I have been trying to install gnome 3 on my 10.10. I read this tutorial and am using jhbuild to install the 41 required packages. jhbuild apparently pulls the required packages using git and wget. I have been experiencing awful internet connectivity for the past couple of months. I have complained, but my ISP does not really bother, plus I don't get time to bother.
The point is whenever jhbuild comes around to pull down gtk+ 3.0(or some other package) using git, my internet connectivity goes down long enough to get a
From 192.168.1.1 icmp_seq=1130 Destination Host Unreachable From 192.168.1.1 icmp_seq=1131 Destination Host Unreachable
It invariably comes up after a few such lines, however jhbuild refuses to continue. I either have to manually restart the phase or wait till jhbuild returns an error. In both cases jhbuild starts downloading the files from scratch for that particular package. Does git not support download resuming?
Plus, I have installed gtk+ 3.0.9(the latest stable release), but jhbuild still starts downloading gtk+ 3.0 using git. Should I download the unstable release using git?
This is what I often end up with
