I can't download a repository using easy mercurial because I'm stuck behind a proxy.
I checked my settings and they're applied system wide (ubuntu 10.10) but it looks like mercurial is ignoring them.
I get the following messages:
abort: Error: Connection timed out
abort: There is no Mercurial repository here (.hg not found)!
For what it's worth, I'm using the 32-bit Linux version 0.9.6.
I tried to download 0.9.7 but it doesn't work as the latest mercurial version in Ubunutu 10.10 is 1.6.3 and this appears to require >1.7

Actually v0.9.6 requires Mercurial 1.7 as well; the merge syntax won't work properly with older versions. It's just that v0.9.6 didn't have any code to check the Mercurial version number and complain about it.
You can get a newer version of Mercurial in Ubuntu with
$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mercurial-ppa/releases $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install mercurial
