"Stalling" during Seti@home WU Download
Posted on 1999-11-19
I downloaded and installed the i686-pc-linux-gnu-gnulibc2.1 version of Seti@home text version for my Pentium II i686 PC running Red Hat V6.0.
When I run setiathome, it connects with the ftp site, downloads a wu, but slows down until finally stalling completely at around 110K point. A second attempt stalled after 20K.
Have kernel debugging/reporting enabled, which is how I can see the download activity decreasing packet-wise (via pppd). MTU size is 576 so not too large for IP; can ping site fine when it stalls.
Any ideas on why this is occuring and how to fix? Was able to download a WU OK on my WIN95 PC, so the Seti server is ok.
