I am just now again using the laptop I installed Hardy onto a loong time ago.
GetDeb stopped working for me about 6mos ago.
It still will not work today.
I'm pretty sure I'm doing it right, adding deb http://ubuntu.org.ua/ getdeb/ to the bottom of sources.list. It gets the update list, but 404s whenever it tries to actually download the new packages.
I mean really, if it's been down this long, how can I not find any evidence that it is? The main site seems to say nothing about 6mos+ downtime...
