I installed Debian etch from a disc and it did not configure my apt-get sources to work properly. Example: I type apt-get install "example here" and it always comes back saying could not find package. It does this for every search. I tried to change the script under vi /etc/apt/sources.list but I dont think I have the scripting correct. Does anyone have any info on this? Thank you in advance.
The only source you currently have is the install CD, which only has a limited amount of packages. You will need to add some new internet sources. If you can tell me where you are located geographically (I don't need an address, just a rough idea), I can suggest some sources.
