Edison Toolchain Download stops

Hello,

facing the following problem. For first steps with Arduino IDE installing the "Intel i686 Boards" is necessary. This download fails, as can be seen in the screenshot.

Also direct download of the Toolchain from the URL fails (no further progress than shown here):

Both stop at about 7MB. Other Boards can be installed without any problem.

Seems the Intel-Download-Server doesn't work properly.

Thanks for assistance to get it installed.

Hello Andras,

 

 

Thank you for contacting Intel Technical Support.

 

Your request has been received and is currently being investigated.

 

We will get back to you as soon as possible.

Hello Andras,

 

 

Thank you for your patience.

 

 

We tested by installing the package "Intel i686" and it installed with no issues.

 

What version are you trying to install?

 

Also, make sure you are not behind a firewall, which can restrict downloading package. If so, disable the firewall and try again.

 

 

Regards,

hi octavian,

i was reading your comment and removed the firewall, and i still can't install the i 686

Do you have any idea what is the problem?

---------------- update -----------

I got it working.

Arduino version 1.8.5

Download the edison board package: https://github.com/01org/corelibs-edison/archive/1.6.2+1.0.tar.gz https://github.com/01org/corelibs-edison/archive/1.6.2+1.0.tar.gz

Download the edison tools http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24806/eng/edison-toolchain-windows-1.6.2-1.0.zip https://downloadmirror.intel.com/24806/eng/edison-toolchain-windows-1.6.2-1.0.zip

unzip into temp location

In the following operations, create missing directories as needed. The version directories (1.6.2+1.0) are needed but are not in the downloaded files.

.

create: \AppData\Local\Arduino15\packages\Intel\hardware\i686\1.6.2+1.0

copy contents of the board package into the \AppData\Local\Arduino15\packages\Intel\hardware\i686\1.6.2+1.0 directory

create: C:\Users\wheat\AppData\Local\Arduino15\packages\Intel\tools\core2-32-poky-linux\1.6.2+1.0

copy contents of the edison tools into this folder :

Start arduino and set the board to edison.

Load the blink example and save to your workbook

compile verify

upload

See the blinky lights :-)

--------------------- for history sake this is some of my investigation\digging results that led me to the success above.

So I just hit this same exact issue.

I was able to download the tool file from the URL by changing the HTTP:// HTTP:// to HTTPS:// HTTPS:// but that didnt make the edison appear in the board manager.

I looked in the arduino code for the packager https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/blob/2bfe164b9a5835e8cb6e194b928538a9093be333/app/test/cc/arduino... Arduino/package_index.json at 2bfe164b9a5835e8cb6e194b928538a9093be333 · arduino/Arduino · GitHub and found this line;

"url": "https://github.com/01org/corelibs-edison/archive/1.6.2%2B1.0.tar.gz https://github.com/01org/corelibs-edison/archive/1.6.2+1.0.tar.gz",

(from this page http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=393434.0 Add new board without Board Manager on IDE 1.6.8 i tried to figure out how to manually install a board rather than use the board manager)

I downloaded that file, expanded it and placed it in my sketchbook folder.. like this

{sketchbook folder}

|hardware

|intel

|x686

|boards.txt and all the other files..

I started Arduino, opened the board manager and it did some stuff.. Now I "see" edison in the boards list !! woho.. I win.. sorta..

So far Im still not able to compile successfully but that might be my system setup or something to do with the tools file that triggered this adventure.. Im still digging

Also, I just read that there is a specific version of Arduino that comes with the edison board already configured, im going to guess its version 1.6.10 based on some pictures of working setups that I have seen. I might try downloading that older version tonight.

good luck.

Maybe this will give intel devs a clue to whats up.

Hello Andras,

 

 

Thank you for your patience.

 

 

We also found that the download issue could be caused by proxies.

 

If you have any proxies activated or a VPN connection please remove them and try again.

 

 

Hope this helps.

 

 

Regards,

I tested this and that is not the issue.

The issue is with the file hosting. There seems to be an issue with the http server.

this is the code:

https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/blob/2bfe164b9a5835e8cb6e194b928538a9093be333/app/test/cc/arduino... Arduino/package_index.json at 2bfe164b9a5835e8cb6e194b928538a9093be333 · arduino/Arduino · GitHub

{

"size": "56683094",

"checksum": "SHA-256:5a9a1b51f0fa18bf21e1dcf1332d34331dd435c5ca0d1fe008e68e13cb3255e5",

"host": "i686-mingw32",

"archiveFileName": "edison-toolchain-20150323-windows.zip",

"url": " http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24806/eng/edison-toolchain-windows-1.6.2-1.0.zip"

},

Note the URL http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24806/eng/edison-toolchain-windows-1.6.2-1.0.zip http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24806/eng/edison-toolchain-windows-1.6.2-1.0.zip

The URL will not download the file, or if it does it will take a very long time. The download took about 20 minutes on my computer just now.

The Arduino tool board manager download will time out in just a few minutes.

If you change that URL to the ssl url. (note the https) http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24806/eng/edison-toolchain-windows-1.6.2-1.0.zip https://downloadmirror.intel.com/24806/eng/edison-toolchain-windows-1.6.2-1.0.zip

the file will download correctly and quickly.

Im guessing this is an intermittent issue with the hosting server. Perhaps put in a call to the right support team and they can reboot it.

https:// instead of http:// worked as suggested from Wheatgrinder. Seems to be a Server-Problem.

Is it possible to change the url to download i686 from " http://" to " https://" for the Arduino-App?

Or Intel, can you please make your download work. Already lost a lot of time with that issue. And no, it's not about firewalls.

Hey Karen,

does the blink project compile with edison selected in the boards list? That is all my "fix" tries to correct.

If your code compiles with Edison selected in the board list then you did everything I did.

Errors with uploading can occur for many reasons. Start with the basics.

Have you gone through the setting up your board process?

https://software.intel.com/en-us/get-started-edison-windows-step2

Can your ssh into it via wifi?

Did you update the board image?

Did you install all the USB board drivers?

Are you using the correct com port in Arduino?

Im moving on to trying to make the "Intel System Studio IOT Edition" work.. entire different set of issues.. I might just buy a raspberry pi 3 as this Edison thing seems to be unloved and losing support every minute

I am wondering the same as an attempt to store an edited version of package_index.json on my own web server and pointing the Arduino software to it (using -DPACKAGE_INDEX_URL) failed. (The software didn't even open.)

BTW, I can download the Intel file directly (from a browser) just fine (even without using HTTPS), but the Arduino Board Manager always gets stuck when trying to download it.
