There seems to be a problem at the xilka site.

Any attempt to download the 3.4.5.-uImage file is incredibly slow and eventually times out.
The other files seem to be fine, though, so it's not the network connexion to the site. It's almost as if it's been written to a bad-spot on the disk.

Actually, the other locations are not all OK.
Accessing the source directory results in a 502 Bad Gateway error.
And the release directory contains a directory called 2, which seems to have the cubox 3.4.5 files.

Navy...poor choice of colors.  I had to bring up the page source to read it.

Yes, I'm aware of the cubox/source directory issue.  I have to take the time to fix it.  My python server doesn't seem to like the number of files in that directory.  Anyway, that is cubox source, not sheevaplug.

And yes the cubox files are in a subdirectory 2 which is my new strategy for dealing with revisions.  The download scripts will automatically grab the latest revision.  It avoids the hassle of flushing web server caches.  I'll be changing the sheevaplug download scripts to use the same strategy as soon as I can find time.

Or you have a poor choice of background colours?

Not just that.  The download of the *-uImage files is also incredibly slow, and often times-out.  The same is now true for the 3.4.6 files, which have just shown up.

e.g. I downloaded sheeva-3.4.6-Modules.tar.gz in 7.4s, at 1.14MB/s

sheeva-3.4.6-uImage is crawling along, with frequent stops, and is expected to take > 10mins.  (That's if it doesn't timeout...)
