Two notes from the staff, before reading more: 1) be sure you have the latest version of PlayOnLinux! 2) don't say only "doesn't work for me", read a bit the first page and try to provide a bit more information (such as network provider, wget output, dig results, using IPv6). Thanks :-)

I have seen this option come up in a few posts, I have tried the suggestions from:

wget -q "http://repository.playonlinux.com/version2.php?v=4.0.7" -T 10 -O- 


to renaming it.

I just can't seem to make this thing load the game list.

Does POL tell you that he cannot connect to the internet? (Btw, hello, thank you and goodbye wouldn't be too much)

I apologize for the lack of formalities, IRC and Forums usually request to skip the BAS salutation etiquette and just get down to brass-tax.

Hello! Thank you for creating one of the most useful applications for linux gamers!


Here is some output of the application being run:

Thank you for reviewing. :D

Can you type wget -4 -q http://repository.playonlinux.com/version2.php?v=4.0.14 -T 30 -O- in a terminal?

That's not normal. What can you see in "http://repository.playonlinux.com/version2.php?v=4.0.14" page ?
omgimdrunk Wednesday 30 November 2011 at 20:34

4.0.14

And you says that "wget -4 -q http://repository.playonlinux.com/version2.php?v=4.0.14 -T 30 -O-" does not answer "4.0.14" ??

Can you try without the "-4" ?

Any suggestions on what I should try next to get this working?

Yep, you have to modify all PlayOnLinux files and replace wget -4 by wget everywhere. It will be fixed in next version (I hope)

Hi all :)

Quentin, may be we need to specify an user-agent to all wget commands.
From others previous problems reported, it doesn't seem to be a dns related bug neither an IPv4/v6.
I'm thinking that some provider are looking inside the layer 7 of all requests (like SFR, Orange, etc are doing on their EDGE network).
In case this isn't a well know browser they slowdown or simply block.
May be looking the HTTP Headers for people affected will also give us more information (with the "-S" option to wget).
By the way on my computer with a verbose output from wget I can't saw "4.0.14" but by redirecting the output to stdout and using tail, it's ok.

So, omgimdrunk (funny nickname ^_^)
could you post the output of :
wget -4 http://repository.playonlinux.com/version2.php?v=4.0.14 -T 30 -O /dev/stdout -S | tail
The "| tail" plus the "-O /dev/stdout" allow to be a bit more clear with the output, you could also redirect to a file using -O OutputToAFileSomewhereInMyComputerWhichContainTheOutputOfThisCrazyWget and paste the content after.

EDIT: Since there is more, and more message for this bug, I've change the topic title to more clear and push it to a post-it.

I had the same problem "with empty games list", but it solved and looks like the FAQ:
1. I enabled add-on for off-line game's installation, it download something about 0.3 Mb and finished OK, I check "games list" - nothing, too bad!
2. And I forgot to disable "off-line" mod with add-on before making several next trying!
3. I turned it OFF, restart POL - it download updates on the next start, games descriptions are here, games list - OK (seems to be the very BASIC faq!)
Thank you for the fancy UI design and on-line support and help! =)

btw, it is PlayOnLinux 4.0.14 under Linux version 3.0.0-15-generic (Ubuntu 11.10 x86)
