wget missing large file support
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:02 EST
Description of problem:
wget cannot handle large files
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget -c ftp://limestone.uoregon.edu/fedora/2/i386/iso/FC2-i386-DVD.iso
2. .... wait ....
Get message about file being too large ....
I expected to get a complete, 4370640896 byte, ISO image.
See also bug #122746 (curl doesn't have large file support).
Maybe the patch above solves it (RHEL has IIRC 1.8.x), but that patch
doesn't work in 1.9 :-(
The wget maintainer is aware of this and already works on a new
version with large file support.
