Hi Andy,

If you disable/delete the CD repository this should fix your problem.
Good Luck,


When you put it like that, its quite obvious isn't it? I'd worked out
that I was going to have to find where the CD was specified but it
hadn't occured to me that the CD was just another repository. I'd seen
this problem once before with another package but it disappeared
over-night. I guess the package was updated, so the CD was no longer the
appropriate place to load from. Thanks very much. I've learned a bit
more about the Debian Way.
