Date: Thu, 20 Nov 2014 14:44:56 -0500 From: Jill Tyrell <jt@...dlytowers.org> To: sabotage@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Re: Packages with bad URL like github This is a known problem, yes. This is the suggested workaround: 1. Check that BUTCH_DOWNLOAD_TEMPLATE is defined in /src/config: export BUTCH_DOWNLOAD_TEMPLATE="$K/butch_download_template.txt" (It should be, but older systems may not have this set.) 2. Install curl, which will also pull in libressl, ca-certificates and zlib. 3. Add 'USE_CURL=1' to your shell environment. I feel curl should be added to /src/pkg/stage1 and that wget support be dropped entirely or punted over to USE_WGET, myself.
