DutchGlory get rid of all of that crap.

You only need one Debian mirror, and if you are running Stable/Squeeze you should NOT have anything but stable/squeeze in your sources.list sure as hell shouldn't have lines for sid or experimental.

Do NOT mix Debian releases unless you are trying to break your install.

New domain name deb-multimedia.org

Heads up.

If using debian-multimedia.org,
the repository had been changed deb-multimedia.org (together with deb-multimedia-keyring)

Details can be found at http://debian-multimedia.org which will redirect you to http://www.deb-multimedia.org/

Thanks for the heads up!

Are people really confused between official Debian packages and d-m.o packages? I know in Synaptic official packages have the Debian logo to show they are official. Also, most people should already be aware of the "risk" of using 3rd party repositories. I don't think the name change was necessary.

The problem was mostly people filing bug reports on packages from dmo, on the Debian BTS.

I have yet to run into any problems using Christian's repo. The majority of my multimedia packages are from dmo including mplayer, vlc, ffmpeg, flashplayer-mozilla and the depends.

I must admit that at first I thought the Debian-Multimedia repositories were official but separate and hosted somewhere else for DMCA type reasons. So I can well understand that the Debian developers wanted to make sure that nobody mistakes the multimedia repositories for official ones.
Oh, and thanks to michalng for the heads-up.

....

I agree with craigevil,

Christian's repo have been very useful to me and I believed many others.

http.debian.net - new redirector

Quote:
About http.debian.net

Brought to you by Raphael Geissert, it aims to solve the problem of choosing a Debian mirror, among other issues. The redirector uses the geo and network location of the user and the mirrors, the architecture of the requested files, IP address family, the availability and freshness of the mirrors, and a few other things. It is constantly improved.
The result: it selects the best mirror that can serve the file. Give the demonstration a try!
If you are familiar with cdn.debian.net you should think of http.debian.net as a superior replacement.

Example of adjusting sources.list to use http.debian.net

Thanks for the informative post jens. I provide my own sources.list as a worked example.
See if I've got it right.

Before using http.debian.net

Code:
deb http://ftp.utexas.edu/debian/ squeeze main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.utexas.edu/debian/ squeeze main non-free contrib

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

# squeeze-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://ftp.utexas.edu/debian/ squeeze-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.utexas.edu/debian/ squeeze-updates main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
Adjusted to use http.debian.net

Code:
deb http://http.debian.net/debian squeeze main non-free contrib
deb-src http://http.debian.net/debian/ squeeze main non-free contrib

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

# squeeze-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ squeeze-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://http.debian.net/debian/ squeeze-updates main contrib non-free
Changes:
Updated binary repos.
Updated "updates" repos.
No change to security repos.
Deleted what appears to be an unneeded second repository deb ftp.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free.

What happens if you use multiple repositories, BTW? Can you get version conflicts? Does the last depository
override the earlier ones?

If you have multiple repositories, such as Debian testing and Debian unstable, the unstable packages will most likely be newer and override the testing packages, assuming you don't have any APT pinning configured. Same thing if you have a 3rd party repository with the same package as the official repo, the newer version will be shown.

If you have duplicate entries of the same repository, same or different mirrors, but both the same release (ie. both unstable), then you may get an error like this:
Code:
W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://debian.lcs.mit.edu/debian/ unstable/main amd64 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/debian.lcs.mit.edu_debian_dists_unstable_main_binary-amd64_Packages)
Everything should work just fine though.
