Problem with latest IDEA (build 95.413) .gz file

This is the first time that I've attempted to use IDEA on linux (ubuntu 10); previously I've had no problems with downloaded release and EAP versions on WINDOWS but when I download the 95.413 .tar.gz file I seem to have a problem. I have downloaded it twice and the download itself seems to complete without error, however when i try to unpack it I get an error saying "this does not look like a tar archive" and it exits. And, when I check the MD5 doesn't agree with the published value. Now I realise that there may be an issue with the download - but other files that I download seem fine, in general - so I wondered whether there was an issue with this particular build.   graham

Hello Graham,

You can try to download IDEA by wget:

wget http://download.jetbrains.com/idea/ideaIU-95.413.tar.gz


Please inspect wget output -- particularly, following line should be presented in it showing correct file size and content type:

Length: 139303613 (133M) [application/x-tar-gz]

I had my download of the 95.413 ZIP file terminated abnormally four times by the server, at different points - maybe there's something up with the download server?  The only way I managed to get it was to use a download manager in the end.

Thanks - using wget solved the problem. The download was fine that time
