Re: [SLE] wget downloading DVD
How do you download files larger than 3GB using wget?When i
try to download a 3GB iso wget says:

Call me dumb, but ftp has a 2G limit, wget, until the 1.5 varient has the same limitation. I went through hell trying to download the 9.2 DVD. The solution was to get the latest cvs wget and do an rpm rebuild to create an rpm for installation on the current system. Once done, download was a breeze.

(I said call me dumb, so flames are welcomed)...

I was able to download the 9.2 DVD using mc (Midnight Commander). Perhaps a
good old fashioned ftp client (called 'ftp') does also work... ;)
