Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 162833
Info about wget and LFS support - FC2 (updated) and FC3 capable
Last modified: 2007-04-22 13:20:14 EDT
FC4 release notes state in
5. Installation-Related Notes
"If you intend to download the Fedora Core 4 DVD ISO image, keep in mind
that not all file downloading tools can accommodate files larger than 2GB in
size. For example, wget will exit with a File size limit exceeded error."
It may be noted that users of an up to date FC2 or an FC3 system have a wget on
their system which is able to handle files of >= 2GB size.
wget on FC1 lacks LFS support.
FC5 release notes now say:
If you intend to download the Fedora Core 5 DVD ISO image, keep in mind that not
all file downloading tools can accommodate files larger than 2GB in size. wget
1.9.1-16 and above, curl and ncftpget do not have this limitation, and can
successfully download files larger than 2GB.
I think it is ok to close the ticket as solved.
