I try to compile softwares with a 32 bits
libc, old enough to be compatible with my customers.
So I have installed Debian Squeeze (6) 64 bits this last days (so after deprecation date) in a ProXmox container.
I have set the archive repositories to allow me to update / install packages, it works. My
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian squeeze main contrib non-free deb http://archive.debian.org/debian squeeze-lts main contrib non-free # Backports deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-archive/debian-backports squeeze-backports main contrib non-free # Security deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-security squeeze/updates main contrib non-free
I have to say, there was a lot of outdated GPG Keys, and after update, a few are always outdated, they seem to be unsupported anymore.
My current version of
dpkg is 1.15.11 the original Squeeze versio where the
multiarch functionnality is not present. It apears only in 1.16...
Good enough, the backports listed upper contain wheezy packages where dpkg is in version 1.16.9 .
But I am not able to install this backports. When I run the command
apt-get install -t squeeze-backports dpkg
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done dpkg is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
apt-get policy dpkg returns
dpkg: Installed: 1.15.11 Candidate: 1.15.11 Version table: *** 1.15.11 0 500 http://archive.debian.org/debian/ squeeze/main amd64 Packages 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
If I ask, it's because I am pretty sure to have set things right. I guess I am on the frontier where archived versions have there limits.
