Been running ut2004 fine for some time, but when trying to emerge it on a new machine, *** could not be found on any mirrors. As luck would have it, I just blew away everything in /usr/portage/distfiles to make space for ut2004-data, where there was probably a cached copy.

Searching the web, I noticed a lot of other places with links to download that file were also 404'ing, though with persistence I eventually found a copy. But I couldn't find any info on why it should no longer be on the Gentoo mirrors.

Code:

littledebbie ~ # emerge ut2004

As I'd mentioned I had already found a copy:

What I should have added is: why should the file have disappeared from the Gentoo mirrors? Should I file a bug?

The answer to that is, no idea. Someone probably goofed.

Second is you should, but check first. In this case the bug has already been filed so no you shouldn't make a duplicate bug report.

Thanks Doc. Since it seems to have disappeared from so many places at once (about other sites I googled had links that 404'd) I wondered if it might have been no accident, as if Midway (or whoever owns the UT2004 rights) had sent takedown notices, perhaps?

I didn't find any reported bugs when researching the problem, so I'll open one. Cheers

EDIT: I didn't find it then, but there is in fact a bug open since March: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=506112
The bug has a link to a good copy of the file, but nothing's been done since the bug was opened :/
