I'm having some trouble with installing graph-tool in my Debian Jessie
distribution with apt-get. Following the installation instructions I can
either add "jessie" as the distro, in which case the packages are not found:

W: Failed to fetch
http://downloads.skewed.de/apt/jessie/dists/jessie/main/source/Sources  404
Not Found

W: Failed to fetch
404  Not Found

W: Failed to fetch
404  Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones
used instead.

If I try "sid" or "stretch" I get dependency errors instead:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 python-graph-tool : Depends: libboost-coroutine1.62.0 but it is not
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Is there any way to get graph-tool for Jessie (apart from compiling it from
source)? I've been using it on my MacBook, and would really like to have it
here as well. It's a great module!

Best regards,


Hi Hans,
it seems that jessie is no longer supported, only stretch and sid are. I suppose that this is due to lack of support of some other library (i.e. boost).
However, you cannot choose stretch or sid if your distro is not one of those. So you need to either upgrade to stretch or sid (I did that just last week) and then install graph-tools, or you no longer can use it.
