apt-get


Trying to use apt-get install packagename

it dll the package. Then get the message; Failed to fetch
ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt.../RPMS.update/x
chat-1.8.7-117.i386.rpm
Size mismatch
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe try with --fix-missing?

So i do then apt-get install packagename --fix-missing.

Then i get: Failed to fetch
ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt...7-117.i386.rpm
Size mismatch

So been checking here en there, and the file beeing download in
/var/cache/apt/archives/partial, when i copy those downloaded file to
/var/cache/apt/archives/ and then run apt-get install packagename again. It
installs flawlessly.

is there something wrong on my system, or are it the servers.
Just did a fresh system install.

Using Suse 8.0

Try to choose a different server for downloads. It seems the files on server are broken.

Why are you using apt-get on an *.rpm package. apt-get works with *.deb packages. If you have /etc/apt/sources.list setup correctly, all you have to do is:

apt-get update
apt-get install xchat

-mk

Sorry. I missed the point that your were using suse 8.0. I guess I assumed you were using debian. -mk

Have this solved, now.

I had my proxy settings set in Yast2, as it should be.
The settings work fine, for proxy setting in konqueror and other. But seems to mess something up with apt-get. Maybe when syncronising to the servers.
