Hello! I just installed the latest release (not the release candidate) of DSL on my PenDrive (I'm not allowed to install anything on this computer...) and I ran into a problem. I looked around for a way to install apps and found MyDSL. I clicked it and it asked me to update the database, I clicked YES, it did something with a small terminal and then I got the error: "Database check failed. This may be the result of an incomplete download or gremlins in your internets.". I was confused, because my internet is fine, I'm currently using it. I looked up the error, but the solution was written in really tech-sawy gibberish. Can someone explain how to fix this problem in DSL-newbie language please? Smiley The only distros I ever used in my life were Ubuntu, Puppy and SliTaz, so I'm sort of Linux noob Cheesy. Any help will be highly appreciated!

All I had to do was to change the mirror from the Control Panel, because when I tried the original in the browser, it gave me 404.  Grin
