Sorry, if this is in the wrong place, but didn't really see a better one.

I have somehow lost access to the online mydsl extensions.  The local one on my HD appear OK, but all others gone.  I checked /opt/.dslrc and the mirror is still there.  What has this newbie done to lose access to the precious mydsl extensions?

I often have trouble with the MyDSL tool.

Visit the website instead: < http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/damnsmall/mydsl/ >

Thanks.  I can go to the web site repository and download OK, just that the MyDSL toolbox is so darn handy.  I'll keep working on it.

The MyDSL tool is just GUI Sugar around wget.
Does your wget work?

Or could be you lost your default download site.
What does your /opt/.dslrc show?

If missing, nothing, or invalid URL then reset it by selecting a mirror.

wget from console seems to work OK.
/opt/.dslrc is Mirror: ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distributions/damnsmall
Protocol: ftp

/opt/.mydsl_dir is /tmp

/tmp permissions are -rw-rw-r--

I tried resetting the mirror several time from the DSL Panel, and although the change was made, it didn't get things working again.
