Here's a no frills basic wget command. The url for the feed index is: http://www.zaurususergroup.org/feed
That shows you all the packages. You pick the name of what you want, and tack it on to the end of the above url. So, if I want hancompresenter_1.6-lite-1_arm.ipk, I would enter (all one one line):
Do not use wildcards...use the full url and package name.. Note the BBS software has screwed up my urls but they must be written out in full without any dots]
And away we go... There are lots of complicated options, like how to put the file in a different location. If I want something to go on my SD card, I would enter:
wget -P /mnt/card/ http://blablabla.ipk
No time to explain all the options but this should get you started. Here's proof it works:
# wget http://www.zaurususergroup.org/feed/hancom...-lite-1_arm.ipk
Connecting to www.zaurususergroup.org:80... connected!

Sorry SDJF, I'm feeling disappointed now! I must have misled you.
I was talking about the ZUG Downloads not the feed. The feed is now back up in operation from the link on the ZUG main page, thanks again admin(s)
. Even when it wasn't, it was possible to do as you explain and wget individual files. I suppose you might be interested in this script for downloading the whole feed and for then keeping it updated by simply downloading the changes? I take no credit for it I grabbed it from one of the Cacko threads and edited it to use on the ZUG feed.
Thanks for your examples, they'll help me make more sense of wget.
What I'd like for Christmas is for the admins to restore the downloads, a collection of all sorts of roms, packages, scripts and generally interesting and useful stuff for the Zs!
Actually my birthday is in August so I'd rather have the downloads back before then for a present!!
