Where to manually download hpkg files?


#1

Hello.

I have Haiku installed in Virtualbox. My internet connection on that machine is fairly spotty so it’s difficult to download larger packages via the haiku package manager.

When I go to the online HaikuDepot site and select download hpkg of an application I get an error and I can’t get it to download.
Here is the link I get http://buildmaster/haikuports/repository/master/x86_64/current/packages/qt5-5.11.2-4-x86_64.hpkg

Is this just me or is anyone else seeing this?

Thanks

Yes, it’s a known issue. @kallisti5 was looking into it … before other things came up. Dunno what the status is now.

  • Hairpin NAT is broken still on the server so HaikuDepot forms broken download url’s in some places (referencing internal urls’s)
  • You should be able to replace “buildmaster” in the URL with eu.hpkg.haiku-os.org and the link should work.
  • You also need to remove “repository” from the URL… less sure why that’s happening still.

Not sure why HaikuDepot is making so many assumptions there on path.

https://eu.hpkg.haiku-os.org/haikuports/master/x86_64/current/packages/qt5-5.11.2-4-x86_64.hpkg

You can navigate the package repositories here:

I’m still using the growing pains excuse :slight_smile:
