I am tagging on this thread because I don't know how to start a new one.

I installed Trinity on my Slackware 13.37 system. Quanta will start but the 
visual editor won't work. I tried reloading Trinity but both the Slackware
commands won't work, for Slackware 12.2 or 13.1.I get this or a similar message:

--2011-12-28 16:05:30--  (try: 2)
Connecting to
(||:80... failed: Connection timed out.

etc. forever. 

Here is the command string I am using (as root)
wget -c -nd -r -l1 --no-parent -A.txz -A.txt

I am out of ideas. any suggestions? Is there a problem with

All I want to do is run Quanta+ without rebooting a Slackware 12.2 partition.
