Problems downloading source

Post by Bugbear »

Hi, long time elite player, new oolite player, first time poster (on this bbs anyway)..

I'm trying to download the Oolite source files because I'd like to try my hand at making some modifications but I'm having problems.

I've downloaded the Subversion application and have attempted to run the command that (I believe) is supposed to download the source files to my computer:

svn checkout svn://thor.acedragon.co.uk/svn/repos/trunk oolite

I'm getting this error:
svn: Can't connect to host 'thor.acedragon.co.uk': A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.

I have tried pinging thor.acedragon.co.uk but am not getting any response.

As I am a total NOOB at this, I'm sure I've made a mistake. Any helpers?

Hi bugbear1973, a very big welcome to the Oolite boards! :D

Good to see you taking an interest in the workings so soon after starting to play. Giles (aegidian) had trouble with thor a while back, you should find the source files here:
http://svn.berlios.de/viewcvs/oolite-linux/trunk/
Have fun! :wink:
Very funny, Scotty, now beam down my clothes...
