    Add a new PPC mirror to repositories

    Hi there

    AARNET (http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/) now has ubuntu-ports. (http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/ubuntu-ports/)

    I was wondering whether it could be added to the mirrors/repositories list.

    Could anyone tell me how to manually add it to my computer via software sources.

    I am interested in lucid PPC ubuntu ports.

    Thanks

    Gday,

    It's Jared from the HUMBUG list,

    When you say it's not working what sort of errors are you getting?

    If you can run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    in a terminal and then paste the output with the error message that will help track down what the issue is.

    The fact that EVERY repository entry (both aarnet and all the others) are failing it is almost suggesting to me that it's a DNS issue.

    Can you go back to your terminal and type
    Code:
    ping mirror.aarnet.edu.au
    which will check if your DNS is resolving the address. If this works we can look into other ideas. If this gives you errors your problem is with DNS not the repositories.
