Perhaps it is just your browser. Using a download manager should fix this problem and allow you to resume downloads if you wish.

Software.opensuse.org is where you can find the openSUSE isos.

If you are using WINDOZE Internet explorer won't download DVD size files due to a maximum file size limitation. You can still use Firefox / Opera on Windoze to get round IE's drawbacks.

If you are still getting errors (any system) just delete any files you have, refresh / clear your browser's cache, delete any entry you have in any download manager you might be using and start the download again.

www.opensuse.org is the best place to get it - although you might find some mirrors.

Cheers

If you are trying to download the entire DVD, you will require the Bittorrent downloader.

Hi Romanator -- You don't need to use Bittorrent for SUSE 10.3 - You need it for the Beta 11 version. You CAN use it if you want to however.

Released versions don't require Bittorrent.

Actually also if you DO use bittorrent ensure your machine is adequately protected against spy/mal/adware and viruses - especially if using a Windoze version of bittorrent.

Cheers

Why would you need protection against viruses when you are downloading a torrent from opensuse.org?

Opensuse is fine -- but I was just outlining the principle that if you up / download to / from peer to peer file sharing networks using software such as Bittorrent you should ALWAYS have some computer protection available even if you know sites like opensuse Should in theory be OK.

No site is ever 100% hackproof --there are plenty of "dubious low lifes" out there who would certainly rise to this sort of challenge.

Cheers

You might as well say that you should use anti-virus if you are even on the internet on a windows computer
