For major programs on Ubuntu, I can download them using
sudo apt-get install <package-name>
but sometimes, I need higher versions than the apt source, and PPA's download speed is too slow for me.
So I have to download .deb packages directly.
For example, I want to install the latest version of syslinux, where to download the .deb package?
Now I know the answer is http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/s/syslinux/ , but how can I get this address if I don't know? Similarly, how to find latest .deb packages for gftp, wine etc. ?
