Requested by: Klaus Kämpf (kwk)
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 (http://bugzilla.suse.de/show_bug.cgi?id=9740) http://bugzilla.suse.de/show_bug.cgi?id=278507 (http://bugzilla.suse.de/show_bug.cgi?id=9740)
Discussion: #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.
#5: Milisav Radmanic (radmanic) (2006-09-08 15:25:57) (reply to #4) this applies to the media manager and Jiri already agreed to return this back to the YAST team, since Marius only helped out during CODE 10. Marius will of course help with the implementation, by sharing his knowledge.
#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.
+ #19: Pascal Bleser (pbleser) (2009-03-02 08:42:26) + Caching is one thing. But even using retries in curl would help, see + "curl --retries".
