My ibook won't/can't download glibc-2.3.4-branch-update-20041102.patch.bz2

Every time I try and download it, it charges down fine until about 800kb, then just halts at 0kb/sec.

I have tried from gentoo and OSX. I have tried curl, wget, Safari, Camino, Firefox, lynx.
I have tried at least 5 different mirrors on different continents. I have tried resuming from different points, and saaving onto different filesystems. I have tried going through proxies, and NOT going through proxies.

I don't understand. I downloaded the firefox sources, and 3 different kernels all without hassle.

Aaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Someone, please save my sanity. Maybe some kind soul could split the file up for me so I could download it in small chunks? Please????

the problem can be the server, and not your machine.
try to fetch the file from another source, and eventually mv it manually to the dist dir.

But I *have* tried different servers - from different continents and I keep getting the same problem.

In fact, I'm starting to get paranoid that there's a conspiracy againt me installing any new version of glibc - I just tried downloading glibc-2.3.3.tar.bz2 and ran into the same problem as with the branch-update file!!

On the other hand, I just downloaded the firefox 1.0.2 sources just fine.

What the??? Maybe there is some strange issues with my ISP...
