Debian Problem

Recommended Posts

Just how long does it sit there?

 

It should timeout after about 4 minutes... Apt-get update is probably hanging on an out of date mirror string.

 

It is waiting for DNS timeout, and FTP/HTTP timeout...

 

Try the "archive.progeny.com "

 

Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list and put in a set of the following.

 

For Stable(Woody) use:

deb ftp://archive.progeny.com/debian stable main non-free contrib

deb-src ftp://archive.progeny.com/debian stable main non-free contrib

 

For Testing(Sarge) use:

deb ftp://archive.progeny.com/debian testing main non-free contrib

deb-src ftp://archive.progeny.com/debian testing main non-free contrib

 

For Unstable(Sid) use:

deb ftp://archive.progeny.com/debian unstable main non-free contrib

deb-src ftp://archive.progeny.com/debian unstable main non-free contrib

 

Always good to use these...

For Debian Security use:

deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free

 

And for Java:

deb ftp://ftp.tux.org/pub/java/debian woody non-free

 

The do:

apt-get update

apt-get -u upgrade or apt-get -u dist-upgrade

 

Follow prompts from there.

Please take a look at the file /etc/network/interfaces

Code:
### etherconf DEBCONF AREA. DO NOT EDIT THIS AREA OR INSERT TEXT BEFORE IT.auto lo eth0iface lo inet loopbackiface eth0 inet static        address 192.168.1.90        netmask 255.255.255.0        gateway 192.168.1.1### END OF DEBCONF AREA.  PLACE YOUR EDITS BELOW; THEY WILL BE PRESERVED.

 

If you have something like this... then you should be fine... if it is

 

Code:
### etherconf DEBCONF AREA. DO NOT EDIT THIS AREA OR INSERT TEXT BEFORE IT.auto lo eth0iface lo inet loopbackiface eth0 inet dhcp        hostname somename### END OF DEBCONF AREA.  PLACE YOUR EDITS BELOW; THEY WILL BE PRESERVED.

 

If you have something like that... do ifdown eth0 wait a few seconds then do ifup eth0

 

See if that takes care of the issue. Other than that... without more info on your DHCP server or you "LAN" we can't see into your mind ... though I'd like that ability to read most people's minds.... :x

Better:

 

I installed Debian Woody. i have this pc (Gateway) and a pc in my room connected to a switch (switch connected to this PC). When i make apt-get or when i'm going to see a site, the internet goes down. This PC lan IP is 192.168.0.1, and i putted it as the gateway on the Debian machine. The Debian machine is 192.168.0.2. I configured the DNS also... frown
