Gslapt not updating - Solved
« on: March 11, 2008, 06:41:42 pm »

I have searched high and low for an answer to this problem, but nobody else seems to have this problem. On a new install of V5.9 I cannot update Gslapt; it's just extremely slow, and eventually times out. Command line won't work either. I have tried a few different repos. It almost seems like an internet connection problem, yet I have absolutely no connection problems anywhere else. This is what I get:

Perhaps a dns problem? Try appending opendns addresses to the end of your /etc/resolv.conf

Code: [Select]
nameserver 208.67.222.222
nameserver 208.67.220.220

Amazing. It works!

Thanks a million.


(Wonder if it has anything to do with SaskTel's hated 2wire modem/routers...

Hello, I am experienccing the same type of problem, and I, have a 2wire router, too.
I tryed to add those you have adviced, and GSLAPT did worked well, but after I rebooted, this two lines in resolv.conf disapeared.
I added them once more, this time making sure that I saved editing by opening the file once more. They was there. But after reboot they disapered, too.
A tryed it for a few times, but get the same result.
Could you help me, please.
