a problem with using "wget"

when I enter:
wget -r ftp://ftp.lfs-matrix.net/pub/lfs/lfs-packages/6.1.1/

I can only get some unusefull symlink like this:

Creating symlink ftp.lfs-matrix.net/pub/lfs/lfs-packages/6.1.1/util-linux-2.12q-umount_fix-1.patch -> ../../conglomeration/util-linux/util-linux-2.12q-umount_fix-1.patch

Creating symlink ftp.lfs-matrix.net/pub/lfs/lfs-packages/6.1.1/util-linux-2.12q.tar.bz2 -> ../conglomeration/util-linux/util-linux-2.12q.tar.bz2

Creating symlink ftp.lfs-matrix.net/pub/lfs/lfs-packages/6.1.1/vim-6.3-lang.tar.bz2 -> ../conglomeration/vim/vim-6.3-lang.tar.bz2


but "wget ftp://ftp.lfs-matrix.net/pub/lfs/lfs-packages/6.1.1/autoconf-2.59.tar.bz2"
then I can get the software successfully.

what's wrong?
hello. :)

If I am correct wget is for individual files. Like you would put in each wget link individual link.

Use mirror mode with wget to grab a whole directory.
Though I'm unsure how well that works with ftp.

If it doesn't work, then try a real ftp client and use mget.
