### cannot create a clone of lux

Hello,

I'm trying to compile luxrender and I can't get the lux clone :

I use TortoiseHg 64 bits on my x64 Windows station.

I right clik on my "luxSource" directory and clik on clone :
source path : http://src.luxrender.net/lux/
destination path : E:\dt\luxSource\lux

And when clicking on clone, Tortoise will work a few minutes and then give me an error :

Code: Select all
requesting all changesadding changesetsadding manifestsadding file changestransaction abort!rollback completedpatch cannot be decoded[command interrupted]

It's around the chunck 4038 if that help.

and the last line I got on the .hg\store\journal file is :

data/MacOS/openexr-1.4.0/lib/libIlmImf.a.i

I have tried several times so I made a mistake or there is something wrong with mercurial.

I have tryed and tryed, so I think about something other.

Is there a way to done a part clone ? getting only one directory each a time.

Or is there a way to download the Bzip2 archive in http://src.luxrender.net/lux/ and tell to tortoise where it is, and it would not download all necessary parts.

Anyway, I will keep hope It would success !

There is now also a mirror (2 hour lag) apparently: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=4604

Yes !

It worked fine for me, why we should not add the mirror in the wiki ?

But please don't post the same comment in multiple threads as it will result in rather inefficient and confusing communication.

Yes, I would have remove this one, and I forget to done it.

I think it would be more relevant on second thread.
