    minimal install, package manager

    Using the minimal cd on a powerbook G4. At the install package manager stage for apt, a box pops up to type in the 'ubuntu archive mirror' which from some googling seems to be (for me) ie.archive.ubuntu.com

    Then it asks for the 'ubuntu archive mirror directory' and has /ubuntu/ports pre-filled in.

    http://ie.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/
    I don't see ubuntu-ports in this above page.
    How do I solve this?

    Can you not set it manually to the UK one? ports.ubuntu.com with directory /ubuntu-ports/
