Can't Get Daily Build Downloads

Post by Jorpho »

My apologies if this issue has already been addressed; I could not find something appropriate with the Search function.

I found a bug or two, and was about to download the daily snapshot to test them again, but http://www.scummvm.org/daily/rpm/ and http://www.scummvm.org/daily/debian/ are both dead links. While http://www.scummvm.org/downloads/scummvmwin32.exe works, the download is extremely slow and keeps cutting off.

Is there another mirror for daily builds available? Or is the ScummVM.org server really busy during most hours of the day?

I've been having the same problems. Seems to be a problem with SourceForge these days

Yes, I've encountered a few slow connections recently. The best way I found to get around these problems was to use wget (see here or here) instead of an internet browser, it seems to be more robust.

Yes I have been having the same problem here as well trying to download the daily CVS builds.

I have found that the only way to get it to download is to use getright and pause and resume the download a few times until I get a complete download.

Okay, but what about the Linux builds? Are there still new RPMs daily?

I don't know the answer to that but surely any standard Linux distro will be able to build it from the source tarball quite easily?
