[SOLVED] Aria2 downloader support for linux

Postby telnetuserid » 04.10.2016, 06:47

I've been using wsusoffline to download windows updates from Linux. So far so good.

The only thing I miss on Linux is integration with Aria2. Windows version has a cmd script to tell wsusoffline to use aria2 instead of wget for downloading updates.

It would be great to port aria2 support to Linux in addition to wget.

Thanks. It seems that I need to do it myself instead of relying on non-existent maintainer.

I may be able to make shell script adjustment and send you the patch.

What's the best way to send patch? It seems that wsusoffline trac doesn't allow opening new ticket and creating a new account.

Is it ok to just attach a patch against trunk as post attachment?

Someone has done the job. I can now use aria2 instead of wget by putting this line in the ./sh/preferences.bash file
Code: Select all
supported_downloaders="aria2c"


I think this case is solved.
