Subject description: "Double Dipping"
 

A really annoying bug with Internet/ Pwsget secure file downloader.

I downloaded a file from a github site, about 3gb. It seemed to be trundling along
doing its thing, then it just started again as if it had resumed.
I don’t know what the message was, just some arcane one liner (forget now) and anyways I was making a cup of tea.
I checked the downloaded file, which was complete, but Pwsget was continuing to start all over again, and wasted 8gb or so before I had to shut it down.
It might have continued for gigs and gigs if I had unattended lol.

I noticed that Github gives an “unknown file size whilst downloading, like Google sites, which is a bit crap.
You get proper servers that tell you how much is left, anyways that is an aside..

If this program can’t be fixed not to “double or triple dip” , is there a similar app
anyone knows about that will have resume, proper progress and a download complete type dialog?
I seem to recall this has happened several times with Pwsget in the past.

I want to like it, but am willing to rip that sucker out of Puppy if need be.

Is it possible that a sha1-sum or md5-sum did not match?

Hi 8Geee,
I seem to remember a post yonks ago by Micko, where he fixed double dipping in puppy package manager.
I think it is kind of like that bug in the script, but I don't know.
I guess most people just use the browser for everything nowadays, including downloader.
There are a couple of regular bugs that have been fixed in earlier Puppies, and then they resurface again..
I think I will just find something more reliable.

Ok I found something called Uget, available in Puppy Package Manager (yay),
and Barry's offers to trim the fat on it.
Looks good, as long as it will not double dip Smile, will test it over a period.
Maybe everyone elses Pwsget works fine with 3gb (ahem 6gb) files!

I've made a pet for Uget V2.0.8, and managed to get it down from 48mb, to a more puppy like 3878k, by removing the excess themes icons and superfluous big boy linux stuff. It's in Smokey's Artful music2go repo if anyone wants to try it as a downloader.
