Not sure what you mean, you seem to be talking about two different things: our PPA and the official Ubuntu repositories. The version in our PPA for Lucid Lynx is 1.2.0~pre1~bzr422+36-0ubuntu1~lucid1:

https://launchpad.net/~linuxdcpp-team/+archive/ppa/+packages

This is basically 1.1.0 despite its label since we haven't had any major code changes after 1.1.0. The version in the official 10.04 Ubuntu repositories is 1.0.3, as you mentioned. If you're asking for 1.1.0 to make its way into 10.04's official repositories, that's not up to us it's up to Ubuntu. 1.1.0 will definitely be in 11.10, but I can't even get them to merge it into 11.04 let alone 10.10 or 10.04 (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linuxdcpp/+bug/764196).

I have added your PPA to my synaptic sources. But it still installs version LinuxDC++ version: 1.0.3 (Core version: 0.698 )
see :

#cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linuxdcpp-team-release-lucid.list
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/linuxdcpp-team/release/ubuntu lucid main

did I miss something?

sorry, looks like your PPA isn't properly organized.

#sudo apt-get update
Hit http://ppa.launchpad.net lucid/main Packages
Ign http://ppa.launchpad.net lucid/main Packages
Err http://ppa.launchpad.net lucid/main Packages
  404 Not Found
W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/linuxdcpp-team/release/ubuntu/dists/lucid/main/binary-amd64/Packages.gz 404 Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

when I brose to http://ppa.launchpad.net/linuxdcpp-team/release/ubuntu/dists there is only maverick and natty, but no lucid. I think you should add lucid branch to the dists and I will report back if my apt-get takes it from there

Problem is related to PPA not with releases. PPA unconfigured.

Sergey Basalaev (sbasalaev) said : #4

Which PPA have you added? Try
apt-add-repository ppa:linuxdcpp-team/ppa

Sergey Basalaev (sbasalaev) said : #5

Or add to your sources.list
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/linuxdcpp-team/ppa/ubuntu lucid main

wadkar (wadkar) said : #6

I have already added the ppa

sudhi@Yttrium:~$ sudo -i apt-add-repository ppa:linuxdcpp-team/ppa
[sudo] password for sudhi:

and I already have the sources.list

sudhi@Yttrium:~$ grep linuxdcpp /etc/apt/*/*
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/linuxdcpp-team-ppa-lucid.list:deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/linuxdcpp-team/ppa/ubuntu lucid main

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/linuxdcpp-team-release-lucid.list.save:deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/linuxdcpp-team/release/ubuntu lucid main

but I still get following error

sudhi@Yttrium:~$ sudo apt-get update

do you have amd64 packages in your PPA or just i386/i686 ??

wadkar (wadkar) said : #7

when you look at
W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/linuxdcpp-team/release/ubuntu/dists/lucid/main/binary-amd64/Packages.gz 404 Not Found
and browse to http://ppa.launchpad.net/linuxdcpp-team/release/ubuntu/dists you dont see lucid but just natty and maverick

Please fix your PPA

wadkar (wadkar) said : #8

one strange thing happened just now

sudhi@Yttrium:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages will be upgraded:
  apturl apturl-common flashplugin-installer linuxdcpp ubuntu-tweak

so looks like linuxdcpp got some update from somewhere, lets look at the version

Get:2 http://ppa.launchpad.net/linuxdcpp-team/ppa/ubuntu/ lucid/main linuxdcpp 1.2.0~pre1~bzr422+36-0ubuntu1~lucid1 [7,767kB]

so its picking up version 1.2.0 from ppa but it complains 404 when i update the ppa. Strange

I can confirm that version from linuxdcplusplus Help>About
LinuxDC++ version: 1.2.0~pre1~bzr Core version: 0.75

but I still get 404 not found when i do apt-get update
sudhi@Yttrium:~$ sudo apt-get update
Hit http://in.archive.ubuntu.com lucid Release.gpg
<snip>

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I think I am missing something important here

Sergey Basalaev (sbasalaev) said : #9

To stop 404 complains from apt remove files
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/linuxdcpp-team-release-lucid.list
and
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/linuxdcpp-team-release-lucid.list.save

They point at wrong PPA

Razzloss (razzloss) said : #10

That is because you have both the Release PPA and the daily builds PPA added.

Release PPA contains only Ubuntu 10.10 and 11.04 packages, and gives you the 404 error for other versions.

Daily builds are done for other ubuntu versions as well, which is the one you have now installed.

wadkar (wadkar) said : #11

Thanks Sergey Basalaev, that solved my question.

wadkar (wadkar) said : #12

@Razzloss
now that I am on 10.04, I am stuck with ubuntu's default package repo right?
I don't get stable releases from this PPA for 10.04 lucid , is that right ?

this means one should not add this PPA for 10.04 lucid stable releases !

Razzloss (razzloss) said : #13

True, at least at the moment. PPA is pretty much Steven's domain, so I can't give you any reason why there isn't a release package for 10.04.

Steven Sheehy (steven-sheehy) said : #14

I added 1.1.0 for 10.04 to the release PPA

wadkar (wadkar) said : #15

thanks @Steven
do i need to remove and install linuxdcpp again?

# sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

# cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linuxdcpp-team-ppa-lucid.list
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/linuxdcpp-team/ppa/ubuntu lucid main

or am I still missing something??

Steven Sheehy (steven-sheehy) said : #16

Depends on what you want to do: do you want our stable 1.1.0 release or our daily build of our potentially unstable current codebase with the latest changes? Right now you have our daily PPA installed which has a version greater than 1.1.0. If you want to help support us by testing and filing bugs I recommend you stick with the daily PPA, otherwise go with the stable release.

Right now our daily PPA is almost identical to 1.1.0 with some extra translations, but it could become unstable at some point if we start making lots of changes. If you want 1.1.0 you'll have to uninstall the 1.2.0~pre1 daily package and remove the daily ppa, then add the release PPA.

Can you help with this problem?
