Salome-Meca 2021: Download fails

Hello,

I tried to download the installation file for Salome-Meca 2021 several times. Every download attempt terminated after downloading a part (2.5-3.4GB) of the file. I used different browsers under Windows (Firefox, Chrome, Edge), Linux (Firefox) and macos (Safari).

Any idea how to get the file?

Best regards

Michael

Re: Salome-Meca 2021: Download fails

Hello,

Yes, sometimes download fails for no particular reason. I solved my problem with an auto-restart of my downloading process.
You should do so on linux : wget -nc -L URL_FILE

@APereira

'wget' did the trick !

Thank you very much. There might be an issue on the server side.

Official guide on the download page describes the procedure to download the file with a web browser:

Dowload the salome_meca 2021 container (use the right click and "save as" )

This did not work for me. I tried it more then 10 times. Maybe the admins could check that on the server side.

Hello,

Yes for sure, I also tried with the way they recommand but it crashs all the time. So I used "wget" with option to restart when it fails smile

Re: Salome-Meca 2021: Download fails

I have been trying to download the container image for last 4 days without success. I use wget -c by default to download large files. But in this case the connection gets reset automatically after a few minutes. So in total I now have about 3.3 GB in 4 days. There is definitely some issue with the file server. I hope the admin looks into this issue.

Re: Salome-Meca 2021: Download fails

I simply used the Opera browser. When the download stops , i click "restart" and it automatically restarts from the interrupion point.

Re: Salome-Meca 2021: Download fails

Restarting from that point is not an issue. wget -c does the same thing and restarts the download from the point it interrupted. But the main issue is server connection gets lost every time after a few minutes. Even the download speed is very low. As a result with low speed and incremental download I could manage only 3.5 GB so far.

Re: Salome-Meca 2021: Download fails

Have a look at the screenshot attached. The download has stopped at 73 %. It will remain so for a few hours now. Even if I force quit and start, the result is same.

Re: Salome-Meca 2021: Download fails

hello

probably due to a bad internet connection i have almost NEVER been able to download such a large file a the salome_meca one

in the browser there should be a function named "Copy link location" or something similar on a right click on the Title

then i paste this link location as an argument to wget

with the current link this gives

wget https:**www.code-aster.org/FICHIERS/singularity/salome_meca-lgpl-2021.0.0-0-20210601-scibian-9.sif

(replace ** with //)

and wget seems much faster than a browser download

Re: Salome-Meca 2021: Download fails

Dear All,

Since it was released, the SM-2021 container download fails repeatedly, and manual restart seems to be the only option, whether downloaded in browser or using wget. Download stops at about every 100MB or so. Hope developers would look into the  server issue soon. However, one good news: there is another container (Courtesy Mario and Nicola) at

https: //github.com/emefff/Code-Aster-MPI-in-Singularity-of-SM2021.

The advantages are:
1. Download is blazing fast
2. One gets MPI version of Code-aster (with PETSC) in addition to the default stable and old-stable versions.

Note that the container needs to be renamed after download as discussed in
https:__//code-aster.org/forum2/viewtopic.php?id=25956&p=2

Best regards

Re: Salome-Meca 2021: Download fails

Hi,
I have downloaded salome_meca-lgpl-2021.0.0-0-20210601-scibian-9.sif a couple of times. I get md5sum
c34331b7c3161021cb20731cd9a16b16 which is different from on the code-aster.org download page
65e153eaf43edcd3b671d41194936f53.
-Is my file corrupt? -is the checksum on the download page wrong? -someone else experience the same?

Re: Salome-Meca 2021: Download fails

OK, I assumed that after a while.
Check also
"salome_meca-lgpl-2021.0.0-1-20210811-scibian-9.sif" under installation. Should be 
"salome_meca-lgpl-2021.0.0-0-20210601-scibian-9.sif" I think.
