Installing from repository

Postby sur321 on Mon Aug 11, 2008 12:22 am

HI,
I am now running Linux Mint. Everything works fine,

But when I try to install drivers for my graphics card I get problem as follows

W: Failed to fetch http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/ ... 1_i386.deb
404 Not Found


Please let me know how could it be resolved. Or is there any other way to get files from some other repository

Thanks,
sur

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Try this :

Open a terminal and enter the following command :

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


Let this run and then try installing the drivers again.
