Note that this file was generated by apt-setup and I've removed the excessive line spaces.

I don't use all the repositories at all times so I've commented out a few.

Sorry for being a complete debian newbie here, I have a base system (can't believe that has the 2.4 kernel!!), I don't want to start installing unstable packages, but I do want options to update the kernel to something never than 2.6.8. Is there a specific or official source for installing new kernels with apt-get? How can I see which versions are in my current repository set?

JF1980 - run 'apt-get update' and 'apt-cache search kernel' or something similar to find out what kernel versions are available in your current repository.

Hi-
That xorg backport didn't have any dependency issues for me. I did a clean install yesterday and used it with no problems. One caveat though, it did remove several packages. But I took note of those packages and just reinstalled it with no problems. It works great. BTW, xfree86 was messing up my X display which is why I upgraded. Otherwise if it ain't broke why fix it?
BTW, if you want to use that OO.org2 backport you must have JAVA installed otherwise it will fail because of dependencies.

I'll throw mine into the mix as well, with comments -

#deb file:///cdrom/ sarge main

deb http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian/ stable main non-free contrib
# deb-src http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian/ stable main non-free contrib

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

# deb http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian/ testing main non-free contrib
# deb-src http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian/ testing main non-free contrib

(don't think I'll have much use for Testing now, since I've switched to Sarge to lose all the dependency woes that seem to exist in Testing/Unstable now)

deb ftp://ftp.las.ic.unicamp.br/pub/debian-marillat sarge main
# deb ftp://ftp.las.ic.unicamp.br/pub/debian-marillat testing main

deb file:/root debs/ (just my local repo for things I find around the web and want to try out)

deb http://www.backports.org/pending/ ./

deb http://xfce.corsac.net stable main #xfce4.2.2

deb http://apt.bxlug.be/sarge/ main/ # sylpheed 2.0.0

deb http://zap.org.au/debian/ zapgroup-sarge main

(this last one for linux-source-2.6.12. This kernel series is the only one which works well with my Kworld Vstream DVB-T card. 2.6.14 is supposed to have built-in support but it doesn't register the card properly and keeps spitting out messages to syslog. Under 2.6.12-10 the card works seamlessly).

Cheers!

Guys,

If I am using Debian AMD64 kernel, where can I get a source list for my system so I can update Gnome 2.10 > 2.12 and Firefox 1.0.7 > 1.5.0?

Right now my Debian system is a fresh install and I had a selection of 5 sources to choose from during my install and setting up APT-GET. I know how to manually edit /etc/apt/sources.list but have no idea where to find more updated sources/packages.

Can anyone give me a hand?

Have you tried apt-get.org? This is kind of an index of Debian repositories, a place where you can search for packages available in places other than the official Debian repositories. Dunno how good it is on amd64 stuff, though...

In the sources.list, what's the thing that comes after the URL but before the sections (i.e. main, contrib,..)?

Is that a directory name? (which in the case of the official Debian repos, happens also to be on of the names given to the distribution versions? (woody|sarge|etch|sid) )

The APT-HOWTO refers to it as a "distribution" What does that exactly mean when you're dealing with repo's that aren't official Debian?

From what I understand, when you create a .deb package, you supply a "section" name, and that's what corresponds to the "sections" listed at the end of each line in the sources.list file.

(Hmm... maybe when you create a repository, you have to give it a special "distribution" name?)

Yes. Just browse to the url and you will see it corresponds to a directory on the repository's server. But there's more...

It's to distinguish which packages are designed for which distribution, bearing in mind that they each have their own build environment ie. different tools are used to compile the packages in each distribution (eg. gcc 3.3.5 for Sarge, gcc 4.0.2 for Etch). So something compiled with Sarge build tools, and therefore designed to run on Sarge, goes into the Sarge section of the repo, and so on for Etch and Sid.

Of course, there's more to it than this, but that's a very basic outline (least how I understand it). If you want to get into the details I suggest checking out the Debian Maintainer's Guidelines (or whatever the official title is) at debian.org .
