Summary: chicken-install is TOTALLY DOWNchicken-install is PARTIALLY DOWN

OK, I guess alaric's machine is somehow serving eggs again.

Leaving this open at reduced priority until someone enlightens me on the battle plan for addressing the single point of failure situation.

We have now

It can be used like that:

chicken-install -l egg-name-here

Status: newclosed

You can give an exact location, as Mario has shown, or you can change the defaults in <PREFIX>/share/chicken/setup.defaults:

 (location "")
 (transport http))

The order of server declarations in this file gives the order in which they are tried.

I will post a message on chicken-users about this.

More worrisome is that alaric's machine returned #f when looking for the extension. It did not time out.

I know how to change the default location, but new users don't, such as the user in IRC who was trying Chicken for the first time and brought this to my attention.

This should probably be prominently posted on the wiki for anyone using Chicken < 4.6.
