Subject Re: [users@httpd] Failed downloads: "Could not get next bucket brigade"
Date Tue, 28 Nov 2006 21:13:17 GMT
try getting the file from a completely different machine, completely
different internet connection, etc. if THAT fails, then  its an apache
problem, or a problem on the Server-Side. does the file work if you
open it? does it pass md5 checks?
