Subject: [gentoo-dev] Can't download ix86.iso
Date: Tue, 02 Apr 2002 01:33:24
1 I've been trying to download Gentoo since back during
2 the last revision, but no matter what I try it doesn't
3 download here at home. I use Mozilla 0.9.9 and
4 Netscape 6.2.2, but when I click on the link it
5 basically sits there forever and never downloads
6 anything. I've tried the mirrors, and I get the same
7 behavior on every single one of them. I tried using a
8 couple of different FTP clients today with one of the
9 mirrors, but I still couldn't download the file. I
10 think I've even tried using curl. When I tell the
11 browser to save the file, the most I ever get is 1K,
12 and usually not even that. I've left it there for
13 hours to see if it eventually got going, but nope,
14 nothing. When I try at school on the Winblows
15 computers there using the same browsers it works just
16 fine, but here at home with SuSE Linux 7.2
17 Professional it doesn't work at all. I really, really
18 want to try Gentoo, but if I can't download the ISO I
19 don't think I will. Some other links on the page work,
20 like the stage1 tarball, but I don't want that, I want
21 the ix86.iso file. Are the server and all mirrors set
22 to deny me or something? Well, I'm gonna keep trying,
23 but unless I can get the ix86.iso file to download
24 here from home I don't think I'll be trying Gentoo.
25 Even if there's some workaround, I don't want a
26 workaround, I just want to be able to download the
27 file in peace and be done with it. Thanks for your
28 help.
