I am having trouble downloading the latest lxpup. Both Google and Firefox stop downloading at around 10MB or so. Is there another place where I can download it from?

Thanks!!!

It's a w(eb)get planet. Open a shell in your dwnld dir and:
Code:
wget http://superb-dca2.dl.sourceforge.net/project/checkmatelxde/Lxpup-13.01/Lxpup_13.01-FULL.iso

Of course, you may want the smaller of the two: http://sourceforge.net/projects/checkmatelxde/files/Lxpup-13.01/

The connection *may be* throttled.. meaning, you control it.

Thanks so much! This is the first time I use wget. Should I be using this tool in the future? You mention that I can control the throttle. I will have to check this out. Is it better downloading iso files this way?

Sure is- big files anyway.

If you need to break the dwnld, it's: ctrl+c

To resume a dwnld, add: -c after wget and before your url.

*Not all sites allow this.

If you wanna throttle, aka >> not use all your bandwidth, it's:

--limit-rate=70k after your other switches, but before your url.

*70- a variable you decide.

These are the common ones.

User names, passwds and user-agent strings can all be used..
