apt-get fails

I am trying to setup lighttpd on a power pmac. I have the power pmac connected to the web through a DNS server and I can ping www.google.com successfully from the pp. When I try to do an

apt-get update

or

apt-get build-dep lighttpd

I get a long list of error messages about not being able to resolve the mirror.anl.gov

sample error message.

Err http://mirror.anl.gov lenny/main libglib2.0-0 2.16.6-2

Could not resolve 'mirror.anl.gov'

 

I have tried pinging this server from my mac as well as the pp and I am unable to reach it from either machine.

 

I have the source code for lighttpd but when i try to run the configuration program it give me the following error

configure: error: pcre-config not found, install the pcre-devel package or build with --without-pcre

 

I am in the process of setting up lighttpd to host a cgi webpage programmed in C++ so I could probably compile without pcre as it is related to pearl but i would like to build it with pearl support.

I think this forum link below is the same problem I am seeing. I don't know how I would go about changing the update source as it suggest in the link below or if it is a good idea.

Here is the output from my apt-get update it looks to be the same issue discussed in the link above.

I am a little feather along now. When I made the change listed in the other thread I was able to get it to start an update but I ended up with an error need to add sources to source.list. I found a debian source list generator below but i don't know which version of debian is the correct one to build a source list for. My concern is that i don't want to have the update try to update the kernel by mistake.

1.) Make your disk writable

 

mount -o remount,rw /

 

2.) Next you must update the repository list file. Debian lenny is used on a 460 CPU so you must change the repositories to archive.debian.org.

 

deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ lenny main non-free contrib

deb-src http://archive.debian.org/debian/ lenny main non-free contrib

deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-security/ lenny/updates main non-free contrib

deb-src http://archive.debian.org/debian-security/ lenny/updates main non-free contrib

 

The sources.list file placed in /etc/apt should look like what is above

 

3.) next issue the apt-get update command to reload the repositories. You can disregard the KEYEXPIRED warning message that comes back

 

 

4.) next issue the apt-get install lighttpd command to install lighttpd

 

lighttpd is now installed.

 

5.) Make sure the modifications from the apt-get install command make it to the readonly etc folder. Do this by issuing the following command

 

cp -a /.readonly/etc-tmpfs-mirror/* /.readonly/etc/

 

6.) Put the disk back to readonly mode

mount -o remount,ro /

Henry I have to change the port for lighttpd to port 81. There is a program mono listening on port 80. Any idea what mono is and why it would be listening on port 80? I ask because 80 is the default http port so it would be nice to put the web server on 80 but I don't know what mono is or why it would be on port 80.
