ianw1974 Posted February 16, 2007 Report Share Posted February 16, 2007 I just borked a Debian install, when attempting to use the "unstable" repos. So, perhaps I got something wrong there :) Now, I've reinstalled with Debian, currently using stable repos. So, any ideas how I should be configuring my repos so I don't break it again. I want to have the latest packages, so believe that I either have to use testing/unstable for this. Here is my current /etc/apt/sources.list file: elan:/home/ian# cat /etc/apt/sources.list #deb file:///cdrom/ sarge main deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 r0a _Sarge_ - Official i386 Binary-2 (20050607)]/ unstable contrib main deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 r0a _Sarge_ - Official i386 Binary-1 (20050607)]/ unstable contrib main deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib deb http://ftp.pl.debian.org/debian/ stable main contrib non-free Some questions. 1. Is it safe to disable the DVD media now, and just go directly from the internet? Since, it never really used these during installation anyhow, and downloaded a load of packages from the internet instead of using DVD 1 and 2. 2. If I add the testing and/or unstable repos, so I leave the stable ones in place, or do I remove these completely (or just # them out)? Any ideas, I don't really fancy borking it again.
