catalog download failures (since ~3.2 or 3.4)

Postby D-ECHO » Sat Sep 19, 2015 4:13 pm

Since 3.2 or 3.4 flightgear always says
Code: Select all
default catalog not found, installing 'org.flightgear.default' from ''.
catalog download failure:

at the startup.
Does anybody know what that means?
I didn't notice any problems following to that error message.

If you look at, you will see that packages exist for versions 3.1.0, 3-2.0, 3.3.0, 3.6.0 and 3.7.0. They do not exist for versions 3.4.0 and 3.5.0.

I assumed when the problem first manifested itself here with version 3.4.0 that it ws because the package had not been uploaded.

The error messages persist when I checked today, and so I did some ivestigation and found the above results. It is obvious that there is another problem.

I have deleted everything on C:\Users \Alan\Appdata\Roaming\ The directory C:\Users \Alan\Appdata\Roaming\\Aircraft, which held the old default directory, is not regenerated when flightgear is run.

This is in C:\Users \Alan\Appdata\Roaming\\fgfs.log:-

general:5:..\..\simgear\package\Catalog.cxx:93:catalog download failure:
io:4:..\..\..\src\Network\HTTPClient.cxx:79:refresh of Catalog ... atalog.xml failed:4
io:3:..\..\..\src\Network\HTTPClient.cxx:57:all Catalogs refreshed

failed:4 indicates "FAIL_DOWNLOAD" according to the simgear source code.

I will cross post this to the devel list.
