"nio2-linux20090929.tar" seems very old and supposedly is not supported any more.

You can use it, if you are happy with it, but you can't ask anybody for any help. This is bleeding edge technology and gets improved rather quickly, so the old stuff tends to be a lot more buggy than the current work in progress.

Sorry for your unstable connection.  

 

To work with Linux on Nios using git is absolutely necessary, and here lots of data needs to be transferred. So supposedly you first need to fix any network problems.

I'm not doing any active development with NIOS any more, so I can't provide any specif help on that. Just trying to provide some global hints :(.  

 

Maybe others might jump in.
