aptitude and source list problems
I have just started out with debian and I'm having a few problems.
I installed my amd64 lenny using a network instalation cd. As I expected it didn't have a lot on there when installed so I started to try and get kde using aptitude. During the instal I was prompted to use the ftp from debian in the uk as my repository source.
The problem is that when I try to download, update or do anything in aptitude there is no network activity and the thing eventually times out. I have pinged websites and I get no problems there so I think it might be something to do with the package lists or something. I'm not very experienced at using command lines so I'm finding it all abit daunting, so any help would be appreiceated.
EDIT: in case it is relevent I am conecting to the internet using a netgear router through usb. I tried using aptitude with it conected to ether net as well but both didn't work
