I am posting for a friend who tried installing JuliaPro in mainland China. He said the installation got to the stage of copying files and the progress froze, getting nowhere for 2 hours before he shut it down.
His network speed should be pretty good. The only guess we have: maybe JuliaPro needs to download some packages from a US server which is blocked by the famous (or infamous ) Chinese national firewall?
He had installed Python and R on the same machine before without any problem, but all the packages they needed could be located on mirror servers in China. Are there mirror servers for Julia packages in China?
And is anybody experiencing same problem (or no problem at all) installing JuliaPro from mainland China?
