Download manager


the weakest point for suse (or maybe all distro) is there are not good download manager like on windows (on windows I like using Flashget).

Kget is not really good enough...I always having a problem when downloaded a file....
so can someone give me a clue what download manager should I use?

I don't know what you mean by that? In Slackware...

mingdao@james:~$ wget ftp://ftp.belnet.be/packages/slackwa....23-i486-1.tgz

just goes out and gets the file. The -c switch allows you to continue getting a partially d/led file. Read man wget for details. Mate, there isn't anything in Windoze to compare with wget IMO.

Perhaps I'm loosing some flexibility but I do most of my downloads with Firefox. I had been using the FireFTP extension when logging into an FTP site was required but it seems to have disappeared with the release of Firefox 1.0.3.
