Huge download/update problem with Qt SDK?



  • Hi,

    Whoever supervises the Qt SDK mirrors can you guys not get good mirrors so that download and updates be done without huge hassle?

    When I was downloading the installer file it would only download 3 mb instead of full installer file.

    Now I am trying to update the sdk and it wouldn't complete. I have tried several times. I have let it run for hours now and it is yet not complete.

    When I download Google Android SDK it gets downloaded with 1 Mbps whereas Qt SDK is downloaded with say 50 kbps speed if it ever is able to complete the download.

    My experience with downloading and maintaining Qt SDK has been nothing but atrocious.

    I empathize with the challenges you face in getting a good download experience. I face the same issues with mirror reliability, so I made this tool to work around the issue -- see if it helps you: https://forum.qt.io/topic/43349/slow-downloads-with-the-online-installer-try-this-tool/

    This forum is mainly utilized by other Qt users like you and I, who don't have the authority to make infrastructure decisions. Your message is better directed towards those who do have such authority; I recommend you subscribe and post to the Interest mailing list.
