slackware download bs
last night before bed, i started to download the slackware 8.1 iso from sourceforge.net or whatever...
i wake up to see it finished, but with an error: insufficiant resources exsist for whatever.. when it was copying it to the disk at the very end.. what the heck?
how can i prevent that next time.. i wanna do it myself.. but if i cant.. i would ask someone else
win2k pro sp2
20g/2 win2k/18 storage
nothing was running but norton av
i had saved it to d:/.. should i try c:/? there is enough room there barely for it...--Jacob--

If there is more than 700mb free, you should be fine.
Probably need either a bigger swap file or you have too many programs runnning.
If you are dlingn with IE or something, I reccomend getting either Getright or DAP. Both allow you to resume Dls (Opera does too, but it's nto as rubust as these two progs).
Getright (I find this program better for dling linux with):

i happen to like getright for iso downloading... it can resume lost dl's and also it can split them up and download from several sources...

getright can also be used in linux with wineGot root?

hmm.. i will give it a try.. and there was 10gb free on drive d
my swap file is like 400mb max.. i could make it bigger for a bit i suppose

512 is a good size I have found.
Also, set the min and max to the same size. Makes the computer run faster.

I'll bet you're downloading with IE?
Little catch for ya...
If you tell IE to download to D: it FIRST downloads to the temporary internet files folder (usually on C) and THEN moves it to D: .... crappy downloader
Welcome back to the net, sounds like DSL is working lolHelicopters don't fly; they vibrate so much and make so much noise that the earth rejects them.

i set my swap to 300 min 1000 max, i will change it afterwards

Swapfile won't help that part, it doesn't download into the swap
Just that stupid temporary internet files folder
