Hi Junxiao,

thank you for the prompt reply and the link. I was not aware of that one. Definitely good to know!

I can't comment on PPA availability for 15.10.

Per platform policy http://named-data.net/codebase/platform/documentation/ndn-platform-development-guidelines/#Build_support , 14.10 is no longer supported, and 15.10 support will be dropped as soon as 16.04 is released.

I suggest sticking with 14.04 LTS, which shall be supported until 18.04 release that is still 2 years away.

Yours, Junxiao

Dear all,

I followed the steps on http://named-data.net/doc/NFD/current/INSTALL.html#install-nfd-using-the-ndn-ppa-repository-on-ubuntu-linux and ended up here:

~$ sudo apt-get update
W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/named-data/ppa/ubuntu/dists/wily/main/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found
W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/named-data/ppa/ubuntu/dists/wily/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Will NFD installation using NDN PPA repository soon support Ubuntu 15.10 or do I have to go back on 14.10? I really liked that way of installing NFD. (And yes, installing from source still works.)
