I’ve added several packages to the repository recently. I still use maverick, the last release before Unity became the default. I intend to move to Unity with precise, but until then I’ve been backporting things to maverick.


  1. maverick: fceux 2.1.5, backported from precise
  2. maverick: get-iplayer 2.8.0, taken directly from precise
  3. lucid: logcheck 1.3.14, backported from precise to correct a problem with wildcard globs in the lucid release

Update 2011-08-06: BackupPC has been removed from the repo. A newer release is available in maverick-backports.

Minor updates to the repo for Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat:

  • BackupPC 3.2.0 has been added. This is the same package from Debian Sid, and works on Lucid as well. I don’t recommend a non-LTS release for your backup solution, but if your hardware requires a newer kernel, you might need this. I’ve tested it myself.
  • Clementine 0.5.3 has been removed. You can now find a newer release in maverick-backports.
