Good download manager - no kde or gnome libs (but GTK+)

Hey people! I haven't installed KDE neither Gnome and I want to keep like that . But I have GTK+ and all its required libs (pango, cairo, etc.). Does anyone know a good download manager which supports resume and doesn't need KDE or Gnome? It may be for console or GUI (yes, I have X installed ).

Thanks in advance...

ftp supports resumes, and so does wget, and i believe there are a few FE's for wget.

d4x doesn't require GNOME I'm pretty sure. I'm in the exact same boat as you, I use GTK apps but no GNOME installed Distros generally build apps to require more deps than they need to give more functionality but if you're looking to keen a lean system then try rebuilding certain apps.

Well, I like to get my system as clean as possible...

I will take a look in d4x.

Btw, wget worked perfectly. I have even recovered a DVD .iso download which I interrupted using "kill" in the half of it and I didn't get any errors later, the .iso worked perfectly...

Thanks everyone!
