Posting continuing thread here to keep it under the right heading 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

The maximum download speed of my isp is in Download_max.png
By the way: There is a mirror in the Netherlands
with the result:

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
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.
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
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.
