Tweaking KGet


I am stuck up.

I have a really slow connection right here, and I am very fond of tryin new Distros.

I was downloading Slackware 10.1 from www.linuxiso.org
but now, the ftp i was downloadin from demands a user name and password.

Is there any way that i could change the URL of the file i was downloading?

It has already been downloaded half way, and I can't re run it because of the slow connection.

Any Ideas for tweakin Kget?

i am using mandrake 10.1 Official with KDE 3.2.3

yeah, BUt what about the password?

I did not get a chance to do that...........Now i am really stuck............The download started automatically all over again.

I feel really agitated!

Anyways, thanks for your suggestions......

If that anonymous thing would have come to my mind previously, then I would have done it.....

Anyways, is there anyway to switch mirrors in Kget?

When using kget, i`m afraid it`s impossible. It even doesn`tunderstand it`s own partial files. The only way to do it manually would be changing the size of already donloaded piece, meanwhile replacing your new partial file with the earlier downloaded and copied piece. But I doubt it`s possible.

Anonymous login usually don't requires a password, so leave it blank...
