I have a very stripped Debian distro on a small custom computer that I purchased (don't know much about this distro as it was recommended on some site). The name is 'sid' and runs 126.96.36.199 kernel. Unfortunately it doesn't have any PPA's in the sources.list file so I cannot apt-get any software. I am trying to get libxml2 (Gnome package) for a program called xmllint.
Since I cannot apt-get this software I need to get each debian package. Going further it needs:
libxml2 depends > multiarch (the computer is i586 not i386) > libc > libc-dev > ... and so on until infinity.
This distro has the build-essentials installed but I can't instal libc and libc-dev alone as it leads to 100's of more dependencies.
Where can I go from here?
