For homework, I suggest to point the OP in the right direction instead of posting the answer.

The "right place" was what I was missing. I unpacked the debian directory along with the orig sources instead of inside of it.

comment How do I compile mercurial 1.5.2 on debian?
Thanks, that works. My reason is that I have a patch which I need and I really don't want to pollute my system with unknown packages at this time, so no "sid" for me (whatever that might be - it's my first contact with debian).

comment Unhappy with performance of GBit Ethernet to Fiber converter
In short: yes. I need to connect more places and the space is very limited. In the volume where I can run a single CAT6, I can run 12 fibers.

And I could try with a different cable but I'm pretty sure the cable is good (it's fresh out of the box, no indication of strain and with the protective caps still installed).
