Actually no, net neutrality doesn't play into this. This isn't caused by Comcast trying control the net; it's caused by Comcast trying to reduce their costs. If I'm right, there's nothing malicious here, just a badly implemented cache.

Well control your costs and make more money by favortizm do'nt seem that different or far apart to me... ":O}

In any case I pay Comcast to allow me to download from any where I like... they are restricting me with out even telling me, or saying why...

That said... It completed successfully ":O}

Maybe, but that's not their intention. Their intention is to give you access to the stuff you want as quickly as possible. As it happens, the best way to do that also reduces their costs.

That being said, looks like my theory is busted. Crap.

Daniel, what extensions do you have loaded in Firefox?

Most especially, do you have any download managers or download helpers loaded?

I've just discovered (after about 4 years) that I'm setting the Content-MD5 response-header incorrectly. It's not come up before because pretty much every browser in existence ignores that header. However, it's purpose is to provide an automated way for the browser to verify the downloaded content. If you've got an extension loaded that helps with downloads some way, and that extension looks at that header, you might very well get the error you are seeing, and that would explain why you don't see the failure until you finish downloading. It would also explain why you are the only one seeing the error, AND why you only get it here.

Beyound these...none that I know of... be happy to check if they might show up some where else on my system...? I'm in fedora 12 now... but as I recall it failed in Mint 7 as well. Yeah, I checked the very start of the thread, failed first in Mint 7 then after Installed it, failed in Fedora 12.

Hmm..........that's odd.....I don't see anything there that would trip things up.......unless the content cache that is sitting on Comcast's network is using that header.

I've disabled the Content-MD5 header. Would you mind to try the F12 download again, and let me know the results?

It doesn't always do this, but has done it before while try to grab this file when two browsers were open on separate desktops. I have tried using just one many times and still failed.. but I figure you can't have to much information on this.":O}

Might try removing the download history from firefox.

Open up a terminal
Code:
 rm ~/.mozilla/firefox/odevatpu.default/downloads.sqlite

Guess I have to figure where they hide that file in other distros. You would think that would stay the same across the board.

Actually, the directory varies from install to install of Firefox, in my experience. Specifically, your instructions mentioned 'odevatpu.default'. That is the default user profile directory, and is (to the best of my knowledge) generated randomly on every new installation of Firefox.

rm ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/downloads.sqlite

should do the trick.

Should I give our download another try? Still a no go...sigh...

/home/Daniel/Downloads/Fedora-12-x86_64-DVD.iso.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.

Try again later, or contact the server administrator.

Did not know that, thank you for the tip.

@Daniel, give the D/L another shot. I'm grasping at straws here though.
