Exclamation Mydsl browser problem


Hi all,
I have been experimenting with dsl on some old hardware and have come across a problem. When I launch mydsl browser to install some apps it wants me to download the database. I click yes and it does some stuff in the terminal and tells me that it couldn't download it, leaving me with an empty database. I have Internet access, because I can browse the web.
If you guys want more specific error messages I will try again and post what it says.

Thanks.

Maybe you might refer to it as the mydsl extension browser? Anyways its whatever app that's use to install apps from the online repository. When I launch it it says: you have no database for online mydsl apps. Do you want to download it now? I hit yes. It tries to download something called mydslinfo.bz2. Then it tries to connect to ibiblio.org to download it and that's where it fails.

Does this clear things up?

No need to worry. I fixed the problem. All I had to do was select a different mirror under cpanel and it fixed it!
