SourceForge files for OpenFOAM v.1.6.x and v.1.7.x and older are missing (from location: http://sourceforge.net/projects/foam/files/foam/).

I get this error dialog:

"/tmp/mbzIQ9tB.bin.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Try again later, or contact the server administrator."

I was able to get them from Git repository, but without respective ThirdParty versions:

git clone git://repo.or.cz/OpenFOAM-1.6.x.git

Does anybody have a clue on why?

And where else can I get these older versions of ThirdParty sw?

Thanks in advance,
Fabio

Greetings Fabio and welcome to the forum!

The error you are getting is on your side, not on sourceforge's side. Namely, insufficient space or not enough permissions to write in "/tmp".

The old instructions for 1.6.x are still available here: http://www.openfoam.org/archive/1.6/download/git.php

(Almost) All of the old instructions are still available online: http://www.openfoam.org/download/archive.php

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno, and thanks for answering.

I gave all permissions on /tmp:

sudo chmod -R 777 /tmp

drwxrwxrwx 48 root root 4096 2012-02-07 11:34 tmp

But still getting dialog error:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/foam....gtgz/download
"/tmp/tX99VF23.bin.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.Try again later, or contact the server administrator."

http://sourceforge.net/projects/foam....gtgz/download
"/tmp/yufEAOLG.bin.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read. Try again later, or contact the server administrator."

Also, I still have 7.3G on that fs, think it should be enough:

fabio@fabio-desktop:~$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5 46G 37G 7.3G 84% /
none 1.7G 304K 1.7G 1% /dev
none 1.7G 156K 1.7G 1% /dev/shm
none 1.7G 224K 1.7G 1% /var/run
none 1.7G 0 1.7G 0% /var/lock
none 1.7G 0 1.7G 0% /lib/init/rw
/dev/sda1 938M 105M 786M 12% /boot
/dev/sdc1 932G 601G 332G 65% /media/Expansion Drive
/dev/sdb2 465G 362G 104G 78% /media/DATA

Thanks,
Fabio

Hi Fabio,

OK, then try this instead:
Code:
cd $HOME/OpenFOAM
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/foam/ThirdParty-1.6.General.gtgz?use_mirror=mesh -O ThirdParty-1.6.General.gtgz
Best regards,
Bruno

Great, it works!

Actually, it's my firefox with problems, all downloads work fine with Chromium.

Thanks again Bruno.
Best regards,
Fabio
