I'm trying to install SS via composer... so I run the following:

composer create-project silverstripe/installer ./silverstripe 3.0.5

Which seems to run fine apart from getting the following message:

'[RuntimeException] The lock file does not contain require-dev information, run install with the --no-dev option or run update to install those packages.'

so next I run:

cd silverstripe && composer install --no-dev

To which I receive:

'[Composer\Downloader\TransportException] The "" file could not be downloaded (HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found) '

What am I doing wrong?

Sometimes the links on Github break. In that case you can have it download the sources via Git:

composer install --no-dev --prefer-source

Hope that helps.
