    Can't get packages


    I've had this problem with most every Debian system I've used, but now it's becoming a real problem. I need to download ethereal for this networking class I'm taking so that I can do my homework, and when I try to download it through synaptic it fails right away saying that the packages cannot be found. What can I do about this?

    Have you tried another apt mirror?
