Hello. I just installed 5.9 standard gold on my desktop. I cannot update the package listings using gslapt or slapt-get. I tried using two different mirrors, but it just hangs when I try to update. I've read some posts, but one was from 2006 and the other suggested reinstalling gslapt. Well, the uninstall went fine; however, I cannot reinstall gslapt because I can't seem to access any mirrors. Any ideas? Thanks.

It's the same as on the iso, but I edited it by hand to use a different pair of repos. (This was because of the suggestion to delete and reinstall gslapt.)

I did not set up a firewall, but I checked in vasm anyway. When I chose "stop," it said that a script wasn't created yet. So it seems that I don't have a firewall running.

Thanks.

According to the Slapt-getrc file you posted you do not have any of the Vector repositories enabled.

Here is what my Slapt-getrc Looks like:

Those first Three or Four entries should be enabled.
put those in your Slapt-getrc file and try  slapt-get --update again.
hope this helps.

I actually did have some repos enabled further down (us mirrors). But no matter which mirrors I use (default, us, etc), either

a. couldn't resolve host name
b. not found
c. retrieving, but at dial-up speeds

Any ideas? Thanks.

I have seen this before, and usually is a DNS problem. Try appending the opendns IPs to your /etc/resolv.conf:

Code:
nameserver 208.67.220.220
nameserver 208.67.222.222
