Default Downloads stall out

Have been trying for the last hour or so from different clients to download the new ia32 driver for linux, but every time the file transfer gets to some random point, stalls and fails.
Sigh.

Just thought you'd like to know.

Happens sometimes. I haven't figured out what is the cause or why. Use a download manager I guess.

are you downloading something with bittorrent? bittorrent clogs up you internet connection and will screw with downloads and websurfing.

nVidia's driver page references the nVnews.net Linux forum as a place for driver feedback and support. I imagine he followed the link here and posted it in this forum as "feedback" for the nVidia site.

But correct, we can't help

That's weird because NVIDIA's sites, both regular and nZone, are among the fastest and most reliable. But whatever. /shrug

Default Re: Downloads stall out

Running Mandriva 2005, downloaded and installed various pkg.run files before, and cannot get the download to complete. Tried about a month ago to see if 7174 would solve the lockups in my install of 2006 but download would not complete: stops at about 1% after less than 10 seconds. At the time, I thought it might have something to do with there being no "Accept" button on the license agreement plan, only a "Back" button. Finally, I gave up. Just now, I am trying again in Mozilla, Konqueror, in case it is a browser problem, and with wget on the command line. Ooh, goody, after about 10 minutes, I'm up to 2% in another seconds-long burst on this 2M/sec dsl connection:
[rolf@localhost 7174]$ wget http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/L...-7174-pkg1.run

Unfortunately, I have paid good money for my nvidia card and don't find this quite as amusing as some a**holes apparently do.

Alot of times download.nvidia.com (ftp and http) disconnect or reset me too.
Best thing to do is find a mirror.

I made a few here.
7174, 7664, 7667, and 7676.

That should do it for now.
