Downloading CentOS 5.4 i386 bin DVD iso

Postby harvarinder » 2010/05/11 23:11:01

Hi,

I am trying to download CentOS 5.4 from the following link

http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/centos/5.4/isos/i386/
The file I am trying is

CentOS-5.4-i386-bin-DVD.iso 02-Oct-2009 12:35 3.7G

I have downloaded it twice with chrome and the size I received twice is 1.99 GB (2,147,417,640 bytes)

Is this correct or I am doing something wrong.

I am reluctant to try another mirror because I guess they all will point to the same file.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you.
Harvey.

I would download the CentOS-5.4-i386-bin-DVD.torrent. Then a known torrent client to download the DVD. Because a torrent client check the transaction of the downloaded file.

Based on your suspicious file size I suspect your current OS or filesystem does not support filesizes over 2GB.
Are you downloading to FAT?

FAT32 supports files upto 4GB (almost...some bytes less than that, actually) so that's unlikely to be the issue. Maybe a bug in chrome that prevents it to get files bigger than 2GB?

If the OP will tell us more about the environment we may be able to help. So far chiuna has the best and most general suggestion.
