    Aptitude cannot find package "xen-utils-4.1"


    Hello Linux Community,

    I have been trying to install the package "xen-utils-4.1" with my debian 6 machine, but aptitude does not recognize it as a package name (it only sees "xen-utils-4.0").

    As far as I have been able to determine, "xen-utils-4.1" is a completely legitimate package and should be available for my debian release.

    Would anyone have any information as to how I can have it recognize this package, or perhaps why this package is not being acknowledged by aptitude?

    Thanks,

    -Misiu

    Hello,

    In Debian Stable (currently Squeeze), there is generally only one version of a package. For Squeeze, it's currently 4.0. If you want to install 4.1, you can enable the testing repo if you like, or install it from a deb that you manually download...or install from source or tar.gz if available.
