Cloning qt 5 source problem please help!

  • Hello everybody,

    I used to clone the repository with the following command line on my mac:
    git clone git:// qt5
    This used to work well but now I get an error errno=Operation timed out

    I checked my network, there is no proxy, I can ping without problem and I have tried https:// instead of git:// as well but with the same result.

    I'm running out of ideas please help me !
    Many thanks in advance!

    best regards

    Unless you made a typo here the address is : git://

  • Hi and thank you for your reply

    Yes you're right
    I tried that also, but I get the error:

    fatal: Unable to look up code (port 9418) (nodename nor servname provided, or not known)

    BTW, I just tried to clone the openssl repo and that worked correctly.

    any ideas?
