Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 184430
prism54 based wireless card mysteriously can't download via http
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:25:58 EST
Description of problem:
Often the wireless card is unable to download larger (1Mb or greater) files via
HTTP. When first installing FC5 I attempted to get flash from macromedia using
firefox, either the built in plugin downloader, and simply downloading the
installer. Tried downloading other files through firefox all failed. Installing
pear packages using the 'pear install X' would commence the download and fail at
random amounts. Tried installing a pear package that is 1.2MB and it would get
anywhere from ~2000bytes to ~900 000bytes and stop. HOWEVER I can use a
different system to download the packages, and scp them to my system no problem,
bittorrent works. Most every other method works. Yum works (odd as it is http to
get the files..) I can't figure out why it would be a http thing, it makes no sense.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Almost always, depends on filesize.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download macromedia flash installer
1. pear channel-discover pear.symfony-project.com
2. pear install symfony/symfony
at random points during the download it will stop and fail
complete the download.
