Greetings. I have changed from the coffe Ubuntu to the tea flavour of Mint.
I had installed Daryna Gnome main edition, on a AMD AthlonTM 1.8GHZ 5**Mb Ram and a Dual Boot with Win XP (both in different hard drives).
After the instalation I wanted to upgrade some packages. I try'd first with the MintUpdate but it hangs timeless. (waited for almost 1hr.) then I tried the synaptic package Manager (something familiar) but it can't reload and i got the following text :
"The repository might be no longer available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and the correct writing of the repository address in the preferences."
and the error is this: "E: Não foi possível obter lock /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable) E: Unable to lock the list directory"
Then I thought I could use apt-get update or upgrade but it hangs timeless.
Is this a network connection problem.? ( using ADSL "direct connect" )
Well I hope there is a solution out there. thank you very much in advance.
