Can I keep using Ubuntu 9.04 if it's outdated?
Unable to install software on my ubuntu 9.10

This server I'm running is still on Karmic - I'm painfully aware that it has reached its end of life. However, due to a RAID driver we're using it's a pretty big hassle to upgrade, something that I haven't yet had time to look into.

I'm trying to run a Ventrilo server, and I'm stuck because I can't install ia32-libs:

I'm not too familiar with what happens to a system when it's reached end of life, but I can see the security repos are gone. Is there a way around this?

Any help would be much appreciated!

as you've noticed Karmic Koala has reached its end. It's no longer on that server. Maybe you can find single packages as in https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/karmic/i386/libc6/2.10.1-0ubuntu19. By now I don't know if a 'old' repository exists.

Hope it helps
