Cannot get files from PPA (404 error)

Post by skirtum »

I've been trying to download packages from your official PPA for a week (though it was a temporary problem, but it seems like it's not). My efforts are unsuccessfull, I get:

http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handb ... ce/Sources 404 Not Found
http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handb ... 6/Packages 404 Not Found
http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handb ... ce/Sources 404 Not Found
http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handb ... 6/Packages 404 Not Found

I've searched for 404 error in the forrum, but found only one topic (viewtopic.php?f=13&t=22230&p=103050&hilit=404#p103050) and it seems like the problem was with the wrong address there (not my case).

Or... maybe PPA is so smart and it see, that I'm on 12.04 Ubuntu? :) are there any possibilities to install HandBrake on it?

Hmm, I don't believe that packages have been released for Ubuntu 12.04 yet, seeing as it's not officially released until April 26th.

I haven't even made a nightly builds package for 12.04. 12.04 doesn't get released till the end of april. So some time between now and then, I'll find some time to add it to the nightly builds. A package for the 0.9.6 release will not be made available till after 12.04 final release.

As a work around you could download the deb's from the Oneiric PPA and install them manually... worked for me.

Haven't done an encode yet to see if there's any issues however the GUI loads correctly.
