The idea was to teach you to fish by going through the nuts and bolts.
Sure it is much easier to just get someone to give you fish.

wongck wrote:The solution is on the 1st page of the mirror, which is just a setenv statement with the correct PATH parameters.
But I suspect that most likely your folder structure is wrong.

EmpireAndrew wrote:But I followed the document steps and ended up with something that didn't work.
Now... the doc iirc referred to 1.17.cur and I am using a newer version, maybe something changed?
On top of that I installed to drive E not drive D. (I have a TOS partition I wanted to keep on D).
But of course any references to D I changed to E, no big deal.

If the PATH parameter as default is wrong, then the doc needs to explain:
1. Where to set it
2. Why it needs to be changed
3. What to set it to.

I say this because easymint failed on me a few times before I discovered this. Every time after that, all installs went perfectly.
EDIT: Cancel that, I reread more carefully.
For your network issue, which ethernet driver are you using? I've found the driver provided with MiNT to be less than optimal, I'd try the Assemsoft driver.
