Hi all,

I've been retrieving the first inital updates  of Beta, which is about 542mb in total. I've gotten 75% done, but using command line, sudo pisi up, it keeps hanging after retrieving only part of nvidia-current.  I've tried
sudo pisi up -c system.base, but it still hangs.  I've been able to get part of it twice, only after I first delete it from /var/cache/pisi/packages. One time I got 9mb, second time I got 12mb.  Pisi won't resume this particular package, even though I have caching of repositories enables.
I've also tried
sudo pisi clean
in case it was a stale lock.  It didn't help. 
So, I figured I could retrieve it using wget, but not sure where this nvidia-current link is exactly in the 2011 package tree:
Edited: oops, wrong tree.  I found it here:
http://packages.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2011/stable/x86_64/

Is anyone else having  problems retrieving this update? 
Any help is much appreciated.
Lisa Marie

Note: Not certain if maybe pisi has reached the cache limit in /var/cache/pisi/packages folder, but I have the pardus / installed on a 75GB partition.    I have cache set to unlimited. 
Will try again after noon time my time, as I believe that is when Pardus maintainers reset servers.

I found similar bug report, though in my case, it happens with only a certain package and also happens when I use wget -c or kget to download the package, as well as Firefox download manager, or when logged into Windows XP and use Kmeleon browser download manager.

Posting continuing thread here to keep it under the right heading   Cheesy


http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=3484.msg17808#msg17808

Maybe it is just with third-party packages. 
I don,t think it has anything to do with the third-party, as this only means that Pardus doesn't have the source code.
The package is made by the Pardus package builders and transferred to the server, after which a new pisi-index is generated.

I'm sure their servers are running at full speed with the addition of 2011 Beta.
I don't know how they maintain the Pardus server(s) and this means the behavior can change any moment.

And as I don't know (in detail) how FF does the job, I can only show the result of wget on sunday 21 nov 09:45 CET

This mirror is synchronized with the Pardus servers every ?? hours.
I have detected a synchronization with the P2009 repo within 2 hours (<<< this not a guaranty Grin).


Wow, 7.7 seconds?  The same file using dial up would take me about 36 minutes.

Another update.  Thanks for sharing that link, atolboo!  I tried it and it stalled at exactly 7015,28KBps (53% or 6.9mb - same spot). 
I also tried it while in XP using Kmeleon browser's download manager (I only use a Firewall and no Antivirus in XP) and same result.  The repo I have active  is for stable.  I looked in testing and tried downloading the file from there, but same result. 
I'm tempted to try another ISP, as some offer free trial period.  But, what I have done is submitted a support request from my ISP and asked them to try downloading it to see what happens on their side.  Hopefully I will get a response. 

Again, thanks for your feedback, atolboo.  We shall see what support from ISP says.  If anything, I would only ask that someone else using dial up to try downloading it, but I think there is no one else that uses dial up here.  Sad

For now, I am retrieving other updates besides the stickler nvidia-current, by doing:
sudo pisi up
which shows availabe updates and starts to retrieve them. I do
control c
to halt the download, I then enter
sudo pisi it <and copy and select all package names except for nvidia-current> --reinstall
No problem there, just tedious.
If I try to do updates with the partial 6.9mb nvidia-current package in the var/cache/pisi/packages, it stalls whenever it gets to that file to download/update.  I have to delete the package, and then it will start to downloads, but when it gets to the nvidia-current package, as usual, it stalls at the same point.  Srange problem.

Yes, it remains a strange problem.

And I did another test with the following result.
I repeated this P2011Alpha2 installation but this time on a Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz computer.
After the first start I replaced the standard repo

The download lasted for 10 minutes (see Upgrade-Alpha-Beta-surfnet.png) and after this the installation by the 3GHz P4 needed 69 minutes.
After a restart I changed the repo back to the original repo  and an update gave 0 packages to update.
So Surfnet is a 100% mirror of pardus.org.tr and I didn't get any problem:D

As of today, this is solved.  Smiley

I'm not sure if it was something Team Pardus did, or something I did, but before retrieving today's updates which included a newer kernel 2.6.36.1-146, I went to System Settings>Network Settings>Connection Settings and increased the timeout values to about 65 to 75 seconds for socket read, server connect, and server response, I increased latter to 2000 seconds.  Under FTP options I unticked, Mark Partially Uploaded Files: apply.  A fully successful update using PiSi command line, including nvdia-current.
If I have the time, I will test this by re-installing it, but for now, I am happy this has been solved.  It was the first time I checked Network Settings as they usually do not pertain to dial up.  I still do not know what these settings are for, but I have downloaded a PDF document to read up on it.
I updated the bug report.
Regards, and again, thanks, atolboo, for taking the time to give me some clues.

It's interesting that this happened again with the last update of xorg-video-nvidia-current on the 15th of December.

I wanted to test if this would happen again after the last problem, and  went to system settings>network settings>connection preferences and reset timeout values to default settings.  It hung at 81% of said package update.  By increasing the timeout values again I was able to retrieve the rest of the package. 
Just thought this was interesting.

Thanks atolboo.  Yes, those are the defaults.  Since I use dial up, increasing the server connect and server response does the trick, otherwise the download hangs, as does pisi command line and package manager GUI.
