wget via mirrors


I have been trying to download slackware ISOs using wget after hours.

nice wget -v -t 99 -r -c -e robots=off http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackwa...ckware-current

What I get is a bunch of directories corresponding to each of the servers that I used via mirror.slackware.com.

So I added -nH. Then I added --cut-dirs. Then I found out that I was somehow pulling bunches of stuff, like older distributions which I never asked for.

Am I missing something which changed when the mirrors implementation was folled out?

That is how I used to do it...but slackware.com now suggests using the mirrors.slackware.com address, and I was trying to get things to work that way.

I tried specifically that, and while it may have worked in the past, it doesn't now. When I try it now, it seems to go deeper than the root, and transfer all slackware distributions, which is not desired.

I am wondering if somehow either the directory structure has changed, or my global wget config may have changed. I'll see if there is a wget config, and chase that down first.

Pretty extensive googling did not find anyone else complaining of the same problem.
