Ok, after struggling some time (and bricking my Guruplug server plus) I have the newest u-boot on the plug as well as the uImage (kernel) now I wanted to transfer the rootfs but when I try downloading the image from http://www.plugcomputer.org/index.php/us/resources/downloads?func=select&id=18 the download stops at 182mb from the 185 mb in total. I tried several times but i can't get the complete image.
Anyone any idea what the $#@@!$# I am doing wrong?

(I know I can get the tar.bz2 file but with my limited build compile etc experience I want to save this as a last resourt)

ok, nice to know. But that does not solve my problem. Nor my Linux laptop, nor my windows laptop can download this file 100%. So I still don't get it.
However, impatient as I am I have studied and rebuild the rootfs image so it must be ok now

Question remains: why the ^%$@ won't my download complete?

Hi!

Sounds like a case of stale proxy cache to me.

Try to determine if your ISP is forcing you through a web proxy.


Cheers,

Sorry, apparently I am to stupid to get this. Although I don't know how to determine this, I found a "solution"  on the web that told me to add for instance ?1 behind the URL of the download which would be seen as a new address and thus not be taken from any proxy.
However, this didn't work either. Now I built the RFS myself from the tar.bz2 file, but my Guruplug still gest stuck while booting and to be sure I didn't f%ck up I would really like to download the img.

Any ideas?

try an intelligent downloader which is able to dowload part by part.

you can stuff your provider with it.

Surely a stale cache would result in an incorrect download, not a hanging one?
What are you using to download it?  Have you tried wget and/or curl on your Linux system?  What does HEAD (a perl script) show for it?  I get:
