can I find the required .deb files anywhere?
I did a quick search on Google amd found it right away :
Put this on your sources.list :
# XFree 4.3
deb http://penguinppc.org/~daniels/sid/i386/ ./
deb http://www.schuldei.org/debian/bruby/ ./
Then run :
apt-get install xserver-xfree86 -t 4.3
This was NOT verifyed by me - do it at your own risk .
Daniel Stone's packages have migrated from penguinppc.org to Sid, so you
no longer need those sources.list entries you mentioned (but you did
need to a couple of months ago). Oh, and it should be "-t unstable"
instead of "-t 4.3" (-t allows you to specify the distribution where the
packages should come from, in this case 'unstable').
I stand corrected, Damien !
As I mentioned I just pasted the info and did not verify it - just tried
to give,those who needed it, a push!
A litlle search before asking doesn't hurt annyone ...
