Description Adam Greenberg 2003-03-28 04:12:28 UTC
Description of problem: Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: not applicable Steps to Reproduce: Not applicable 1. 2. 3. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info: 1. The up2date utility does not allow me to pause a download or resume one that has failed. The latter is a big problem. I have only 56k access and large downloads (kernels) frequently suffer abrupt termination by the RHN server. I have no recourse but to restart the entire download. It would be enormously usefule if up2date could checkpoint itself periodically and allw me to resume from the last checkpoint in the event of a connection failure. 2. When I select multiple packages for download, up2date appears to treat the collection selected as an all or nothing download. If any of the component downloads fail with a connection termination, the entire download fails and up2date terminates. A fix for (1) above would help this probnlem too.

Current versions support resume (it will start over from where it left off on particully downloaded packages). Pause is mentioned in other pending RFE's so closing this currentrelease.
