    Why is etch still linked to the unstable distribution? How can I chroot into etch?
    Thank you in advance for any help.

    This script is used by debootstrap as a "recipe" how to make the
    chroot and currently there's no difference between them all except the
    package versions and dependencies that are dynamicaly resolved.

    To chroot into etch you'd need to create a chroot using debootstrap
    (man debootstrap) and then use chroot command to change to it (man
    chroot).

    ok, thank you. Now I'm having problems in installing nearly any new packages while jailed within etch:

    # apt-get install dpkg-dev
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.

    Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
    the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
    that package should be filed.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    dpkg-dev: Depends: dpkg (>= 1.13.20) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: perl5
    Depends: perl-modules but it is not going to be installed
    E: Broken packages

    here is my /etc/apt/sources.list:

    deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian etch main contrib #non-free
    deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian etch main contrib #non-free

    deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib #non-free
    deb-src http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib #non-free

    what may be missing or misconfigured?

    Maybe you haven ot did an apt-get update?

    Anyway, this isn't on topic on debian-boot and I'd suggest you to move
    it to debian-user mailing list since it's the proper place for this
    kind of discussion and support request.
