Thanks for the link. So, I now know that there's no reason to have this repository in my sources.list.

You have 3 lines for Lenny. Comment two of them out as well as the line for the cd. You should also have contrib non-free on the security line if you have it on the normal lenny/stable line.

deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib non-free

The same goes for volatile.

The craigevil sources.list virus seems to have found its way on my testing system as well.

Much obliged!

Debian -- The debian-volatile Project
Quote:
debian-volatile for end users
What is debian-volatile?

Some packages aim at fast moving targets, such as spam filtering and virus scanning, and even when using updated data patterns, they do not really work for the full time of a stable release. The main goal of volatile is allowing system administrators to update their systems in a nice, consistent way, without getting the drawbacks of using unstable, even without getting the drawbacks for the selected packages. So debian-volatile will only contain changes to stable programs that are necessary to keep them functional.
What is debian-volatile/sloppy?

For packages in the volatile section of the debian-volatile archive, we try to ensure that newer versions do not introduce functional changes or require the administrator to modify the configuration file. Software which cannot be upgraded painlessly will end up in the section volatile-sloppy. Please note that volatile-sloppy still requires the activation of the normal volatile archive.
Security support for debian-volatile

The official security team does not support debian-volatile, so that the debian-volatile team provides security updates regularly.
Releases of debian-volatile

debian-volatile has both a staging and a release area. The staging area is only used by the build daemons. There is no guarantee that packages in this area are usable for end users. Packages in the staging area might not have a safe upgrade path, either.

Packages are moved to the release area whenever a debian-volatile update announcement (VUA) is sent to the debian-volatile-announce mailing list. The upgrade path of packages in this area is guaranteed, as well as the upgrade to the next stable release (squeeze).
Archive

The official archive of debian-volatile is available on the main site volatile.debian.org, but a network of mirrors is active and available.

Please only use lenny/volatile with

deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main contrib non-free

If you want to use the sloppy archive, use the following APT sources:

deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile-sloppy main contrib non-free

The integration into the main archive is planned and hopefully available for Squeeze.

Hi all,
I've installed a Debian Etch 4.0r7 on a server and now I can't do apt-get update/upgrade because I read:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ign http://security.debian.org etch/updates/main Packages/DiffIndex
Ign http://www.debian-multimedia.org etch Release
Ign http://security.debian.org etch/updates/contrib Packages/DiffIndex
Ign http://security.debian.org etch/updates/non-free Packages/DiffIndex
....
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
My sources.list is:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
#
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r7 _Etch_ - Official i386 NETINST Binary-1 20090210-11:46]/ etch contrib main
#
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ etch main non-free deb contrib
#
deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib non-free
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Should I have to put in /etc/apt/sources.list these next 4 lines because lenny is the current developed debian version?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
deb http://debian.lcs.mit.edu/debian/ lenny contrib main non-free
deb-src http://debian.lcs.mit.edu/debian/ lenny contrib main non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ lenny/updates main contrib non-free
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is it correct or not? What happens to my 'old' etch programs already installed? Are they compatible?
Thank you in advance.

lenny-backports-sloppy:

http://backports.debian.org/news/len...loppy_created/

Quote:
The Backports Team is pleased to announce the availability of a new
suite on backports: lenny-backports-sloppy. Please read carefully
before considering using or uploading to it what this entails.


The Background
==============

You might want to ask: What's that? Let me explain it. During the etch
release discussions popped up on the backports list with two clashing
groups:

* One that expected to always be able to upgrade from sarge +
sarge-backports to etch without backports,
* others that wanted new versions of packages flowing in even after the
release and were happy to upgrade from sarge + sarge-backports to etch +
etch-backports.

The standing at that time was to accept packages that were in testing
after the release, which wasn't etch anymore but lenny.

The same discussion started again before the lenny release, and given that
we are facing the upcoming squeeze release we started internally to discuss
how to noise down these long and tedious discussions, because both groups
of people had valid opinions that shouldn't get ignored. So this is where
the idea for lenny-backports-sloppy comes from.

The Change
==========

lenny-backports-sloppy will please the group that is happy to upgrade from
lenny + lenny-backports to squeeze + squeeze-backports. lenny-backports is
meant only for packages from squeeze, even after the release. Technically
that means it will get locked down for uploads after the release of squeeze
and require manual approval (for e.g. point release update versions, or
security updates that happen during the squeeze release cycle), while
lenny-backports-sloppy will accept packages from wheezy. Uploading to
lenny-backport will have to get approved by the Debian Backports Team after
the squeeze release, just like uploads to lenny are currently approved by
the Release Team.

While lenny-backports-sloppy is created already and working we ask you to
NOT upload packages there without prior discussion with the Backports Team.
This is meant to ensure that the Uploader is aware about the expectations
that come along with that: The package should have a good chance to get
included in the next Debian release aka wheezy, and that the Uploader is
willing to look after the package in the upcoming squeeze-backports suite
after the release of squeeze to ensure upgradeability.

In case of questions, feel free to ask either directly on the
debian-backports@lists.debian.org mailinglist, or contact
team@backports.debian.org privately.

We are also pleased to annonce that the first upload to
lenny-backports-sloppy already happened. From now on you will be able
to install Postgresql 9.0 (which is not targeted at squeeze) from
lenny-backports-sloppy.
Quote:

How to use
==========

If you want to use lenny-backports-sloppy you will have to add both
lenny-backports and lenny-backports-sloppy to your sources.list. Backports
from lenny-backports-sloppy may depend on packages in lenny-backports.
