    when attempting to install mysql server and client on a base debian 4.0 install I am getting the following error:

    Package mysql-server is not available, but is refered to by another package. Theis may mean the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
    E: Package mysql-server has no installation canidate.

    I checked the sources.list, I am not sure if I need to add another source or what to do.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Could you post the content of your sources.list here?

    yes, I will post it later this afternoon or this evening when I get some free time.

    It is the default list though, two entries for the cdrom which are commented out and the two default debian addresses.

    THanks for your reply.

    Have you tried
    apt-get update

    I tried that Falko. The only thing in the sources.list file was the default package servers. I added the two servers you added in your Perfect Desktop for Ubuntu and ran apt-get update and was then able to intall mysql-server and mysql-client.

    I would think these packages would be in Ubuntu's default repository?

    Anyways I got it fixed, thanks for everyone's replies.

    You should run apt-get update from time to time, because the packages in the repositories get updated from time to time and then don't match the ones in your local apt database anymore. I think this was the problem here.
