Newbie question on dselect
I just successfully installed slink 2.1 on a sparc machine. When I attempted
to use "dselect" to install some other packages off the net, I ran into the
Get http://http.us.debian.org stable/contrib Packages
Get http://http.non-us.debian.org stable/non-US Packages
Error http://http.us.debian.org stable/contrib Packages
Couldn't lookup host http.us.debian.org
Error http://http.non-us.debian.org stable/non-US Packages
Couldn't lookup host http.non-us.debian.org
update available list script returned error exit status 1
Press RETURN to continue.
I believe the errors in the above has to do with the fact that the machine
is behind a firewall. How do set the proxy server information in the
system. What program or tool is available for this?
Thanks in advance.
