Bug Description

Binary package hint: knetload

When I try to install knetload from the official repos in my Jaunty 9.04 box, I get this:

sudo apt-get install knetload
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package knetload is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package knetload has no installation candidate

However, I can manually install knetload from launchpad (jaunty official repo?)
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/jaunty/amd64/knetload/2.3-3.1ubuntu1

I have not changed jaunty's default /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ jaunty main restricted
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ jaunty main restricted

KNetload has been removed from distribution from Kubuntu 8.10 onwards. Unfortunately this means that no more bugfixes or improvements will be made for this application. Thanks for taking the time to help make Kubuntu better.

Changed in knetload (Ubuntu):
