Asked by elhoir on 2013-07-29

HIi all,
Im using Ubuntu 13.04, and i have installed boinc 7.0.27

i have noticed that trhere is a newer version (7.0.65) in backports, so i have tried to install it.

But, acconrding to apt, current installed version is "latest"

how can i fix this?=

this is my apt-cache policy output:

elhoir@elhoir-desktop:/etc/apt/apt.conf.d$ sudo apt-cache policy boinc
boinc:
  Instalados: 7.0.27+dfsg-5ubuntu0.12.04.1

Ubuntu does not automatically use backports. They need to be enabled first. Full details here:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBackports

What is the output of:

cat /etc/issue; uname -a

Thanks

@Warren Hill
they are already enabled

elhoir (jfarroyo82) said : #6

ok, i think i found the problem:

i have to type "apt-get install amarok/lucid-backports", isnt it?

elhoir (jfarroyo82) said : #7

apt-get install boinc/lucid-backports

sorry

Can't be /lucid-backports but must be /raring-backports of course.
