    Wont Install anything

    I just installed an old Ubuntu disk i had on my computer(7.04) and im connected to the internet but i can go to the add/remove software thing to get updates and install new things. when i get to the "Downloading package information". It says at 1% and then a pop up says it couldnt download and it lists all the files. I try again and look at the download information and it just skips each thing without downloading a single kb

    When your thread it solved: go to thread tools > Mark this thread as solved
    for SIS 771/671 use xcompmgr to have transparent terminals. just load it at startup.

    And then they asked: what's a pbkac error?

    That is because the Feisty Fawn repositories are now closed. You will need to use Dapper(6.06 LTS) Gutsy(7.10), Hardy(8.04 LTS), or Intrepid(8.10).
    Windows XP - Excellent computer virus detector.
    Windows Vista - Most bloat for the money.
