    Cool Lost in Linux

    RE downloading updates: someone,please,what do I do about this??

    There was an error downloading the mirror list: can't use an undefined value as an ARRAY reference at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/ line 499

    The network,or the mandriva website may be unavailable.Try again later.I have tried repeatedly for 3 days with the same result.

    Hello - how did you go about setting up your mirrors? What syntax did you use? Did you use Mandriva's gui tool, or use urpm from a terminal?

    Are you sure the mirror sites you're trying to download from are still active? One way to check this is to try loading the site (even if it is ftp) from inside a browser.
