2014-05-19 14:29:22 -0500 asked a question wget refuses to work when trying to install Calibre on Fedora 20

I am trying to download the Calibre program. It says that it will work with Linux and supplies something to copy and paste in the command line. Here is what happens though.

[dmiller@localhost ~]$ sudo -v && wget -nv -O- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kovidgoyal/calibre/master/setup/linux-installer.py | sudo python -c "import sys; main=lambda:sys.stderr.write('Download failed\n'); exec(sys.stdin.read()); main()" [sudo] password for dmiller: wget: unable to resolve host address ‘raw.githubusercontent.com’ Download failed

It will not download it and I don't know why. l'm sure it is something easy and dumb but that is me. What can I do to fix this wget?

SOLVED! I just downloaded Chrome's offering for Fedora 64 bit and it works flawlessly so far.

I'm using Firefox for now. I just downloaded Chrome to see if it will work better. Thanks for the link. I'll check that out as well.

I am knew to Linux and Fedora 20 64 bit. I love everything about it except the fact that certain websites will not load at all. One biggie is MLB.com because I am a sports writer and need that website daily. Also the website of the comapny I work for will not load. Is there something I need to add like Java or Flash? Again... WAY new so please forgive my question. I cannot find an answer on a site that I can load.
