Hey everybody,
I installed ubuntu 6 on my Sparc Sublade 1000 because it was the only one that would install. I was just wondering if ubuntu still has its repositeries that will work with 6.

Its a sweet classic by the way. =)

Yes, I believe you can, but you will have to manually change your sources.list

Perhaps someone else can give you the details.

Found it from here: http://atlanticlinux.ie/blog/?p=143

1. Edit /etc/apt/sources.list
2. Replace all occurrences of archive.ubuntu.com with old-releases.ubuntu.com
3. sudo apt-get update
4. sudo apt-get install <package name>
