FYI it looks like the download links aren't 100% correct. The redirect on Downloads doesn't appear to be working right and send you to the files section but not the correct file. I'm looking into it.

Thanks, Alex

It's not a bug on our end, something is wrong with Sourceforge. Clicking any download link in sends me back to

Older versions seem to be working. Can anyone else confirm?

Thanks, Alex

Keywords: sourceforge added

the error on the SF page I get is a red popup window in the top right:

The "/7.9/osgeo-live-7.9...9/osgeo-live-7.9.iso" file could not be found or is not available. Please select another file.

and then it kicks you back to the main files/ version listing.

You can replace the mirror argument in the URLs to need bash the skylink mirror too much.

A list of mirror short names can be found on the SF wiki:

#sourceforge on Freenode: business hours are approximately 12:00 to 21:00 UTC, excluding
weekends and holidays. Currently, it is Fri Mar 14 23:00:27 2014 UTC.

<zeromuisa> this seems to happen with some regularity for large files, usually
immediately after business hours on friday

The above direct-to-mirror links don't work for me; same trouble. :-/

fwiw, if we can get it to work I'd suggest to use "&use_mirror=colocrossing".

Note Alex would have to modify the redirect URL on download.osgeo, since the apache sites-avail conf files aren't group owned.

Hopefully Sourceforge sorts itself out in 6-12 hours and we don't have to do anything.

strangely, the above direct links work for me via wget but not the browser. more experimentation needed...

The sourceforge downloads seem to be working now.
