kvirc

i tried to install kvirc the other day using apt-get and it seemed to have given me an old version. i then tried to install it from source but gave me some errors saying it couldnt find x.

would some one like to help me. i looked on apt-get.org and tried to add a url to my sources.list but when i did apt-get update it didnt work.
Code: Select all
Get:1 ftp://ftp.kvirc.de stable/main Packages
Err ftp://ftp.kvirc.de stable/main Packages
  Unable to fetch file, server said 'Failed to open file.  ' [IP: 217.145.**.73 21]
Get:2 ftp://ftp.kvirc.de stable/main Release
Ign ftp://ftp.kvirc.de stable/main Release
Failed to fetch ftp://ftp.kvirc.de/pub/kvirc/snapshots/debian/sarge/dists/stable/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz  Unable to fetch file, server said 'Failed to open file.  ' [IP: 217.145.**.73 21]
Reading Package Lists... Done
W: Couldn't stat source package list ftp://ftp.kvirc.de stable/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.kvirc.de_pub_kvirc_snapshots_debian_sarge_dists_stable_main_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

well, it gave you the version which is in sarge.

i guess you did run "apt-get update" before?

looks as if the source package is not on the give URL anymore.
well if you really want the bleeding edge version you can download
manually and build your package with dh_make or however you like.

another way would be to install the package from debian si(unstable) but
i guess this will also update lots of kde libs as well because of dependencies.

looking for a backport version:
http://apt-get.org

or compiling your own version.
