I don't know what to tell you. I just cloned into a fresh folder right now.

Code: Select all

$ git clone git://free-cad.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/free-cad/free-cad freecad
Cloning into 'freecad'...
remote: Counting objects: 22199, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (9561/9561), done.
remote: Total 22199 (delta 16608), reused 17544 (delta 12568)
Receiving objects: 100% (22199/22199), 84.31 MiB | 1.23 MiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (16608/16608), done.
It was really slow though compared to usual.

Why don't you try the Github mirror instead? It's at https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD_sf_master

I think Sourceforge servers are located in California. Depending on where in the world you are, the connexion might be bad.

Yes, the github mirror works. Thanks.
