AMD 64: newly installed vl 5.9 RC2.
I get an error message trying to update the package/extra/patch list with gslapt.
The firewall is not enabled and no matter which mirrors I select I just get a 'cannot connect to' or 'cannot update' error (I forget the wording).
I must have something fundamentally wrong here as Firefox works fine but the attempts to connect to the mirrors are really slow before they quit altogether.
:# slapt-get --update
