I am using Fink commander 0.5.4 to install gcc 4.2 or later versions, on a Mac running OS 10.5.8. Whenever I try to install gcc, I obtain this error.

Following instructions from the Fink/Fink commander website faq's, I also tried running "sudo apt-get update" and "fink scanpackages" in the terminal, but they also come up with similar errors, like below.

I suspect(ed) that the specified urls are incorrect & looked at the http://bindist.finkmirrors.net site, which further suggests the same. But I cannot figure what exact change I have to make to get this working. Please help me fix this issue.

    Hello Alexander

    I like your suggestion below:

    As another workaround, the files are available via the web. You can download them manually by using a browser or other download tool if you change "bindist/dists/fink-0.9.0" to "10.5/dists/stable" in the addresses given by the "failed to fetch" messages:

    Do you happen to have any thoughts on how to make this happen in Fink commander? As I mentioned above, running "sudo apt-get update" and "fink scanpackages" did not take care of the issue.

    This would require somebody rewriting FinkCommander. I don't have the expertise and I don't know if we currently have anyone active in the project who does.

    Another thing to try would be to edit /sw/etc/apt/sources.list as an administrator and add the following line under the one that says "# Put local modifications to this file below this line, or at the top."

    deb http://bindist.finkmirrors.net/10.5 stable main crypto

    (don't edit the current deb lines because fink will overwrite them)

    Then try using "sudo apt-get update" or the FinkCommander equivalent (Binary->Update) to see if the proper package descriptions are being used.

    I don't have a 10.5 environment installed right now, and so I can't easily test this myself.

    Thank you very much, I'll try that. If it does not work, I will try to update it from local source files.
