I have installed the squeeze version of Debian on a computer in offline mode (no internet connection during installation).
After the installation (that was successful) I edited
/etc/apt/sources.list to comment the cd-rom source and uncomment the official Debian repositories. With the computer connected to Internet, the package database seems to update as planned (with
apt-get update) but I can't find the
wireless-tools package in the repository:
apt-cache search wireless does not return anything.
here is the content of
# # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.6 _Squeeze_ - Official i386 CD Binary-1 20120929-15:56]/ squeeze main # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.6 _Squeeze_ - Official i386 CD Binary-1 20120929-15:56]/ squeeze main deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main deb-src http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main # squeeze-updates, previously known as 'volatile' # A network mirror was not selected during install.

Any idea? Thanks
