Debian Volatile on Planet Mirror

Finally got around to chasing down why the Debian Volatile mirror on Planet Mirror was unavailable. Turns out the version of aptitude in Sarge doesn't like 302's and Planet Mirror is redirecting http requests for files from and to

Fairy Nuff. Bit unpleasant changing protocols there but it's not the end of the world.

So the working apt sources.list line now looks like this

deb sarge/volatile main

DSpam Packages For Sarge

I've uploaded the DSpam packages I compiled for Sarge to my unofficial Debian repo. This is a checkout from pkg-dspam svn repo on 06/02/2006 and DSpam 3.6.3.

Put this in your sources.list to use them

deb sarge dspam

I had to include dbconfig-common from Etch so the database drivers dependencies are met. Not ideal but it's much nicer for new installs.

There's a few glitches in the packaging I'm going to submit patches to the packaging team for. Nothing show-stopping just a few minor annoyances.

The biggest annoyance was discovering my global database, that I'd carefully upgraded from 2.10 to 3.0, 3.0 to 3.2 and then 3.2 to 3.4, is empty. The stats table lists the old totals but there's nothing in the tokens table. This would explain why Tanya's been getting a lot more missed spams (her database is still tiny). So I'll have to feed the SpamAssassin corpus back in again. bleh

All in all though the upgrade from 2.10 to 3.6.3 has been painless.
