    Default [pts220,Ubuntu910amd64] wget/curl: no URL specified!

    Hi! First post here, sadly for reporting problems with Bardu. But hopefully it will get resolved.

    I use Ubuntu 9.10 amd64 with PTS 2.2.0. I had 2.0.0 installed bedfore and had many problems installing tests with it as well (very slow downloads for specviewperf, many tests would not install correctly - mplayer-base, yafray...) but lets take it one step at a time.

    Right now I'm plagued by wget/curl not getting the file URL. If I try to download these files manually there are no complications. There seems to be a problem with how PTS passes the argument to wget/curl.

    Hi bartman,

    You just managed to spot a regression in 2.2, but it's now fixed in Git

    The easy workaround would be to change your PromptForDownloadMirror option in your user-config.xml file back to FALSE, which will then automatically pick a mirror, or to upgrade against Git master.
