Debian Wheezy install: i2p depends on service-wrapper, service-wrapper depends on libc6

When trying to install on a Debian Wheezy after following the instructions on
I got the error: i2p depends on service-wrapper

Long version:

I've looked into this, the 'service-wrapper' package from the PPA is newer, however requires a version of 'libc6' that is not available by default in Debian Wheezy.

To resolve this, install service-wrapper _before_ adding the i2p package repository to the apt sources.

Could you verify this, and update the website to reflect this?

Sorry for the trouble. I updated the site a few hours before finding this ticket.

In short, use 'raring' as the distribution. That is, use

deb raring main 

This was tested in a pristine Debian Wheezy installation.

To clarify:

On a clean Wheezy installation, I simply added

deb raring main 

to apt's sources, added the key, refreshed the package list with apt-get update, then installed I2P with "apt-get install i2p".
