting to ftp.ale.org|66.184.207.32|:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 301 Moved Permanently
Location: http://ftp.ale.org/pub/mirrors/mandrake/official/iso/2007.1/ [following]
--07:06:20--  http://ftp.ale.org/pub/mirrors/mandrake/official/iso/2007.1/
           => `index.html.1'
Connecting to ftp.ale.org|66.184.207.32|:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: unspecified [text/html]

    [  <=>                                ] 9,425         38.11K/s

07:06:21 (38.01 KB/s) - `index.html.1' saved [9425]
And if I try the actual link itself:
Code:
mandriva-linux-2007-spring-one-KDE-cdrom-i586.iso                     11-Apr-2007 14:45  693M
I get this:
Code:
 wget -c -o mandriva-linux-2007-spring-one-KDE-cdrom-i586.iso
--07:08:24--  http://mandriva-linux-2007-spring-one-kde-cdrom-i586.iso/
           => `index.html.2'
Resolving mandriva-linux-2007-spring-one-kde-cdrom-i586.iso... failed: Name or service not known.
It took me a couple of days of trial and error, but I finally realized that I had to right click on the file to "copy link location" of the actual URL for the download and put it in after wget or curl. IMHO, it would be easier for us newbies if you would add that to your tutorial so we don't fight the terminal for two days trying to figure out what you are saying Thanks for a great site ... I use it a lot, I just don't usually have much to say !

Can somebody tell me what is "curl" and "wget" and how to use. Trying to download Mandriva One 2007 Live CD. Unfortunately, I have a dial-up internet connection. First time Linux user and would like to test drive this distro. Using XP.

According to http://linux.about.com/od/commands/l/blcmdl1_curl.htm

Quote:
curl is a client to get documents/files from or send documents to a server, using any of the supported protocols (HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, GOPHER, DICT, TELNET, LDAP or FILE). The command is designed to work without user interaction or any kind of interactivity.

curl offers a busload of useful tricks like proxy support, user authentication, ftp upload, HTTP post, SSL (https connections, cookies, file transfer resume and more.
GNU Wget is a free utility for non-interactive download of files from the Web. It supports HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP protocols, as well as retrieval through HTTP proxies.

From http://linux.about.com/od/commands/l/blcmdl1_wget.htm

Quote:
Wget is non-interactive, meaning that it can work in the background, while the user is not logged on. This allows you to start a retrieval and disconnect from the system, letting Wget finish the work. By contrast, most of the Web browsers require constant user's presence, which can be a great hindrance when transferring a lot of data.

Go to the Slackware 12 page and either browse the mirrors or click the link further down the page. You will then be prompted to save the file.

While, from one point of view, that is in the running for the much-prized 'Obvious Comment of the Week' award, from another, you might actually be trying to get help with something.

If it is something earlier in this thread, would you care to be specific about which bit you are having trouble with, and what trouble, exactly, it is giving you?

OTOH, if it is a general question about Linux, you might be better advised to start your own thread in, eg, Newbie, again giving details of the trouble that you are having, as that does tend to lead towards the most targeted help.

And,as this is your first post, Welcome!
