#31850 closed defect (fixed)

dialog: 20111020 can't be retrieved... (no working http mirror)

Reported by: Joe.Rohde@… Owned by: jyrkiwahlstedt

Component: ports Version: 2.0.3

Port: dialog

Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

On a 10.7 system 'sudo port upgrade dialog' causes:

  --->  Computing dependencies for dialog
  --->  Fetching archive for dialog
  --->  Attempting to fetch dialog-1.1-20111020_0.darwin_11.x86_64.tgz from http://packages.macports.or
g/dialog
  --->  Fetching dialog
  --->  Attempting to fetch dialog-1.1-20111020.tgz from http://gentoo.arcticnetwork.ca/distfiles/

The first fetch (dialog-1.1-20111020_0.darwin_11.x86_64.tgz) is fine, the other fetch: (dialog-1.1-20111020.tgz) fails on this and every other site it tries to fetch from.

Today I can't seem to find a dist site that has the file at all, last night I saw several, and the files were '.tar.gz' instead of .tgz.

Replying to Joe.Rohde@…:

The first fetch (dialog-1.1-20111020_0.darwin_11.x86_64.tgz) is fine,

You mean: the archive couldn't be fetched, and that's not a problem because MacPorts will then proceed to try to fetch the source and build it.

the other fetch: (dialog-1.1-20111020.tgz) fails on this and every other site it tries to fetch from.

For me it went through dozens of gentoo mirror sites, failing to find the file at any of them, before finally succeeding in downloading the file from ftp://invisible-island.net/dialog/dialog-1.1-20111020.tgz. But if your network, like the one our distfiles mirror is connected to, does not allow you to do ftp traffic, then you won't be able to download that.

We should add a working http mirror to the port, and remove the gentoo mirror group from it, which clearly doesn't have the file anywhere.

Seems right. I was going to note that it can be retrieved from ftp://invisible-island.net/dialog/ and that site was probably just not available to me at the initial time I tried the update.
