Sorry, I tried to do this on my Cacko Z with opera 7.25 and there isn't any way to do it, the file's code loads on the screen if you use automatic downloading.
When I tried typing in the filename after "save location", nothing happened.
The file is supposed to download to /hdd3/Documents/application/downloads
That directory was empty.
You are probably going to need to use a desktop PC and firefox or something like flashget (windows) flashgot (linux)
If you can get meanie's pdaxqtrom loaded, you can use firefox. I'm sure it would download files, although I haven't tried downloading stuff with firefox on my Zaurus.

I saw the suggestions about "right clicks" but I don't have a mouse on my Z.

Here's details of what happens when I attempt downloading a PM attachment:

The url for the attachment is the same whether I do a "Save as" bookmark, or just click on the link and fetch it from my history:

http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?act=A...ype=msg&id=4312

Then whether I do the following wget when logged in to the board in another window, or not logged in, I get the same results:
<blockquote>
bash-2.05# wget -O myfile.gz --http-user sdjf --http-passwd xxxx http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php\...g\&id=4312 --13:32:03-- http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?act=A...ype=msg&id=4312
=> `myfile.gz'
Connecting to www.oesf.org:80... connected!
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: unspecified [text/html]

0K .......... .......... ..
@ 10.96 KB/s

13:32:06 (10.92 KB/s) - `myfile.gz' saved [23550]

bash-2.05#
</blockquote>
Then I renamed the html file that was retrieved so I could view it in lynx:

bash-2.05# mv myfile.gz myfile.gz.html

and the board message in the file is:

<blockquote>
Board Message

Sorry, an error occurred. If you are
unsure on how to use a feature, or
don't know why you got this error
message, try looking through the help
files for more information.

The error returned was:

Sorry, some required files are
missing, if you intended to view a
topic, it's possible that it's been
moved or deleted. Please go back and
try again.

You are not logged in, you may log in below
</blockquote>
As I said above, got the same html file whether or not I was logged in. Is there a way to tweak wget or one of my browsers? I have no clue about the mime types on these files.

Thanks,
sdjf

P.S. when I click on link to "BB Code Help" I get an error 404 so sorry the display may not be quite right.

"tap and hold" is right click in some qtopia applications, such as netfront, but netfront doesn't download files anyway.
Fn + click works for right click, but this is on newer clamshells.
Can you mount meanie's pdaxqtrom cramfs/squashfs? It has firefox included in it.
Look under the X/QT forum for pdaxqtrom.

I'll try the tap-and-click thing in Opera later when I have more time, but I'm skeptical about getting anything other than binary on my screen.

Will menaie's firefox work on an sl5500 with sharp ROM? I don't have much room right now, but I could just yank out firefox I suppose...but it's also huge, isn't it? And I thought binaries were somehow hardware-dependent to some extent?

My primary SD card has a bad spot, and I haven't had time to finish backing it up and reformat it. When I do, I'll be able to make better use of it for installing new apps. But I'll try it...this download issue is annoying.

Thanks,
sdjf

Go here and look at paragraph 4
http://pdaxqtrom.thegrinder.ws/files/pdaxqtrom.html
meanie recommends X/QT for 5500 models as it uses less resources than pdaxqtrom.
Here's the thread for X/QT
http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=16209

This is getting off topic, look at that thread about X/QT.
It is slow on the newer clamshells, but firefox loaded in about a minute on mine when I had it installed.
I think you can mount it as a cramfs on a card.

Okay. Thanks for the specifics. Anything that will make PM attachment downloading possible.

See those ampersands (&)? When you use wget the shell will interpret them as run this job in the background. So basically what you're doing is essentially:

CODE
wget http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?act=Attach&


ie you're telling wget to get the file
CODE
http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?act=Attach
which of course doesn't exist.

The correct way to download using wget is to simply wrap the url in quotes:
CODE
wget "http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?act=Attach&type=msg&id=4312"

desertrat,
It was my understanding that preceding a special character with a backslash has the same effect as double quote marks, and they work that way in wget for me the rest of the time.

But I tried your suggestion, just in case I was wrong, and got the exact same error screen. Sigh.

Sorry, you're right, I overlooked that smile.gif

OK having re-read the thread it seems you're having trouble downloading a PM attachment using wget? Well I would assume (expect) that the forum software would check that you're logged in before allowing you to download a PM attachment, this is usually done through cookies. wget has no idea about what cookies your current browser session has stored, that's why you get a rather cryptic error message. You might try using the --load-cookies option (if you can persuade your browser to cough up a suitable file).

the server is sending the wrong content-type header, ie text/html instead of multipart or octet-stream ...

I'll try using the load cookies option, thanks.

I tried again in Opera, and it's clear to me as menaie points out, that it's a server issue. The same file downloads just fine (with a download dialogue box) from gmail when on the web in opera, and spews out onto my screen if I try to retrieve it from the PM it is in.

I can, btw, currently download zip attachments from forum posts without a problem, so I think there must be something different about the config for PMs and public posts.

I'm still looking into this now... I noticed this problem didnt occur until PHP got upgraded....

.bmp image/x-MS-bmp
.gif image/gif
.gz application/x-gzip
.hqx application/mac-binhex40
.htm application/octet-stream
.html application/octet-stream
.ico image/ico
.ipk application/x-tar
.jpeg image/jpeg
.jpg image/jpeg

Above is an example of some of the mime types listed which is the same pre and post PHP update.

I just clicked on a .jpg attachment and the Page Info window tells me the type is text/html. Somehow these mime types are not being passed to my browser (Firefox).

That's because IE is pathetically bugged in that it looks at the file .ext instead of acting on the mime-type.
