In the DSL menu, go to "Apps > Net > Download Mirror Selector" and change the URL to "distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/damnsmall/" with Protocol set to "http". Then the downloads should work from the menu links, and the MyDSL browser.

Sorry for reflecting this, but it's not working.

It does solve the URL correctly (checked through another computer).
It does connect (port 80 correctly).
It seems to download without problem.

And then there appear a bunch of characters that will end with the message "Checksum error!". And fails.

I'm currently trying to figure out what is going on, before saying all files are corrupt.

Does anyone else have the same problem?

TIA!

for some reason it is downloading "dal-dkpg.dsl.7" I wander what does that ".7" mean... Tongue

(edit)
Ok. Now I understand. The number at the end is due to the times being downloaded. Managed to delete all of them.

Went again to >APPS>Tools>Enable Apt

Then it fetches the file and downloads it (tried both protocols http and ftp as well). After download completion, it seems to do something I don't understand and not being displayed. Then a bunch of ASCII chars appear on the screen (like when you open a compressed file through a text pad) and finally fails with message "checksum error".

So I tried an alternate way to check if the downloaded file might be corrupted.

But it is not, since I tried:

#wget http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/damnsmall/mydsl/dsl-dpkg.dsl

Then I loaded the extension:

#mydsl-load dsl-dpkg.dsl

No problem at all.

Even after doing that (loading the extension) when I ran:

#apt-get update

It fails saying cannot open lock file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock (file does not exist).

Checked manually and the directory does not exist.

After creating it, dsl is looking for files that obviously are not present.

I must asume that something went wrong during the initial installation into HD. I am not sure why or what happened.

Still trying...

Ok.

Guessed correctly. Something went wrong during the first install. Maybe some of the choices I made were not correct.

Now I reinstalled it from scratch, with standard configuration. Everything went very well and now restoring dkpg was correct and installed straight away.

All set and working.
