i am using debian etch/testing and the mirror us.debian.org <http://us.debian.org>. when i try to install nvidia-glx and nvidia-kernel-source it fails b/c they don't exist here (on the mirror). however the nvidia-glx-legacy and nvidia-kernel-legacy-source packages are there. when i viewed this mirror with firefox, sarge and sid have the packages but not etch. i have no idea why this is?. go see for yourself- http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/.
i think this is very important for the developers. thank you

I can verify this. Those two packages show up in apt-cache and synaptic. If I do a dist-upgrade (running Sid) it lists those packages as going to be updated. The download fails. Browser over to the packages, and there is no nvidia-glx or nvidia-kernel package that is listed in synaptic.

So what gives? How can a package NOT exist, but show up as being upgradeable?
