Are you using the package manager?
What repository is the package manager set to?
What exactly happens when attempting to download a file/package?
The two distros are Ununtu 9.10 and Mandriva 2010.
I am using the Package manager, I was able to get Ubuntu working, but not Mandriva.
Both packet managers were set by default to American sites, the Ubuntu one I change to Austrlia and works fine, Mandriva is having all sort of problems with the packet manger, after requesting the download it occurs 1 to 2 hours later, this happening on two different PCS in two separate locations.
One Mandriva was downloaded the other purchased and on two different Internet providers.
