Default suse 9.3 install: E: Couldn't find package ncftp

Hi,
Your howto site looks promising. I've followd instructions so far, but, having installed apt, I am experiencing difficulties with the installation of certain packages, notably
ncftp, quota, and now mysql. A transcript of my shell session is attached.
Any ideas anyone?
Thanks, Arthur

Please post /etc/apt/sources.list here. Do you use a 32-bit or a 64-bit system?

Default suse 9.3 install: E: Couldn't find package ncftp

I'm ruuning on a pentium 4, (T30 laptop) which I believe to be a 32 bit system.
The file you ask for is
A very basic sources.list file.
# Remove "base" in case you are behind a slow connection.
# Fastest repository comes first, with netselect it is possible to determine
# the fastest repository easily.
# Visit the server to determine which apt components are provided.
rpm ftp://mirrors.mathematik.uni-bielefe...inux/suse/apt/ SuSE/9.3-i386 update security rpmkeys
rpm ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/ SuSE/9.3-i386 update security rpmkeys

# The list with all available components can be found at:
# http://linix01.gwdg.de/apt4rpm
# Some components provide experimental software, select wisely!
# http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/ap...urces.list.FTP

# Consult the link above if you want to include uri's for src rpms

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was able to make good progress regardless, using Yast and apt together. It took a bit of doing, but so far
I seem to be ok. Thanks a bunch for a useful howto. It is nice to know that the expertize is there when needed.

Your /etc/apt/sources.list is wrong. It should contain only

Code:
rpm ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/ SuSE/9.3-i386 base update security
as described on http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_suse_9.3_p4.

Please change that and run
Code:
apt-get update
afterwards.

Thanks. I did not realize that the truncated instruction line could be scrolled.
