Help with apt-get source lists


Recommended Posts

Well, I'm a noob. I went to apt-get.com and added some source lists to my source.list file. How many is normal to have? I had about 20, but after receiving some errors from apt-get update I removed the ones causing problems. So I have about 15 now. I am wondering if anyone has any good tips for making a source list file.

To answer my own question, I realized there was an "apt-setup" program. This helps to run it =P

 

Normally it would be ran during the install, but my internet wasnt working until after I installed the broadcom drivers so I couldnt set apt-get up until now.

good to know for those that don't ... this also works for other distros. its a generic part of apt not just deb...

shadowcat@sofia:~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list  
#deb http://ftp.se.debian.org/debian/ sarge main    
deb ftp://ftp.se.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free  
deb-src ftp://ftp.se.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free    
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free  
shadowcat@sofia:~$  

 

That is what I use. First line is a comment, since Sarge isn't stable yet.
