You have to change the $ARCH part of the link to whatever Architecture you are running. ppc,i386 or whatever arch you are using.

OK. I didn't do that but with i386 there it is identical to what's there. I know have 2 mirrors to check and both error out when they appear to stop getting much past 2.5 mb of the total 7.7 mb required. Odd because I manually d/l the darn thing and it IS 7.7 Mb.

Seems I need to figure out what is causing this problem.


You might try wget to download it. I did and was surprised how quick the mirror downloaded the file.

wget and the long url are on one line. The length of the url split the line.

wget http://ayo.ie.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/8/i386/freshrpms/RPMS/vlc-0.8.6d-1.fc8.i386.rpm
