[BigBug] Unable to download large file
« on: December 12, 2020, 10:41:13 PM »
As title, the system cannot download large files, as long as the downloaded file is too large,
when the file has not been downloaded, the system will be stuck, crash.
Whether downloaded from the command line or from file management,
the system will fake death without any response.

for example
Code: [Select]
wget -T0 https://mirrors.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/qt/archive/qt/5.12/5.12.0/qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.12.0.run

NOTE: I'm just taking Qt as an example. I know there's QT in the TCL's repo.

You ran out of RAM without swap. That happens when you try to download too large files into RAM. Put them on your hd.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Hello forum.

Perhaps you could try it from a source or public network that you are aware of.

Sometimes they have very very fast systems indeed.. (i mean throughput and bandwidth)

thx

Hi vinceASPECT
It's not a speed issue, he just ran out of RAM.

Rich and forum,

Ahh right.  That is what  conflicted with me.,,,,,,,,,where  actually it is as  you described Rich.

i never really understand servers and clients, which is hierarchy for delivery speed----- versus what your ISP demands the data at.

while i guess it's about traffic right.....amount(s)

so it's just storage amounts for the information (fole).....in the case above  (RAM).....
so wonder whether the person can download it to solid state storage (pen drive) or device (other)
to solve it

many thanks Rich,

Vince

Forgive me, I have been confused, I did not download the file into memory,
I downloaded the file to /tmp, Does /tmp use RAM instead of hard disk?

Yes, /tmp is in ram - you need to save large files to a mounted storage device - for example /mnt/sdb1
