Cannot build PYNQ2.7 because isl.gforge.inria site is shut down


I have been trying to build pynq image for Arty Z7-10 board over the weekend.
I think the build fails when at making gcc, because the repository site is permanently shut down.

from gcc-mb/build.log we can see the following:

[ALL  ]    --2021-11-28 23:41:44--  (try: 3)
[ALL  ]    Connecting to (||:80... failed: Connection timed out.
[ALL  ]    Giving up.
[ALL  ]    
[DEBUG]    ==> Return status 4
[DEBUG]    Not at this location: ""
[ERROR]    isl: download failed
[ERROR]  >>
[ERROR]  >>  Build failed in step 'Retrieving needed toolchain components' tarballs'
[ERROR]  >>        called in step '(top-level)'

Has anybody else had these issues?
How can I get around this? I am sure there are alternative repositories but how can I add them to the build?

Thanks for the help.

Replying to my own question in case somebody else has the same issue, since i wasted a lot of time on this.
Tarballs are saved in /home/src/ folder. You can create folder manually and place any missing files there. The crosstool will not try download them if they are found.

I am analog and rf designer, not a software guy, so I don’t know how to force the process to use alternative repository. If someone else knows it I would be grateful for the explanation.

I had the same issue not too long ago.
Here’s how I got over it: Error During Creation of PYNQ SD Related to gcc-mb build - #2 by ATchelet


Thanks, that is also good to know.
