must include --passive-ftp when downloading in .b0x files

Post by epoch »

When a .b0x update script needs to download from an ftp site (most noteably the alsa update), its important to include --passive-ftp in the wget command. Otherwise on address translated networks, you'll have the very annoying result of

Code: Select all

This will enable ALSA sound and 5.1 optical audio output (ALSA 0.9.2)
Getting ALSA source 
           => `alsa-driver-0.9.2.tar.bz2'

I'm going to write a wrapper around wget to take care of this automatically for now, but it would be nice to see fixed in a later revision
