package is not available


Hi,
I want to install a package from repository and it is exists there but I don't know why it says "it is not available"
Code:
mahmood@mpc:~$ sudo apt-get install codeanalyst
codeanalyst               codeanalyst-kernelmodule
mahmood@mpc:~$ sudo apt-get install codeanalyst
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package codeanalyst is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package codeanalyst has no installation candidate
any idea about that?

Hello,

Apparently it's not available in the repositories, that is if you have set up your repositories correctly. I've done a search on my LMDE (Debian testing) and got nothing. From the developers site, if it is this software you're looking for, it seems that they only have source code and RPM files. Only found some deb files for older version, have a look here. You either could use the old version (deb file), use alien to convert RPM to deb, or compile from source.

Kind regards,

Eric
