Snapin failing to download



  • I’ve successfully made a couple of snapins, including one for Intel video drivers. However, a snapin that I’ve made for NVidia video drivers just won’t download. I get the following messages:

    over and over again. I’ve tried deleting and re-creating the snapin; that didn’t help. I’ve already changed php.ini to allow for downloads up to 1900M, so that’s not the problem. Does anybody have any other ideas?



  • Aha! I figured it out.

    My FOG server is running on CentOS, so I used the instructions for Fedora to modify php.ini. However, apparently under CentOS, you must also modify the memory_limit setting, similar to Ubuntu, or large snapins will fail. I’m surprised my Intel video snapin worked.

    Regardless, once I modified memory_limit to 1900M, the snapin downloaded. Sweet!
