I restarted the server

Note that you can use the mirrors extension in conjunction with the apps gui to use a mirror if/when the server is down.

According to the logs, it was up when you made your post. Lots of downloads were happening.

Hi bpgoa
I once got that behavior when my  tcemirror  file got messed up. What's the output of:
Code: [Select]
cat /opt/tcemirror

I'm not sure the OP is referring to the repo itself which is fine.   Instead I think he maybe referring to the "OnlineBrowser" which is down at present


http://packages.tinycorelinux.net/ ??

Thanks guys...  its both...  as I'm new to this distribution, I've been using the repo browser to learn about the available packages...  its not working at present...

Also, last week I was not able to get packages from the repository... I worked around it ...  (wanted to install tcpdump,,, ran wireshark and port mirrored on the switch instead) so not tried again yet..  sure i will be trying again later today

Thanks

Hi Juanito
I think something may be wrong with the repo. I get a blank page when I go to the following links:
http://tinycorelinux.net/7.x/x86/tcz/compiletc.tcz.info
http://tinycorelinux.net/6.x/x86/tcz/compiletc.tcz.info
http://tinycorelinux.net/5.x/x86/tcz/compiletc.tcz.info
For TC4 I get the information:
http://tinycorelinux.net/4.x/x86/tcz/compiletc.tcz.info
but it's the only TC4 extension I found that would return an info page.
The following links should return a list of available packages but return blank pages:
http://tinycorelinux.net/7.x/armv6/tcz/
http://tinycorelinux.net/7.x/armv7/tcz/

We have a problem with the server - hopefully it can be fixed soon.

In the meantime the mirrors should work OK.

Yesterday's downtime was caused by a kernel panic, it appears. Should be all good now.
