Another option would be to set 'APT::Default-Release "stable";' in /etc/apt/apt.conf, add a source for lenny and try to install with 'aptitude install -t lenny homebank'. If this doesn't pull in too many dependencies (where 'too many' depends on your luck/guts/phase of the moon/...) than you're good to go.I got it to install on my Etch system by doing this: download 3 packages: homebank homebank-data libofx4 install in this order: libofx4 homebank-data homebank to download, get them here: http://packages.debian.org/sid/i386/libofx4/download http://packages.debian.org/sid/gnome/homebank

Hmmm ... not so cool. So this is where I am stuck. Especially since apt-get install libstdc++6 seems to kick up an error about version numbers, wherein the present installed version is more recent than the recommended version number.
I have decided to go for kmymoney2 instead. :-)
At least that installed fine.
