pacman -Syu freeze

Whenever i use this command, pacman starts to download the packages, but after some time pacman freezes. What can i do?

The newest pacman ist installed and sorry for my bad English.

Edit: It often happens, when a package is at 99%.

if you use a proxy, search the forum for the discussion about it

Re: pacman -Syu freeze

add to /etc/pacman.conf

XferCommand = /usr/bin/wget -c %u

Re: pacman -Syu freeze

On a really bad connection

XferCommand = /usr/bin/wget -c %u

is sometimes not enough. If so try:

XferCommand = /usr/bin/wget -t 0 -T 10 --passive-ftp -c -O %o %u

-t 0 means wget will try to reconnect forever. If you want wget to try only 10 times, change it to -t 10
-T 10 means that wget will wait 10 seconds before recognizing the connection as dead and making a new one (while -c tries to restart download from the last position)
This set of wget options worked great for me on a very bad wireless connection. Please try to experiment with proper number of seconds for a retry because you can make wget get crazy reconnecting all the time if you set it up for -t 1 or something like that (the server administrator will not be happy also...)
If you add -a /var/log/somewgetorpacmanlogfile then wget output will get logged too.
