Hi KM Users & Happy New Year To All smiling smiley

Thank you for working on KM Goanna ;)

First of all, I'm on dialup.
I managed to dl 3.4.2.01012018 & so far so good.

The problem is that I've tried 3 times to dl 3.4.2.01062018 & the first 2 times the dl stopped at 51% with my dl manager that I always use & the 3rd dl was thru
KM 3.4.2.01012018 dl manager & the dl also stopped so, I'm rather at my wit's end.

I have been using KM for years & I truly like this browser alot smiling smiley

I'm sure KM Goanna is gonna be a popular browser also.

How to get the dl is my problem so, I'm asking for help in this matter.

Thank you in advance,
Happy.KM.User

01/10/2018=>What a wonderful group of folks we have here at KM Forumssmiling smiley
I truly thank you all for your responses. You must know that being on dialup truly tests my patience. For the lack of $$$ prevents me from going faster;)
Thanks & I've taken notes on all your suggestions.

Hello @Happy.KM.user
Happy New year 2018 to you too!
Well, I posted long time ago that KMeleon 76RC2 pro portable by@rodocop was the only browser that allowed me to download files from a large distance WiFi hotspot, probably it will help you. smiling smiley

Edited: KM76RC2 is able to download entire KMGoanna with dialup, tested and verified with one old dialup 14kb/s modem/fax.

You may try removing the "s" from https://... (i.e. using legacy http protocol to see if you can download it)

If developers permit, can a user split the current build in to parts and upload in custom servers so that Dial-up users can be helped??

I don't deny people doing so, just be in mind that such things may not be up-to-date.

Impure - I thank You to India for Your effort and Your compassion with the less fortunate members of this community. People in the towns of developed countries tend to forget that many people in rural areas have no DSL.


And I hope You do not mind my next comment:


All are reminded that non official sources must be virus scanned after download and before use.

p.s. I always added that when I uploaded an unofficial version.




roytam1's test version http://kmeleonbrowser.org/forum/read.php?19,143253 - is my current fad.

@Impure thank you for your good action! smiling smiley
@guenter, thank you too for your kind words. smiling smiley

I wanted to test these facts by myself, and I have downloaded an entire 49Mb file with KMeleonRC2-pro with an old modem/fax, 14Kb/s maximum speed. However, I was unable to download it with KMeleon Goanna, same behaviour as wrote by @Happy.KM.User at first post. I wonder why! mad smiley

Interesting... Perhaps one of the download prefs, Rodocop likes to tweak and 'improve' default settings too cool smiley If you look into about:config of both browsers and filter for "download", perhaps you find an interesting difference? But of course, can be all sorts of other reasons too.

I tested the fact with KMeleon75 too and I was able to download the file.
Probably it can be other reasons imho, as also you wrote. confused smiley

@Happy.KM.User

You can download the current release using wget for Windows (even in Windows9x).
If required, I can upload the current release on a non-https server.
Need?

Also, I can lay out wget for Windows (if this is a problem).

Hi hermes,
I found WinWGet@PortableApps.COM & I'll download it & give it a whirl. I still have the above suggestions so, all of this should keep me busy for a whilesmiling smiley
I will call on you if I run into any kind of a disaster.

Thank you.

@Happy.KM.user,
you can see the network activity to discover what processes are using the net (e.g. svchost.exe of windows update, antivirus updates and so forth) with the "resource monitor" of Windows. You also can disable the service or kill the program that reduces the speed if you are downloading other more important software at the moment. Good luck! smiling smiley

@Happy.KM.user,
I have discovered this KMeleon site:
http://kmeleonbrowser.org/wiki/ExternalApplications#downloads
after search the forum and found this thread:
http://kmeleonbrowser.org/forum/read.php?1,98390

There you can find the Free Download Manager, with some versions available.
This is the link: http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/download.htm
I hope this will definitely help you!
smiling smiley

Edit: I recommend you the Lite version, FDM 3.9.7 Lite Version for Windows XP and higher (5.6 MB), I have tested it and it works really nice with dialup connections.

Hi J.G.
I've now added FDM Lite Portable to my dl managers collection. It seems I can
never have too many downloaders. Sooner or later one or the other is going to
work ;)
Thanks again.

Hi hermes
Well, "but you can try" sounds about right for me.
I've used the CMD a few yrs. back because my interest was peaked at the time but, I've gotten away from the console versions of anything.
GUI's have spoiled me but, there are a few advantages to knowing how to tap out on the console side of technology.
Thank you for your suggestion. It's appreciated smiling smiley

J.G.,
Actually I have KM Pro 76RC2 already installed but I usually always use one of my dl managers unless I get desperate or at my wits end and I didn't get to 76RC2 before my wits end arrived.
Your testing and info is good to know and thank you smiling smiley

Hi hermes,
Well I've been using WinWGet about a week now & I've decided that it's a keeper;)
Thanks so much for telling me about this app smiling smiley
