Resolving smxi.org... failed: Name or service not known.
wget: unable to resolve host address "smxi.org"
I get the above when trying to execute wget. Am running Mepis 11, which is based on Debian stable, Squeeze I think. Have another system running Mepis 8.5 based on Lenny that works just fine. BTW, I can get to the site with web browser.
I have tried a few suggestions from the Mepis forums but to no avail.
Running Fedora here, FYI.... I ran it just to verify the URL, all looking fine. How is your network connectivity looking on your machine? Can you access that URL from your browser? I would ask more technical questions, but if you can access it via a normal browser, then that would answer a lot actually.... Besides that, seems kind of weird, especially if you don't have any DNS issues. Have you tried it using the IP address of the site?
