09:05 AM andypugh: Does anyone know how to get the new packages _off_ of the buildbot and on to my local machine?
09:10 AM andypugh: I have been at this all day.
09:25 AM TurBoss: I don't know if can help or go worse but when I have wierd issues with the buildbots I just delete worker-slave build directory and force the build 😕
09:26 AM andypugh: My problem is just getting all the files without typing every name in by hand
09:28 AM andypugh: I might have found one of the problems, the wget command I found in the net had -E in it, so plain text files (dsc, changes) were being downloaded, renamed to .html and then deleted because they didn’t match the accept list.
09:31 AM andypugh: (What dds to the frustration: when I say “all day” I mean “all of the day I took off work just to do this”)
09:32 AM TurBoss: how can I help?
09:33 AM TurBoss: are the steps somewhere abailable?
09:33 AM TurBoss: * are the steps somewhere available?
09:43 AM andypugh: I doubt you can help, as I am donwloading to my local machine.
09:45 AM andypugh: it’s just annoying to get files with wget from an html archive
09:46 AM andypugh: and wget does wierd things, like spidering back _up_ the tree to parent directiories
09:51 AM andypugh: I think that running wget -N --convert-links --random-wait -r -nH -np --cut-dirs=2 -e robots=off --accept "deb,changes,dsc,xz" http://buildbot.linuxcnc.org/release/dists/buster/2.8-rtpreempt/ for each OS / version is working.
