Aiccu/Installation On Debian
This howto explains how to install Aiccu on Debian Lenny and Etch.
To install Aiccu on Debian Lenny/Etch is easy. Aiccu is included in the Lenny repository and there is a backport for Etch. If you have a previous version of Debian, follow the steps to upgrade to Debian Lenny.
Use apt-get to install Aiccu.
apt-get install aiccu
You will get up a menu with IPv6 providers, choose SixXS.
Then type in username and password to your SixXS account. That was all.
You have to enable backports to get Aiccu or manually download it from packages.debian.org
For more information about how to add the etch-backports repository to your sources.list and how to prefer packages from etc-backports, see this site

If you have Debian Etch (stable) e.g. and you want to change to Debian Lenny (unstable):
Edit your sources.list.
change the name of your version of Debian to lenny. It should look similar to the following:
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib deb-src http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib
