I've been trying to install Solum locally (first on Windows, then on Ubuntu) since about 3 weeks ago, with no success.

There have been four distinct attempts I've tried:

A. (Installing m2 demo of Solum) - installation seems succesful, but fails on the last step - ie. connecting via browser. VagrantBox's port 9001 is forwarded, the route is pingable, but both Firefox and Google Chrome respond with "Unable to connect". Just-in-case changing to didn't help.

Interestingly, inspecting the virtual machine with vagrant ssh shows that "solum is not a recognized command".

B. (on Ubuntu) - fatal error right by the start (no repository). I can't find a way to fix that line via any config files.

C. (Installing the development environment). Once again:

fatal: remote error: access denied or repository not exported: /stackforge/solum

D. Installing solum separately on devstack - I can install devstack with no problem, but I have no idea what to do after that. (All the documentation says about it:)

 TODO add docs here on how to install on different distros like:


Am I doing something wrong? At this point I'm starting to wonder if Solum has been discontinued or if it's not ready for use yet.

This error:

fatal: not valid: is this a git repository?

makes me believe there is a typo in the script you downloaded. There is no domain. I think the correct url for devstack should be

Thank you for quick reply, but I double-checked and this was a copy-paste error when I was creating the question. I edited it, which broke links. Tried sh again and the error indeed was `fatal: ( not valid: is this a git repository?'
