Apt-get doesn't work! (timeout errors in apt-get update)
source.list is:

deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ woody main contrib non-free

I've changed in:

deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/dists/woody main contrib non-free

Thanks in advance!

You do realise that the Debian 3 "Woody" packages are no longer updated?

As DSL doesn't support later Debian packages and the My-DSL respository is no longer frequently updated, I usually compile software myself if I need a new version.

As for using the old Woody packages, they are available on the web from "archive.debian.net". I don't remember trying that site with apt-get though.

Thanks for the reply,

I was tired, so I've installed lubuntu Alternate install CD. It works fine!
