Well, I have finally got connected to the Internet using ADSL.
It's not the best speed, but 400/100 is much better than 56K dial-up.
Here's my piccle:
I have doze workstations running one the network, which are all working great, I have a linux server on the same network and that also works amazingly well.
I'm able to browse using lynx, download files, and everything appears to be OK.
(I just tried this):
Connecting to www.powertech.no
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: 2,468,567 [application/x-gzip]
100%[====================================>] 2,468,567 42.29K/s ETA 00:00
20:46:15 (35.84 KB/s) - `apache_1.3.33.tar.gz' saved [2468567/2468567]
Once I try and install something I have downloaded everything fails.
tar zxvf apache_1.3.33.tar.gz
working for a few seconds then...
------ CUT FROM CONSOLE --------
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers
gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--crc error
gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--length error
tar: Read 6085 bytes from apache_1.3.33.tar.gz
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
This happens everytime.
So I try and get Slackware packages using the same method...
Everything says the same during download, but when I install:
------------- CUT FROM CONSOLE -----------
Installing package apache-1.3.33-i486-1...
apache: apache (The Apache HTTP Server)
apache: Apache is an HTTP server designed as a plug-in replacement for the
apache: NCSA HTTP server. It fixes numerous bugs in the NCSA server and
apache: includes many frequently requested new features, and has an API which
apache: allows it to be extended to meet users' needs more easily.
apache: Apache is the most popular web server in the known universe; over
apache: half of the servers on the Internet are running Apache or one of
apache: its variants.
Unable to install apache-1.3.33-i486-1.tgz: tar archive is corrupt (tar returned error code 2)
I tried inserting the slackware CD, and installpkg from that... Works A-OK
I'm at a loss.. Even reinstalled the server thinking it was something happened during a power-down.
Anyone want to give me their thoughts on what this might be?
(I connect using a SpeedTouch 510i as a router and DHCP)
