Can't download BOINC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure if this is because I'm not supposed to be trying this in the pre-alpha stage, but when I try to download and install BOINC, I get messages saying:

warning: failed to retrieve some files from extra

Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

The sudo command is also unavailable, due to the package not being installed. I got an error message at boot saying that something or other couldn't find OCNix, and editing my hosts.conf file might fix the problem.

Things that work: Changing keyboard layout to Dvorak, browsing the internet, authoring this post.

I'm testing on Cap'n Crunch (in my sig). I have Arch installed on the HDDs, but the computer would shut down every time I went awmay. I'm not sure if this is due to me screwing up the Arch setup, or a hardware problem, so I'm currently using OCNix for troubleshooting (probably not the best idea at the pre-alpha stage, but I didn't want to download Knoppix).

I'll be off to bed soon, and probably check this post before school tomorrow.

Sorry for the late reply I missed this thread some how. It's probably because of the package manager being so out of date since the pre-alpha was built a while ago.

That'd do it. Thanks.
