Anyone else have trouble downloading Yellow Dog?
Everywhere I try from, it stops at 2800 MB?
If you're having freezing problems, try downloading the file using Free Download Manager (that's the name of the program). There was a little bit of lag for me when it was getting started, but I had really fast speeds all the way through.
Unfortunately, I have no idea why the update servers aren't working. When I go to the website it seems as if they have everything in there that the other versions of YDL do, but nothing is downloading correctly.
I've checked all of the files in my etc/yum.repos.d folder and they all seem to be pointing in the right place. The only thing I can figure is they have some sort of switch in the index file that is turning off downloading until they do the wide release (which hopefully happens today or tomorrow so terrasoft can keep their promise of a Dec 25th week release).
Oh my god...just figured something out. In the yum files...the freaking servers were commented out with #.
I just removed them and it works perfectly. I think I might kill myself for not noticing that sooner.
For those of you who care to do so.
1) Login as Root
2) navigate to filesystem/etc/yum.repos.d
3) In all three of the files, remove the # before each of the URL's that point to the download servers.
4) We all win.
I have no idea how I didn't notice that crap.
Also if anyone is interested, I've been able to run VLC and open up various mp3, xvid avi's, and divx avis by adding freshrpm repository to my yum.conf and downloading a bunch of additional rpm's. I might zip up all of my extra rpm files and my modified yum.conf file so other people could do it as soon as I pack it up like that for a good friend of mine.
Is there another link to this? mine keeps timing out...
Tell me if this link works for you:
That's a list of mirrors, not sure if they're updated or not and I have no idea of their speed. If you get an error trying to access that one I'll copy and paste the whole list because I'm getting to it just fine.
I connected fine this morning with about 500kbs, and came back a couple hours later to find my download box was gone and no iso was on my desktop. now i just getting really slow speeds and then it just stops. Using one of the mirro links now, getting about 500kbs so we will see.
I got the download to complete with one of the mirrors. THX coheedcollapse
