Downloading the DVD ISO image


Hi!

I treid to download the the DVD ISO image from the ftp server on suse.com servers, path /pub/suse/i386/current/iso/ but it doesn't wirk neiterh with Coffeecup FTP nor with FTP Commander. The file doesn't seem to be a file but a folder (!?!), with a negative size...?!!?

I'm totally stuck - why can't that simply be a link, and you click on it, and you get a download - period.

Thaks for helping,
wolf ;-)

You could try using rsync:
Code:
rsync -av ftp.gwdg.de::linux/suse/ftp.suse.com/suse/i386/9.3/iso/SUSE-9.3-Eval-DVD.iso . --partial --progress
Or try the DVD split:
ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/linux/suse/ftp.sus.../9.3/iso/split
And never use the main server if you have the choice of a faster mirror.
