Gslapt cannot find mirrors
« on: August 11, 2008, 05:54:04 pm »
I'm sure this is obvious but when I click on the update button in gslapt it says the site is not available. Ihave tried various other mirror sites in the list But all give the same result. I've now tried this on two computers with the same result.
The strange thing is that when I type the address into firefox it open almost instantly.
Is there something I'm missing here.

I thought the command line would give a more full error so here is the result of a slapt-get --update.

root:# slapt-get --update

Yes and working as demonstrated by the fact that I can get onto the web site with firefox!

Do you enable any firewall?
Can you browse to any of the repo site?
Pls post your slapt-getrc setting....
