HAProxy Installation problem

I am installing HAProxy on Debian Etch and got this error when trying to get the packages from Lenny.

sudo apt-get update
Get:1 etch Release.gpg [386B]
Get:2 lenny Release.gpg [189B]
Get:3 etch/updates Release.gpg [189B]
Get:4 etch Release [58.2kB]

Reading package lists... Error!
E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room
E: Error occurred while processing wackamole (NewVersion1)
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

This is my apt sources.list
deb etch main
deb-src etch main

deb lenny main

deb etch/updates main contrib
deb-src etch/updates main contrib

This is my apt preferences
Package: *
Pin: release a=etch
Pin-Priority: 700

Package: *
Pin: release a=lenny
Pin-Priority: 650

Can I still proceed with the HAProxy installation according to the instruction? What is the problem with the error?

Open /etc/apt/apt.conf and put the following line into it:

APT::Cache-Limit "100000000";
Then run

apt-get update

HAProxy + Nginx
Hi Falko,

Thanks for the info. I ended up building HAProxy from souce :) and following your tutorial after that. Great tutorial you have there.

From your tutorial, you make use of Apache2. As I am also looking at using Nginx to replace Apache2, I found out that the Nginx does not have the ability to exclude the logging of the "check.txt" done by HAProxy. Does anyone know how do I work around this issue? Beside the fact that I still want logging to be enabled but without the constant logging of the "checks" from HAProxy.
