I am running Debian Etch on an NSLU2 SLUG (266 Mhz). I've tried to download & install the unstable version of SlimServer using the instructions on the SlimServer website to add a first line to /etc/apt/sources.list and then to run apt-get update.
However the packages do not seem to be there ...

SLUG-2:~# apt-get update
Ign http://debian.slimdevices.com unstable Release.gpg
Get:1 http://debian.slimdevices.com unstable Release [602B]
Err http://debian.slimdevices.com unstable/main Packages
404 Not Found
Fetched 602B in 1s (505B/s)
Failed to fetch http://debian.slimdevices.com/dists/unstable/main/binary-arm/Packages.gz 404 Not Found
Reading package lists... Done
W: Couldn't stat source package list http://debian.slimdevices.com unstable/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/debian.slimdevices.com_dists_unstable_main_binary-arm_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
W: Couldn't stat source package list http://debian.slimdevices.com unstable/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/debian.slimdevices.com_dists_unstable_main_binary-arm_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)

What have I failed to do? Is there an alternative way to install?
Can anyone help?

The Slim deb repo only supports i386 and amd64. You'll have to install manually (along with mysql and the required perl modules). Search the forums and you'll find a number of NSLU2 discussions.
