Re: Sparcstation20 (32 bit) user needs good /etc/apt/sources.list


Thank you for your reply. As mentioned, I did a dist-upgrade from Sarge.  I can confirm that I am now running Debian 4.0 (Etch). Unfortunately, when I try to check for updates, I have problems with the following packages:


The problem I have with all three is that I get an error message that says "a public key is not available", therefore the packages can't be identified.  i am asked whether I should install anyway, to which I answer "yes".  I get "script" errors when these packages try to configure, and a complaint that "apt-utils is not installed" prevents me from configuing many packages.

I am unable to do a "straight" install from CD of Etch, because I am told that the ESP module that supports my CDROM, is broken, and it is not fixed until 2.6.22, which Debian isn't using, yet.

In summary, I need to work out how to overcome the "key" problem.  It has been suggested that I upgrade my "debian-archive-keyring (I think)", but I am told this is the newest version, already.

I would appreciate any help.

Many thanks.

Can you be more specific?  It may be that your problems are not
