    I'm new to Ubuntu (used to Gentoo) and I am searching for the correct way to install newer packages than provided by the installed release of Ubuntu.

    I need to install MySQL 5 on Ubuntu 5.10.
    (I can NOT upgrade to Dapper, because the Server doesn't boot after upgrading to Dapper. Suggestions welcome, but thats not the topic here.)

    Of course I can download the deb-files from or from but what about the various dependencies? Do I have to manually download each dependend package?

    Please run
    apt-get update
    and then
    apt-cache search mysql
    Have a look at the results and install the desired packages like this:
    apt-get install [I]package1 package2 ...[/I]
