Similar to a previous post
while getting headers nget is killed.
After doing: nget -g <group> -i -r <regexp>
it would get begin retreiving headers then be killed.
(e.g. Retrieving headers 18687179-19232729 :
386119/545551/545551 70% 31944B/s 27m27sKilled)
Depending how many other processes are running it
would progress to different points, but always be killed.
The above example is with as much possible being killed.
Sadly I do not have the option of increasing the
available physical memory as this particular machine is
somewhat old and has a 64M cap. Brief system specs
are P200MMX 64MB (60476k swap space) Slackware
Linux 9.1 (2.4.22).
I have updated to the current ver of nget (nget v0.27)
and running nget with a minimal set of other processes.
Smaller groups are not a problem, however recently ISP
outsourced usenet service and the current service has a
30day+ retention for some groups so there are quite a
few headers to download.
Any suggestions? Is there a way to download headers
in lumps avoiding this that I missed in the manpage?
The -x is not an option either as the server does not
support it. Any ideas are welcome.
