    I can't understand why it just stops. That's the puzzle in my mind. I've had it happen a few times, but by and large when I wget a file, it comes down in one piece. I'll use wget -c if I have to stop the download myself for whatever reason and want to start it back later.

    Well is there anything else I can try? This has baffled everyone that I know who uses Linux .

    I finally gave up on getting ET and just downloaded it on my Mac and burnt it to a disk. However, I don't know how to install it/run it. I click on it and it starts to open in Kwrite, but after it does Kwrite fails to respond and must be closed...So what do I do?

    Pretty sure all you need to do is, (first to make sure), change its permissions...

    Code:
    chmod 777 et-linux-2.55.x86.run
    Then, to run...
    Code:
    ./et-linux-2.55.x86.run
    See if that does it...

    Nope, it says:
    Code:
    kbk@computer:/mnt/cdrom1$ chmod 777 et-linux-255x86.run
    chmod: changing permissions of `et-linux-255x86.run': Read-only file system
    kbk@computer:/mnt/cdrom1$ ./et-linux-255x86.run
    bash: ./et-linux-255x86.run: Permission denied

    You'll have to be root to change its permissions. If it still want open, run it as root.

    I did try that too, still showed the same thing:
    Code:
    root@computer:/mnt/cdrom1# chmod 777 et-linux-255x86.run
    chmod: changing permissions of `et-linux-255x86.run': Read-only file system
    root@computer:/mnt/cdrom1# ./et-linux-255x86.run
    bash: ./et-linux-255x86.run: Permission denied

    OK, I didn't notice that it was on cdrom, sorry... You'll have to copy it to your hard drive to make the necessary changes. You can't change permissions on an already burned cd file, not that I know of anyway.

    Worked, but then:
    Code:
    Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
    Xlib: No protocol specified
    
    /tmp/selfgz10122/setup.sh: line 143: 10255 Aborted                 "$setup" "$@" 2>>$NULL
    The setup program seems to have failed on x86/glibc-2.1

    Did it install and then give you that when you tried to run it?
