cc'ing the mirrors list
For the Netherlands, there are two LibreOffice download mirrors, the
ftp.nluug.nl mirror and the mirrors.supportex.net mirror.
The NLUUG mirror works just excellent (as do all other European and World
mirrors that I tried), but not(!) the Supportex mirror.
When http://www.libreoffice.org/download/ redirects the Dutch user not to
the NLUUG mirror but to the Supportex mirror, or when the Supportex mirror
is chosen from the mirrorlist page (via "Get details (md5sum,...)"), a very
peculiar download behavior occurs. It then takes a long(!) time till finally
the Internet Explorer download manager popup window ('Run/Save/Cancel')
appears, offering the download.
First I thought the download wasn't offered at all (while nevertheless there
was all kind of network, anti-virus, HDD and CPU action), but recently I
found out that when you wait a long(!) time the download is finally offered
with the IE download manager to pop up.
The LibreOffice download from the Supportex mirror is the only(!) download I
ever encountered that shows that strange kind of download behavior.
You can try it for yourself, using this download link:
I use Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 32 bit (Dutch) with Internet Explorer
(first IE8, now IE9) (Dutch).
I don't know whether browser and OS are of relevance in this issue.
I checked with a download manager system which provides more information.
The download starts immediately but fails in giving back information
for re-establishment of the download.
Maybe this causes the problem.
Would be nice if the mirrror admin can step in here.
I've just checked the URL provided several times and found out the
- download starts immediately - that's OK
- if you stop/pause download then next time you'll get file from the
beginning (resume doesn't work)
- shall you try to start/pause/resume several times you'll get 404 error
(looks like some kind of requests limit implemented there)
