where to get the source? (other than svn)
« on: August 26, 2010, 07:43:42 pm »
Is there any other way to get the source that does not imply using svn? It's a huge download, and it would be convenient to get it through a download manager (and thus be able to start or resume it at will)

svn can resume whenever you want, too - it will always only download a delta, so if you stop after 10%, it will not try to get these 10% again.

no, there is no other way to get all the needed files.

how can I start and stop the svn download, then? I don't get that option either with the command line or the frontends...

CtrlC (Or CtrlBreak) if console, Esc or cancel if GUI.

and "svn update" to restart

And if you move in the directory tree u also can download a part of it.

Thanks everyone. I managed to take a third option,  browsing sourceforge's svn, and then downloading the source in a tarball in downthemall ( I say this in case anyone has problems with the svn client, as I did)
