What distro are you using? What is the right repository? The correct spelling is Pidgin.

im using debian etch on an i386 intel processor. and im using the repository they specify in knufl's link, only problem is, when i add "sid" as the distribution on the line in sources.list, when i apt-get update, it gives me this error at the end:
Reading package lists... Error!
-E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room
E: Error occurred while processing squashfs-modules-2.6.26-1-amd64 (NewVersion1)E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.de.debian.org_debian_dists_sid_main_binary-i386_Packages
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.-
but when i replace sid with etch, it doesnt give me that error when i update. also, when i install and extract the miro tarball, and then i cd platform/gtk-x11, when is what they say to do, and ./run.sh, it says:
-Traceback (most recent call last):
File "setup.py", line 90, in ?
from Pyrex.Distutils import build_ext
ImportError: No module named Pyrex.Distutils
-
i know this insnt necessary, but im just saying.

Too many repositories enabled?

If you have multiple repositories enabled you may overrun the apt-cache. If you REALLY want to have multiple repositories, there may be a few things you can do here.

The first thing would be to temporarily comment out Sid, then do the following command from a root enabled terminal:

apt-get clean

Then re-enable Sid by uncommenting it, then try the command:

apt-get update

If this works, then you are all set. If it does not work, then comment out Etch, Testing, or one of the other repositories you have, then try

apt-get update

again. If it works you will be ready to install packages from Sid. If Sid has never been enabled previously on your system, expect to update quite a few packages unless the packages you are changing have very few library or package dependencies.

What Masenick is saying (gently) is that it appears you have no clue what you are doing. I agree. You can't be mixing repositories in that manner if you expect your system to work.

Your best bet is to upgrade to Lenny, but I'm not confident you can manage it. Probably Ubuntu, Mint, Mephis, or some other newbie oriented distro would be more suitable for you than Debian.
