Description of problem:
I download a large file (234704410 byte to be precise, a tarball)
from a machine running RH 7.3 (but a self-compiled Apache)
Upon arrival, the file has the correct size, but it does not
have the correct content: md5sum does not match, tar says
'crc error' about 3/4 through.
This experiment was repeated twice with the same results. Note
that download passed through a RH 7.1 machine set up as natting
packetfilter in front of an ADSL. Download time: ~4h.
Download of file using FTP (Pure-FTP server + SafeTP encryptor) works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Prepare a large file
2. Download with lynx
3. Compute md5sum
Actual Results: Files don't match
Expected Results: Files should match
Hello, I try to reproduce your problem, but I was not succesful (I use the last
version of lynx - lynx-2.8.5-27.1).
Could you please try to reproduce this problem with this version of lynx and
attach a testcase here.
Hi. This is a very old bug, I can try to reproduce on the Red Hat 9.0
(2.4.20-20.9) with lynx-2.8.5-11. I think that was the original system that
exhibited the problem (I wanted to scratch the machine in the next couple of
weeks) Do you think it is still worthwhile reproduce it after 2 years?
Best regards -- David
I think it is not necessary. I tested the last vesion of lynx and it seems fine.
Red Hat 9.0 is quite outdated so there could be some problem which is fixed now.
I'm closing this bug now. If you find some test case please reopen this bug and
attach it. Thanks.
