Requested by: Klaus Kämpf (kwk)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
YaST/YOU times out too easy when downloading large packages like kde-
base (14 MB) over a single ISDN connection. Please cache the half
downloaded package so I don't have to start from the beginning again.
See http://bugzilla.suse.de/show_bug.cgi?id=9740

#1: Gerald Pfeifer (geraldpfeifer) (2006-06-30 17:40:31)
Klaus, do you now whether this is still an issue?

#2: Klaus Kämpf (kwk) (2006-06-30 18:38:23)
We still have very large packages (kernel, OpenOffice_org) which might
not download completely in one go.

#7: Stanislav Visnovsky (visnov) (2007-11-23 10:32:46)
Related to commit-refactoring.

#9: Federico Lucifredi (flucifredi) (2008-06-12 20:21:33)
Klaus, are you still running ISDN? just kidding :-)
Stano, please your opinion on workload - is this easily achievable? if
not, there are hgher priorities.

#10: Stanislav Visnovsky (visnov) (2008-06-20 13:10:21) (reply to #9)
Jiri, could we get estimate for this?

#11: Jiri Srain (jsrain) (2008-08-04 08:59:34) (reply to #10)
Since curl itself does support resuming download, then this feature
should not be hard to be implemented.

#12: Ruchir Brahmbhatt (ruchir) (2009-01-17 12:07:25)
I also vote for this feature.

#13: Dmitry Mittov (michael_knight) (2009-01-19 09:01:09)
It is also a great problem when you use slow mirror. download.opensuse.
org redirects me to one of yandex mirrors (score 20). And I have
timeout on big packages.

#14: Piotrek Juzwiak (benderbendingrodriguez) (2009-01-21 18:17:13)
I'd vote at least for a way to change the timeout settings for YaST or
it doesn't solve the problem?

#15: Alam Aby Bashit (init7) (2009-01-22 09:35:17)
I'd like to vote this feature implemented in 11.2. You surely want to
have resume capability if you have unreliable yet slow internet
connection for say, updating KDE 4.2 :)

#16: Duncan Mac-Vicar (dmacvicar) (2009-01-22 15:14:44) (reply to #15)
Please stop this "I vote for this" or "+1" or "mee too" comments. There
is no voting system in FATE yet, but following a discussion about "I
want this too" makes hard to evaluate features.

#17: James Mason (bear454) (2009-01-24 06:05:01)
Could this be accomplished using a bittorrent backend instead of curl
?

+ #18: Jan Engelhardt (jengelh) (2009-01-30 15:31:33) (reply to #17)
+ ISDN is already slow as it is. I would not want to spend more time
+ downloading just because of the metadata traffic that is going to
+ happen. Not to mention what happens if there are no peers around or
+ they configured themselves to upload-limit themselves. Still, most
+ download.opensuse.org downloads are faster than a torrent for me.
