lulz: i was not expecting AT ALL that icecat, suggested publicly, the only package i needed (for now), the kick start, would fail to install... (lol: please tell murphy to leave the room)...

when is fixed 'there' do i use "pull" or "package upgrade"?

hi... :)

i'm just a gun fan...

i use linux since 2000, debian.
had a try with nixos, then i found guix.
i' running it on top of jessie to use icecat as richard stallman suggests.

i'm doing it for the kick's of it.
i barely really understand what you say.

i just want to use icecat and get acquainted with the new gnu system and integrate it well along with debian... for now.

from tukaani.org/xz:


Availability of .tar.gz and .tar.bz2 files of certain old XZ Utils versions
have been temporary suspended because they are consume too much of the web
hosting bandwidth quota. The files will be restored in November 2015, but

It would be nice if developers of source-based distributions had their own
mirrors from where the users' computers would download the source packages.
It's not good if a package manager on every user's machine downloads the
