Description

I recently tried to download drivers for my video card using wget, however the download quickly finished and was only a few bytes instead of the full executable. As it turns out, to download drivers from the AMD website the connection must be referred by http://support.amd.com to download properly.

  • The is the incorrect wget command to download from the AMD website:
    wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/firepro/15.201.2401-whql-firepro-retail.exe
    
  • The correct way to download from the AMD website:
    wget --referer=http://support.amd.com http://www2.ati.com/drivers/firepro/15.201.2401-whql-firepro-retail.exe
