Description phostetl 2003-03-31 21:01:35 UTC
Description of problem:

Following the instructions to fetch an ISO using curl per the web site gives
this error upon resuming a transfer:

$ curl -C - -O
** Resuming transfer from byte position 150177507
  % Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed          Time             Curr.
                                 Dload  Upload Total    Current  Left    Speed
  0     0    0     0    0     0      0      0 --:--:--  0:00:50 --:--:--     0
curl: (33) HTTP server doesn't seem to support byte ranges. Cannot resume.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Always.  At least when the server is up. :/

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into RHN.
2. Follow instructions to grab instant ISO using curl.
3. Have transfer interrupted.
4. Resume transfer with same curl command.
5. Observe error message.
Actual results:
Error message:
curl: (33) HTTP server doesn't seem to support byte ranges. Cannot resume.

Expected results:
Shiny new ISO.

Additional info:
Even with a fat pipe an ISO image is no small file.  Resuming file transfers can
be a good thing. :)

Comment 1 Chip Turner 2003-04-14 15:39:36 UTC
typically this message is when the URL expires (they have finite lifetime). 
returning to the ISO page and getting a new URL for the same ISO image should
allow you to reusme from where you left off

Comment 2 Mike Orazi 2008-04-21 14:58:51 UTC
Cleaning out the bz backlog.  Since it has been quite a while, and I can resume
downloads as outlined above, I'm going to close and second Chip's explanation.
