Sorry if this is in the wrong section.
I've been playing with DSL for about 3 months now, wanting to get an old laptop up and running for simple tasks (such as surfing the net in the living room when the wife is watching TV, rather than coming out to the computer room and neglegting her all night).
I've managed to get it installed on the Hard Disk so it boots up on it's own, and everything is great. Really pleased with it so far.
I'm trying to install a program - called COMIX - which requires Python to run.
I have opened up the MyDSL thing (I should explain right now I need things explained very simply) and selected Python 2.5.
There are 2 versions of it, but neither download and install on their own.
They both hang when downloading.
One one occasion I chose the download only option and it got it all. But it didn't install properly.
Can I download from any other source, or do i need to use the MyDSL bit?
Once more, apologies if this is in the wrong area, and if I haven't provided enough info.
Oh, and Hello.
