    Could be that the repositories are just down for maintenance. I'd try again in an hour or so.
    If I could figure out how to scuba dive & hack at the same time, there would be nothing I couldn't do...

    I've just filed a bug report, for some reason, the md5sum of the .deb file does not match what is listed in the repository metadata file located under /var/lib/apt/lists/

    Let's hope someone sees it and fixes it.

    I know that would let you install the xsser package but I'd rather someone confirm that the md5sum of the .deb file is correct and that the sources metadata file is reporting the wrong md5sum.
