The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain phpbb2 packages. For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.13+1-6sarge3. For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon. We recommend that you upgrade your phpbb2 package. Upgrade Instructions - -------------------- wget url will fetch the file for you dpkg -i file.deb will install the referenced file. If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for sources.list as given below: apt-get update will update the internal database apt-get upgrade will install corrected packages You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the footer to the proper configuration.
