Is there a downloader in the SL6 repos that can handle multiple connections and mirrors?

uGet surfaces at the top of search results, at a quick glance though I'm not sure what the build requires are.

uGet seems to be the stock solution for Linux, however requires gtk+3.0 in the first instance to compile.

uGet is a frontend for aria2, autoconf though requires a version newer than gettext-0.18.

With some coding I guess curl will download multi-part using the --range option, there is also pySmartDL.

Apart from which DownThemAll! Firefox addon is a quick solution.
