Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that the package is simply not installable and a bug report against that package should be filed. The following information may help to resolve the situation:

Marking as "blocker" to show that I don't want to announce tahoe until this is fixed.

I've added foolscap-0.1.3 .debs to our apt repository for feisty, dapper, and edgy.

I still need to set up an etch machine so we can have both tahoe and foolscap debs.

I'm going to lower the priority of this one, since I think it should be ok for 3 out of 4 platforms.

we need an etch buildslave.

Also, I removed the dapper repository, since we decided to stop trying to build tahoe .debs for dapper (too many backports required). I've updated the DownloadDebianPackages page to mention this.

FWIW the current Packaging page says that feisty is the oldest Ubuntu that we support, so I interpret this topic as being sort of "above and beyond what we promised", and not necessarily as smooth as our support for feisty.

Or do I misunderstand and we should update that page to say that we support etch?

fixed, the etch buildslave is now pumping out etch .deb packages.

zooko: etch is the current stable debian release, so it roughly corresponds to ubuntu "feisty". It has mostly the same packages as feisty does, so it's easy to support both.

For the record, we currently provide .deb packages for:

  • ubuntu:
    • edgy (Ubuntu 6.10, released october 2006)
    • feisty (Ubuntu 7.04, released april 2007)
  • debian:
    • etch (Debian 4.0, released august 2007)
    • sid (Debian HEAD, never released)

I think tahoe should build from source ok on Ubuntu dapper (6.06, released june 2006, notable because Canonical will provide long-term support contracts for it), but the dependencies must be built manually (starting with setuptools), and there are no .debs available.

I think the existing .deb-building rules will work fine on the next release of Ubuntu (gutsy, scheduled for this fall).

closing this ticket now, since etch works.
