I cannot download any QT installation file, it's slow and fail after few minutes



  • Dear all,

    does anyone have same problem as me ?

    i try to download the latest QT 5.2.0, and:
    1- it's really, but REALLY slow, and
    2- it stop at 4 or 5 %. The maximum o got was 46 MB. I'm just short of 500MB !
    I also tried to download QT from my MAC, with the same result as windows.

    In order to test my connection, I tried to download other package like openCV, and i did get the 280 000 in 5 minutes.



  • help please. i can download any other large file or library (just got openCV, ogre3D, /kinectSDK1.8), so yes i DO have an internet connection :)

    but nothing from QT. is the server down ? my download just stop around 8MB, maximum i got was 46 MB.

    please help, i am wasting a day here :(, i cannot believe i am the only one trying to download QT today ?

    Cheers



  • someone ?

    this is insane, even the "small" 13 MB online windows installer is dowloading only 1.1 MB... please put it back online!

    Hi, and welcome to the Qt Dev Net.

    This seems to be a widespread issue at the moment, caused by mirrors with poor performance. See http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/36284/ for a workaround.

    P.S. This is a forum, not a chat room. It is normal not to receive a reply within an hour.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Please don't bump your own thread so frequently.

    There's seems to be a mirror issue. Click on the info link besides the installer your interested in, it will bring a list of mirrors and try another one



  • Thank you.

    I do know very well what is a Forum, I am in a VERY urgent need of that build. Each post added new value to avoid useless question like : did you try to download any other build, or is your router plugged-in ?

    Also, thank to those posts and to you, I eventually got my answer.

    Thank you JKSH.

    You're welcome. I'm glad to hear that you've resolved your issue.



  • Over a year later and this is still a problem. If it wasn't for the fact that I need Qt for my studies I would never touch it. I've always had issues. Or it doesn't compile or the app doesn't compile and now it is I cannot even download and install the stupid thing. If I don't pass my exam I will choose another subject. I just simply had enough of this rubbish.

    Hi,

    [quote author="wlottering" date="1421574589"]I cannot even download and install the stupid thing.[/quote]The easiest way is download it reliably is:

    Go to the "downloads page":http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/44632.

    Click "View All Downloads".

    Use a download accelerator (like "DownThemAll!":https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/downthemall/ for Firefox) to get an Offline installer.

    The download accelerator will download from multiple mirrors, improving your download speed.

    Alternatively, you could talk to your lecturer or classmates and get an installer from them.
