I've tried and tried, but I just can't seem to find gnomad2 ( ) in the Ubuntu repositories. I've already enabled all the "categories" in Software Sources (except Source Code), and I've "reloaded" (apt-get update) the repositories several times already. I feel like I'm doing something really stupid though...

This was removed from Debian (and subsequently Ubuntu) for the following reasons:

ROM; buggy, obsolete, abandoned upstream

A glance at the project's home page doesn't really show any activity since 2008. Perhaps it might be useful to ask a question on how to get your specific hardware to work, maybe some other tool has the support you need.

Thanks. One thing though... What does "ROM" stand for? It seems like "Reason of Removal"... – Hello71 Feb 10 '11 at 3:28
No clue what that means, I'll ask around and update my question. – Jorge Castro Feb 10 '11 at 3:30
