}This is a known problem. Uhm. Currently being sent to
}the proper authorities. I personally think they should
}just drop the 'ftp:// and use ftp.netbsd.org. (looks
}like a cut and paste accident to me).
Ok. I'll just ftp them by hand to the disk I guess... tomorrow, when
ftp.netbsd.org is back up.
}> Seems to be unhappy:
}> Status: Failed
}> Command: /usr/bin/ftp -a 'ftp://ftp.netbsd.org//pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-1.4_ALPHA/
}just noticed the second goof up here ^^ should only be /
In normal use '//' collapses to '/', and this would seem to be true
with NetBSD's ftp, as well. (This is not true of URLs grabbed with lynx
via http:// with '//' immediately following the hostname.) Anyway, it
should probably be fixed.
}Cool someone close that also plays with these things. ;)
No fair, you can tell where I am, but @home can be in a much larger
