    Hi Folks I just installed PCLinuxOS on to one of my machines and tried to do an update when synaptic is telling me it cant reach the repo. This has been happening since yesterday. Has the repo moved from the url info given by the install disk? This is the type of error mesage I'm getting.

    404 not found

    Any ideas?

    There might be a simple error in the link itself, as the link provided above does not work at all.

    Can you provide the full URL so that someone can test it?

    Nevermind, I've merged your duplicate threads and see that the entire link is included in your original post.

    I also followed a PCLinux link and landed here! 8-(

    I have PCLinuxOS 2007 installed but it can't see the net!

    Puppy and Mepis find it and connect with no problem but PCLinux seems to think more like I do! I would like to use it...

    Any ideas anywhere???

    start a new thread and let me know where its is. Give us some details of hardware particularly the nic, and any error messages and I will see what I can do. I'm very busy this weekend but will try to help.
