Description jackie linkowski 2005-04-22 23:02:21 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
I have not always reliable link.  Particulalry visible when large packages are downloaded, for example some of openoffice are over 100MB.  Not quite reproducible at will as i have no control over my Internet connection (satellite two-way).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce: on icon indicating updates are available (best if openoffice is some of components have large file size) through on all windows download start, then hang.  window showing download progress does not refresh.  has to be killed by clicking on x and selecting "force quit"

Actual Results:  Hangs

Expected Results:  Times out, provides summary of which packages downloaded and which did not.
Time out gracefully

Related Enhancements Suggestions:
1. Allow resume where partailly downloaded packages continue download.  Currently download starts from scratch.  Ah! and my broadband has a limiit of about 180MB after which download slows down to a crawl - no more then 50kbps
2. Keep packages under 20MB.  Split openoffice and other large ones into smaller chunks.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Closing per lack of response to previous comment.  If this still occurs on FC3
or FC4 and is a security issue, please assign to Fedora Legacy and the
appropriate version.  The bug could also be filed against RHEL if it is relevant

up2date has been replaced by pirut and pup in FC5 and FC6, the still fully
supported versions of Fedora Core, so this bug will not be fixed unless it is a
security issue.
