No, Eduard, I wish it was that easy. :-) I don't use Ubuntu or any
of their packages. I do have sqlite3 enabled and, as part of the the
debug, I'll see if that might be causing some of my problems.
I have noticed some odd behavior, even without the cacher, with both
apt-get and aptitude. While updating, the downloads go all the way
to the end and then say the package list isn't there and I have to
update again and sometime 3-4 times. I found that a lot with
ftp.us.debian.org so am trying some others to see if that (pain)
I'll post back on the results.
As I had to use lynx to see your page I 'think' your going to be a bit
busy for awhile. Good luck on the exams and forget about cacher for a
while. Thanks much for the reply!
You are making progress if each mistake is a new one.
