Description of problem:

Try to wget or curl the ISO's for RHEL-3WS or RHEL-3ES Update 2 and
encounter problems.

using wget or curl file name for update2 iso's are not being formated

file name shows up as




rather then the proper (just the stuff pre .iso) name
tested wget and curl with RHEL-3WS/ES Update 1 and filename is proper.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget or curl the copied link to update 2
2. observe the long wrong file name 
3. wget or curl the copied link to update 1 
4. observe the nromal filename
Expected results:

over to robin to fix.
Comment 3 Todd Warner 2004-06-22 10:03:14 EDT
Ok... works fine from a browser, but not so good from wget or curl.

Linking it to a release so the bug is more prominent. Reprioritze as
you see fit.

This is deferred to rhn360hosted.
Comment 5 Shannon Hughes 2004-10-11 16:35:41 EDT
*Akami requires us to use a specific url format for downloading isos.
the get parameters used by Akami are causing curl to include as the
filename on the client due to the -O option that is currently messaged
to the user:

Once curl is installed, at a shell prompt, cut and paste the URL for
the ISO into the curl command as follows:

[user@localhost home]$ curl -C - -O 'very_long_url'

*Adding additional messaging to inform user the capability of
selecting a custom name:

Use the following curl command to save the iso as 'myfilename.iso':

[user@localhost home]$ curl -C - -o 'myfilename.iso' 'very_long_url'
