    294294== Q11/ Does mondo work with Debian/Ubuntu distributions? ==
    295295  Yes, your best bet are the official Debian packages. Andree, the Debian maintainer, is usually also on the mailing list. Look at DistributionPackaging
    296   If you want to use the packages made upstream for Debian/Ubutu, you need to know that numbering schema are different between upstream mondo (2.x.y) and Debian packages (2.xy),so you should adapt your /etc/apt/preferences file to avoid updates of mondo with apt-get with indeed older versions. Do the following:
    297 {{{
    298 $ wget ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/ubuntu/8.04/mondorescue.sources.list
    299 $ sudo sh -c "cat mondorescue.sources.list >> /etc/apt/sources.list"
    300 $ sudo sh -c "cat >> /etc/apt/preferences << EOF
