picture.png.part is driving me crazy
I installed openssh-server, because I did not manage to get vsftpd to run. I just want to upload some pictures to a web site.
I tried the scp commands, but I ran into trouble. It looked as if I was always mistyping my password (and I'm positive I wasn't).
So I decided to use Konqueror. Only for this, I needed an ftp program.
With openssh-server, Konqueror can see the files, and some got uploaded. I have 2 windows of Konqueror opened, and I just drag and drop what I want to put on the server. But some pictures just don't get through.
The most irritating thing, is that it looks as though the picture is getting through. I wait for the countdown to finish. (I have a slow connection). And only then, I get a message saying it could not be done. Instead of getting "picture.png" I get "picture.png.part" on the server.
The directory is wide opened (chmod 777), there is plenty of space on the server... Why, oh why, can I only get these .part to upload?
I tried to rename them, removing the ".part", but it does not work. They get nearly nearly there, but not quite. For example, one picture is 932K and the corresponding ".part" is 932K. So if there is a bit missing, it really cannot be a large chunk...

The result of the "make" command:
- Sitting bored in front of a computer
- Watching abstruse output scrolling upwards too fast to be read
- And waiting for something to go wrong
