i have still the same problem with a slow ip connection via GPRS
(an usb-stick from vodafone and wvdial)

the maximum average download rate for in yast is
near 5KB/s.
the rate is very varying, which comes from the mobile-phone technology. there
are many fluctuations down to zero.
the download aborts by more or less 18%, depending of the actual quality of the

for such a connection every finite timeout limit will be wrong.

the best solution is a ftp-kind reget.

if i choose retry, yast (or whatever) should not begin the download at zero
offset, but at the already downloaded size.
the underlying library for data transfer is curl right? is there a
reget-capability in curl?
