telnetd exists in the debian archives. If you have apt configured,
and are networked, "apt-get install telnetd" should work for you.
My /etc/apt/sources.list looks like this:
deb http://beast:80/rel0.9/debian sid main
deb http://beast:80/rel0.9/more-packages/debian sid main
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main non-free contrib
deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main non-free contrib
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US unstable/non-US main contrib non-free
deb-src http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US unstable/non-US main contrib non-free
'beast' is my local server which is making the CD contents available
over http. You want the last four lines, at least.
Then something like
apt-get update # updates apt cache with available pkg details
apt-get install telnetd # should "just work"
You can find telnetd_*_hppa.deb on a debian mirror under
/pub/mirrors/debian/pool/main/n/netkit-telnet if you just want to
grab a file, and then install with "dpkg -i telnetd....deb".
The pkgs that get installed initially are a little dated, and newer
ones are in more-packages on the CD.
BEWARE that when I installed e2fsprogs_1.20-1_hppa.deb from more-packages
the system wouldn't boot any more because e2fsck crashed. I recovered
by reinstalling e2fsprogs_1.19-4_hppa.deb from the debian tree on the
You don't say how you are trying to install gcc, libdb2, etc, but
your problem can probably be solved either by apt-get which will
sort out the dependancies for you, or with dpkg -i, specifying multiple
.deb files are arguments.
