Slackware-10.1 DVD ISO d/l greater than filesize


The Slackware-10.1 DVD ISO filesize is:
Code:
ftp://ftp.slackware.no/linux/ISO-images/Slackware/Current-ISO-build/
slackware-10.1-DVD.iso  	3172884 KB  	02/07/2005  	12:15:00 PM
I downloaded it yesterday with gftp and is was running
over the size to 112%. I checked the filesize and it was
too large, so I rm'ed it and started over.

Today it's doing the same thing. Right now gftp says:
Code:
ftp.slackware.no     119% complete, 13254:06:41 est. time remaining. File 1 of 1
      Slackware-10.1-DVD.iso  Recv 3,907,348,184 of 3,249,033,216 at 89.82KB/s, 13420:59:06 est. time remaining.
And this is what my drive shows:
Code:
mingdao@james:~/titus$ ls -alc ~/iso
total 8858518
drwxr-xr-x   2 mingdao users        904 2005-02-09 15:12 ./
drwx--x--x  76 mingdao users       5256 2005-02-09 16:56 ../
-rw-r--r--   1 mingdao users 3918101824 2005-02-10 09:03 slackware-10.1-DVD.iso
-rw-r--r--   1 mingdao users         58 2005-02-09 02:38 slackware-10.1-DVD.iso.md5
NB: numbers are not exactly the same because it's still
downloading and I can't copy and paste from gftp.

Why in the world is this happening, and how do I stop
it from downloading when the file is full?

I downloaded all the Slackware-10.1 CDs with gftp
and had no problems; nor with anything else I've used
gftp to d/l.

I don't know anythnig about gftp (don't like clicky clicky ftp programs), but I'd make sure it's using BINARY mode to DL the file, even though from *NIX -> *NIX it shouldn't really matter.

Barring that, I'd try ncftp, bsdftp, wget, fetch, links, lynks or one of the host of other FTP capable programs likely available on your system.

Thanks, sigsegv...

Code:
227 Entering Passive Mode (158,36,2,10,231,21).
RETR /linux/ISO-images/Slackware/Current-ISO-build/slackware-10.1-DVD.iso

150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for /linux/ISO-images/Slackware/Current-ISO-build/slackware-10.1-DVD.iso (3249033216 bytes)
Since it's worked for other iso d/ls, and I've set it to binary rather
than ascii, I didn't think that was the problem.

Trying wget -- will see what happens.

Just thought it would be interesting to have a Slackware distro on on disc.

why not download the whole 10.1 directory tree and make your own iso with the readme in the isolinux directory

Why?

Because I didn't want to "make an iso," I just wanted
to download one that's already available on the web.

wget failed also

maybe there is a problem with the ftp.slackware.no server. wget d/led
2147483647 2005-02-11 09:47 slackware-10.1-DVD.iso
and then quit.

I just ran this
Code:
mingdao@james:~/downloads$ wget -c ftp://ftp.slackware.no/linux/ISO-ima...e-10.1-DVD.iso
--09:47:10--  ftp://ftp.slackware.no/linux/ISO-ima...e-10.1-DVD.iso
           => `slackware-10.1-DVD.iso'

100%[+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++] 2,147,483,647   --.--K/s             File size limit exceeded
mingdao@james:~/downloads$
Any more ideas?

I'd still like to know why gftp kept d/ling over the limit of
the filesize. I've used it for years and never had such a
problem.

Since gftp and wget BOTH had a problem from that server,
I'm assuming the problem lies with the DVD.iso on that server.

I tried again with wget and it got to the same point
and failed again.

Also downloaded it with Firefox 1.0 from the same
ftp://ftp.slackware.no/linux/ISO-ima...ent-ISO-build/
site. It ran over just like the gftp download.

Conclusion...there's a problem with the ftp.slackware.no
server and/or that slackware-10.1-DVD.iso image -- which
by the way, is NOT an official Slackware image.

Finally got it with ncftpget...what a pain this d/l turned out to be,
and I'd still like to know why gftp and Firefox both let it run over...
