I downloaded a vm appliance – ubuntu edgy server – by Joao InacioI (Thanks mate!) and it was quick and easy. But it did not come with openssh-server (sshd) where I can ssh into… *sigh* so here what i had to go through to get it.

sudo apt-get install openssh-server

But it didn’t work : “Package not available… But referred to by another package” … after googling around, I realised it was becasue the had to include the universe repository which apt-get depends on.

sudo vi /etc/apt/source.list

follow the comments in that file, I basically uncommented the last 2 lines.

sudo apt-get update

this will do and update

sudo apt-get install openssh-server

this thime it works !!
