Unable to install SPECIFIC libraries gtkmm 1.2.10 and libsigc++ 1.0.4 in debian


I'm trying to get this old PCMICIA network card (Cisco Aironet 350)and I need the specific libraries listed in the title to get the installing script to run...

I have already tried
"apt-get install libsigc++" and
"apt-get libgtkmm-2.4-dev"
(both of these commands ran ok)

The driver installation script does recognize libsigc++ as present, but it doesn't recognize "gtkmm" as installed. The script does return a warning requesting specific versions:
gtkmm 1.2.10 and libsigc++ 1.0.4

I'm running debian 2.6.32-5-486. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks

still having issues with libgtkmm

I downloaded the links you posted, and I now have the right version of libsigc++ on my system,
but I can't get the libgtkmm to install. I downloaded the links you mentioned, but as I checked through the links, there are dependencies, and dependencies on the dependencies, etc..
Is there a way to refer apt-get install to where this older version of the library is?
when I try apt-get install libgtkmm, I get the 2.4 version.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

I guess, you can add 'etch' to /etc/apt/sources.list :
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
.. and then add this line :

deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-archive/debian/ etch main contrib

Next : sudo apt-get update &&
sudo apt-get install libsigc++-dev libgtkmm-dev

that did it

Thanks. That gave me the versions I needed.
The whole operation of getting these drivers to work seems to be way out of my scope, but at least i got to learn something.
Thanks
