I need permission to use non-free repos?


While running MEPIS for the first time in months, I've encountered something I've never seen while updating my software. I have the non-free repo selected, but an update produced "401 Authorization Required." Um, okay...where do I get authorization?

The repositories in question in my list are http://main.mepis-deb.org/mepiscr/repo/ and http://restricted.mepis-deb.org/mepiscr/repo/ . Is this all because the MEPIS repositories have been relocated?

I can access this link no problem: http://main.mepis-deb.org/mepiscr/re...e/binary-i386/
Maybe is something with the config files.

Regards

Well, that's not quite the same address as either of the ones in my list (which is what came in the MEPIS iso I downloaded). Is that a new address for the repos?

It is just the sub directory inside the same adress.
