installing unetbootin in debian lenny


Hi,I'm using debian lenny, I need to install unetbootin I figured out that this package is only in sid and squeeze repos and at this time I don't want to upgrade to one of them. also I the installation requires to upgrade important packages such as qt and libc6. my questions are:

1. would be dangerous for lenny to use the sid's repos just for install unetbootin? then do I have to downgrade?

2. do you know some other packages in the lenny's repos that works like unetbootin?

3. do you have any suggestions?

regards

I got your fix dude

apparently, Unetbootin isn't available thru Lenny repos

The work around is you go get the reg no-specific one here
http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
hit the download button for Linux, the one beside windows
its called "unetbootin-377"

Take that after downloading. open a terminal and become root
then copy it to /usr/bin
or call up your file manager as root
Code:
su pcmanfm
or whatever your filemanager is..

Now, you gotta make a menu entry
I need to know what desktop your using?
Gnome/KDE,etc

To test it or run it
again become root in terminal
and do

Code:
unetbootin-377
it should pop up

sorry
I forgot to mention that yes you need p7zip and mtools or syslinux or both
now, did you give it a menu entry or no?

what wm are you using?
gnome or what?
