Please - a little kickstart for me :)?
Im running xandros linux, and im having trouble with apt-get (i was told this is the way to download packages easily and stuff)
i type, for example "apt-get install amsn" and it gives me this...
/home/dylan/Desktop# apt-get install amsn Reading Package Lists... Done Building Dependency Tree... Done Package amsn has no available version, but exists in the database. This typically means that the package was mentioned in a dependency and never uploaded, has been obsoleted or is not available with the contents of sources.list E: Package amsn has no installation candidate
/home/dylan/Desktop# apt-get install qt-amsn Reading Package Lists... Done Building Dependency Tree... Done E: Couldn't find package qt-amsn rroompc:/home/dylan/Desktop#
Thanks for any help!
