    archived apt sources for Sarge


    Talk about frustrating!! There must be an archive apt source for a Sarge net install someplace! But none that I can find in the last two days! I know that sarge is "superceded" but this box does not know it, and requires Sarge, unless I wanna just toss it.... really close at this point. Anyone w/ any ideas please? Barring that, perhaps someone knows where I could get the cd's , Sarge Powerpc? Or do I gotta toss this sucker and drop a whole $50.00 on a PeeCee and have Puppy running in 5 Mins???
    Any ideas appreciated... TIA RP

    Why does your computer require Sarge? Why can't you upgrade?

    Anyway, it's here: Debian -- Distribution Archives

    Oh! I can update if all I want is command line! There is no way she will go w/X on this old mac! I already tried ... more than once! the old kernel that the mac needs [nu-bus] don't play w/ updated X among a couple other apps.. That archive dist. seems good... unfortunately It don't work... been fighting w/ it for a long couple days...Thanks tho, it may be all I get unless I find a cd set!!! Sure wish I could get it to "take". RP

    Edit:Boy am I Red-Faced!!!! Had main contrib when it should have been contrib main!!!
    Thanks for making me double take reed!!! I'm plodding away again.. RP

    Glad you got it working! I was going to suggest posting your sources.list, since it seemed the archive should be good.
