Hi there,
Is there a link to a downloadable zip version of EGit? I am unable to install using Help > Install New Software, because it keeps dropping the connection during the download.

Weirdly I have been able to install other plugins (from download.eclipse.org) in between repeated failed attempts to install egit...

Details:
Eclipse ver: Helios
Installer error message:
Unable to read repository http:/some path to a .jar
Read timed out

Hi Ilan Copelyn,

I am unable to install it using the update site. Will you please let me know what you did to get it installed?

I tried with the following repositories,
http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates
http://download.eclipse.org/egit/updates-nightly

It will be good if you share what you did...

Thank you,
Ganeshraj.S

Hi Ganeshraj

I had a range of network related problems. 2 main fixes were:
1. Manually configuring my DNS servers - I was getting intermittent DNS resolve failures when on DHCP
2. Trying at a less congested time of day - I was getting lots of connection reset by peer

One thing which is a bit sneaky is that if you have DNS errors, they don't appear as such in the "Error log" view - only when you look at the .log.

So look at the actual .log (on the title bar of the "Error log" view, click the "Open log" button - second from right, next to minimise button), and check to see whether you have similar log messages to the following:

1) DNS lookup prob:
!ENTRY org.eclipse.equinox.p2.repository 2 0 2011-02-01 19:31:09.708
!MESSAGE Connection to http://m2eclipse.sonatype.org/sites/m2e-extras/p2.index failed on m2eclipse.sonatype.org. Retry attempt 0 started
!STACK 0
java.net.UnknownHostException: m2eclipse.sonatype.org


2) Connection reset probs:
!ENTRY org.eclipse.equinox.p2.repository 2 0 2011-02-01 10:48:24.018
!MESSAGE Connection to http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?format=xml& ;file=/releases/helios/201006230900/aggregate/&protocol= http&countryCode=za&timeZone=2&format=xml failed on Connection reset. Retry attempt 0 started
!STACK 0

You can find the last successful build of EGit here: https://hudson.eclipse.org/hudson/job/egit/lastSuccessfulBui ld/artifact/org.eclipse.egit-updatesite/target/site/

There you can download the files as a zip file. This url is also valid as update site.
