Failed to fetch... [SOLVED]

Postby 4w6gte on Sun Sep 16, 2012 8:16 pm

I know I'm not the first to get this, I've read several threads of others having the same thing but I don't want to do anything rash without asking. These sources have been giving a fail to fetch error for roughly a month now, do they just not exist any more? Should I remove them from my sources list? And for future reference, how would I troubleshoot this... like what steps do I take to find out if the repos are needed, or no longer exist, or are just temporarily down. Thanks in advance :)

that ppa has no builds for precise/maya https://launchpad.net/~adamkoczur/+archive/gtk1.2

for future reference the best way to troubleshot issues like this is to go directly to launchpad home page https://launchpad.net/ and in the search box look for the ppa in question: this here is adamkoczur gives you a page like this https://launchpad.net/+search?field.text=adamkoczur ; second result is relevant for our query because gtk1.2 is also in the error message; if we go to that page https://launchpad.net/~adamkoczur/+archive/gtk1.2 we see that the last build was 86 weeks ago (so this tells us that this ppa is no longer maintained) and the releases supported are maverick, lucid and karmic
