I know this comes up way to often, but I am stumped. How do I get a
proper download URL from github for boinc? On the release page
when I use a browser (e.g. Firefox) to d/l the tar.gz for
client_release/7.8/7.8.6 I get the file:
the same URL with wget (right-click, copy link location) gives:
The URL Firefox displays in the status bar to click on to d/l is:
If I extract the URL Firefox ended up using in its download progress window:
I get a file named simply "7.8.6"
If I use:
the downloaded file is as expected:
Why does this have to be so freaking obscure? Obviously, "7.8.6.tar.gz"
is not usable in .info for SBo automated tools. Looking at other github
examples was of no help - lots of 'ERROR 404: Not Found.' trying to link
to the full file name directly.
What do I put in boinc.info for a download URL for release posted on github?
