/etc/apt/source list help


i am new to debian

i wanna install the nvidia-kernel source and other software and the non-us

Code:
#deb file:///cdrom/ sarge main

deb ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing main
deb-src ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing main

deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main

how i can change the mirror sites for non us
and it also not found some packages

Code:
E: Package sndconfig has no installation candidate
debian66:/home/salahuddin# apt-get install sndconfig
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package sndconfig is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package sndconfig has no installation candidate
debian66:/home/salahuddin#

Add the following to /etc/sources.list:
Code:
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US sarge/non-US main contrib non-free
deb-src http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US sarge/non-US main contrib non-free
Then run 'apt-get update'

sndconfig is no longer available in sarge or sid. sndconfig dosen't work with the 2.6 kernel and has been replaced by the discover package.

You shouldn't need that line at all. Debian dosen't offer security updates for testing or unstable.

Some nvidia packages are back in Sarge, but not all of them, http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages#search_packages

Get them from unstable if needed.
