unable to access repositories
I was using Mint Linux until I wanted to download an image viewer when I was told that the ubuntu repositories could not be accessed.
I later substituted PclinuxOS and tried to download Abiword and a dependency. Once again I was told that the repository at http//: spout.ussg.indiana, etc, could not be accessed.
I'm starting to wonder if there is something amiss with my computer itself. Here's the spec:
Gigabyte GA- M57sli-s4 mobo
Athlon 3800 processor
Nvidia Gforce 8500gt graphics card
Corsair DDR2 2gb memory (twin)
HP1740 flatscreen lcd monitor
WD 400gb Sata HDD
As everything other than the repositories seems to be working okay, including the internet, perhaps its something in the Bios?
I'd really like some help here, please.
