Synaptic Package Manager and MintUpdate not working

Postby SweetFA on Sun Mar 09, 2008 1:24 pm

Total newbie here and i'm connected via wifi and whenever i try to use SPM or Mintupdate it just times out.
I'm using Daryna, my ISP is Tiscali (i know, i know).
Must admit i don't know what a DNS is so an idiot proof solution is needed :wink:

Thanks in advance!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hmm. Bizarrely it seems to be working now.... i did try a suggestion i'd found elsewhere before i asked this question and it didn't seem to work, maybe the old reboot did the trick.
