Apt-get Repository problems


I've finally gotten internet, had trouble setting it up though. In the end have gotten it working by disabling ipv6 in Firefox. But it doesn't seem to work in the terminal, I can't update the repositories for apt-get at all. Whenever I try to update it gets to 66% of one and then does no more. Says connecting to 1.0.0.0 or something. Can't update them in synaptic either. What am I doing wrong?

go to debian, or whatever distro your usings website and get the list of current repositories that you might want.

then enter them (the same way) they are entered currently in your /etc/apt/sources.list

good luck.

Yes I can do that fine, but when I then run apt-get update it gets to the first one and the does nothing. It says connecting 66%, and never goes any higher. I also can't connect to gaim or synaptic repositories either.

well then you need to make sure the repositorys are 'good'..

try others also.. it sounds like the repositories are down (hopefully temporarely).

Have tried a couple of others, but even the standard ones that come in the apt sources.list don't work. No success though, gets stuck at connecting to whatever the server is. And sill no luck with synaptic or gaim either, so I wonder if the internet is set up properly. I'm plugged into an adsl router. pppoeconf doesn't work, complains about access something not responding.

Still no luck, I can ping regular websites from the terminal but not any of the repositories and still can't update. Have tried several. Can others get to theirs, meaning it's still a problem on my end?
In other notes, trying to install files without apt-get, very hard. Where can I find 64bit versions of glib and gcc-3.4?

so your inet is working?

when you describe an error message, please tell the exact message.

have you manually edited your /etc/apt/sources.list?

joshua@SilentJ:~$ sudo apt-get update
50% [Connecting to www.lychnis.net (1.0.0.0)]

Here is an example of the update text. Sits there for a long time and then times out. Have tried manually editing the list, adding and removing various repositories, but no luck yet.
And when I run pppoeconf I get this:

Sorry, I scanned 1 interface, but the Access │
│ Concentrator of your provider did not respond. Please │
│ check your network and modem cables. Another reason │
│ for the scan failure may also be another running pppoe │
│ process which controls the modem.

Can't see any processes which may be doing so though.

Very odd, I can ping www.lychnis.net, but can't get the update from it.

Thumbs down Having the same problem

Synaptic does not work correctly - repositories do not resolve correctly - get ip of 1.0.0.0.
This is IPV6 related. I have tried to turn off IPV6 by commenting in:
alias net-pf-10 off # IPv6

in modules.conf but this file gets reset to its default.

It did affect firefox but konqueror worked fine.

Help is required. There are many reports of this problem on the net.

I have Debian testing (sid) upto date.

Thank You
Sygin

..Sygin
why do you think it is ip6 related.... ip6 is downward compatible with ip4.

are you SURE you have decent repositories... GOOD repositories GO BAD sometimes.

here is mine that work (today anyway



# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux testing _Etch_ - Official Snapshot i386 Binary-1 (20051109)]/ etch contrib main

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian testing main
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian testing main

deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ sarge main

deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main



[end of my: /etc/apt/sources.list]

good luck.

Question Ping seems to help

Thank you for the reply

I am not sure if it is IPV6 related now.

If i have http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ and I apt-get update I get
connecting ftp.uk.debian.org (1.0.0.0)

but if I ping ftp.uk.debian.org i get:
PING ftp.uk.debian.org (130.89.175.33) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from ftp.uk.debian.org (130.89.175.33): icmp_seq=1 ttl=52 time=76.3 ms
64 bytes from ftp.uk.debian.org (130.89.175.33): icmp_seq=3 ttl=52 time=77.9 ms
64 bytes from ftp.uk.debian.org (130.89.175.33): icmp_seq=4 ttl=52 time=74.8 ms

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 74.801/76.365/77.943/1.321 ms

Then if i apt-get update it all works find:

Get: 5 http://ftp.uk.debian.org testing/main Packages [2797kB]

Get: 10 http://ftp.uk.debian.org unstable/non-free Packages [60.1kB]
Fetched 6069kB in 56s (108kB/s)

If I wait for a little while and try again apt-get update gives:
[Connecting to ftp.uk.debian.org (1.0.0.0)]

Why is this happening?

Thanks
sygin

jay, is maybe the fact you have 64 bit an issue?

i mean, it is not as common on the repositories, not to meantion you see loads of problems people are having with it.

if there is any way you can 'test' with 32?

ie. have a line in your grub or whereever to select a 32 bit kernel, just to test & see if this part of the prob?
