    repository extras

    While looking for some new and updated software, I found what I was looking for under http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/

    Before I just start downloading stuff, what exactly is this tree? Is it associated with any particular version of ubuntu? Is there any way of accessing it through apt?

    tanks,
    steve.

    I don´t know which version of Ubuntu you are using but if it is Hardy edit your source list

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    and add this lines

    deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy-security main restricted
    deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy-security main restricted
    deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy-security universe
    deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy-security universe
    deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy-security multiverse
    deb http://hr.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hardy-proposed restricted main multiverse universe
    deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy-security multiverse
    If you are not using Hardy then in these lines replace hardy with your version name.Save file and close it.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

    No, that's not correct. I am running hardy. I do get the security updates. Those come from http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/hardy.

    What I am asking about is http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/ and more specifically, http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/po.../gadmin-dhcpd/ and http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/po...g/gadmin-bind/

    These are not in the normal hardy distribution. ...Hardy has the older versions wrapped up in "gadmintools". I need the newer versions.

    So the question still remains, what is this "pool" tree? Is it "safe" to use stuff found in there? And, is there a way to get to it through apt?

    thanks,
    steve.
