Default ca't download linux 64-bit tgz


It just spins forever and never starts. The other clients download okay, including linux 32-bit client. Is there another mirror?

This link doesn't work either, though I can see the contents of the directory:

er, I guess I'll just use the latest 64-bit 25.9...

The FTP server has a habit of misbehaving. I download it by using "wget -c". When it stops downloading, ctrl-c it and do it again. Takes about 3 or 4 tries to get it all.

I read that as 'masticating'.

I had to go all the way back to Mandriva 2007 repositories to find libcurl3 for the 32-bit clients...
