dselect on unstable dist., how?
I am finally making the transition to the libc6. I am following the HOW-TO
but am having a hard time finding the recommended files like 'libreadline2'
at ftp.debian.org (although I found libreadlineg2).
Beyond file location problems I would like to not use dpkg and use dselect
instead but I am having a hard time pointing dselect to the unstable
distribution. I keep getting,
"Warning: Could not find a Packages file in unstable/binary-i386
This may not be a problem if the directory is a symbolic link"
then the dselect update procedure throws an error due to no package file.
Furthermore, I downloaded and installed dpkg-188.8.131.52 and dpkg-1.4.9 from
unstable but I still have the same problems.
I have poked through the arquives on this one but didn't see anything. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.
