CAELinux2013.iso was created by vasantha wijeyakulasuriys
I have been trying to download CAELinux2013.iso for weeks both under windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04LTS (64 bit and 32 bit). I want to installed it as a virtual machine using VMWare Workstation 12.

In all instances, the downloads crash before even reaching the 1GB level, let alone anywhere near the ~4GB listed for this package.

I don't even get a chance to try out the checksum. It is truly frustrating. Am I compelled to purchase the disk/CD as mentioned in the website?.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. I am certainly a newbie.

Thanks

I had no problem reaching 1.5 GB downloading the iso here:
sourceforge.net/projects/caelinux/files/latest/download
After the 1.5 GB I quit because my provider still imposes a download limit to my account ;-(.
Where did you download your iso?

Interest: structural mechanics, solar energy (picture at 'my location' shows too little pv panels)

Hi Keeswouters,

Thanks for your comment.

This is how I overcame the problem as a newbie. May not be the most sound approach, though!. I noted in a forum elsewhere about IDM (internet download manager, free trial version). This was able to download the 4 GB iso in reasonable time without suffering timeout. Then either oracle virtual box or the vmware workstation will do the rest.

Again learning from a forum, I had to tweak a flag in the BIOS to create a 64 bit virtual machine ( I have a lenovo Thinkpad E530). Fun stuff for a newcomer, but did it cautiously.

Salome-mecha is running under the CAELinux virtual machine.

Some questions though:

(a) Could I upgrade the salome-meca to the 2015 station version within the CAELinux virtual machine?

(b) Or have I to do it under Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for example.

(c) If I have to use the Ubuntu 14.04 option, is it just one tar file to unpack from code-aster.org or one needs to download several and make it, something out of my reach at the moment as a newbie?

Any advice will be much appreciated.
