here is what I do.


git clone http://boinc.berkeley.edu/git/boinc-v2.git boinc_src_dir

download begins and ends with:

Cloning into 'boinc_src_dir'...
error: Unable to get pack index http://boinc.berkeley.edu/git/boinc-v2.git/objects/pack/pack-f001eaf2ec90f320f3567100aad08bc62eb17a3b.idx

error: Unable to get pack index http://boinc.berkeley.edu/git/boinc-v2.git/objects/pack/pack-d1b1af0f749240e1839cfb6f94e4d59147545f1c.idx

This is on an Ubuntu linux 12.04 LTS node.

TIA

I have similar problems when using the HTTP address under Windows. Using git://boinc.berkeley.edu/boinc-v2.git as the address, I have no trouble. What about you?

its worse:

git clone git://boinc.berkeley.edu/git/boinc-v2.git boinc_src_code
Cloning into 'boinc_src_code'...
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

I have checked firewall ports and those used by git are open.

Ageless,

Your "git clone git" got me thinking. If the "git clone http://....." command is using port 80 and I am certain it must than I could still have a problem in my firewall structure. I moved to another node and tried the "git clone http://..." and it failed, BUT your "git clone git://....." command worked as promised this time. I have no idea why the "git clone http://..." command fails.

Thanks for making me think.

That it worked the second time is because you now used the link I gave you, which misses the extra /git/ in the address.
Why the HTTP address doesn't work is something I don't know. I sent it off to the developers yesterday, and just did so again. Something for them to look into.
