cdrom-detect in Debian Squeeze
 
I'm trying to install cdrom-detect and it's just not working out. I can find it here:

http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/cdrom-detect

...so I know it's a valid package. My apt-get sources are all good and up to date, but I can't get this program installed (or any of it's dependencies) via apt-get. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Are you going to post the error message you are getting or what?

Also post your sources.list.

What is cdrom-detect supposed to do that your system doesn't already do, now? IOW, what system functionality are you missing? The link you provided points to something that's a part of udeb. There is a specific warning on that page:

Warning: This package is intended for the use in building debian-installer images only. Do not install it on a normal Debian system.

Well.. as far as I can see, it's a udeb, and .udebs are non-policy-compliant packages used as debian-installer components and you can't install them on a normal system.
