Firefox 1.5 is not in Etch yet. What you have to do is add the unstable sources(sid), do an
Code:
apt-get update
then
Code:
apt-get -t unstable firefox
then comment the unstable sources out, and then rerun apt-get update

Hey list,

I'm a newbie in Linux. I did KNOPPIX 4.0.2 HD installation succesfully. The problem is that I could not get apt works properly. Does any one there ever get this work? Is that possible anyone could share the sources.list?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Rocky

Also, you could be more specific as to what the problem is. But I think we also encourage people to start new threads for this kind of thing, so as not to clutter up the stickies.

Don't get me wrong, welcome to linux.

Where do I find the "unstable" source list for i386 machines?

Also what do you guys suggest I edit my source list to?

it'll be the same as what you've currently got, except it'll have 'unstable' instead of 'testing' or 'etch'. Most of the lists given in this thread will have all the packages you'll ever need.

I'm trying to set up LAN file and printer sharing system. It seem Samba
is a good package for my purpose. But I could not get it using apt-get. Below is my sources.list, Does anybody know which address should I use to get Samba?

Take a look at the very first post or the link in my signature.
My sources.list covers pretty much anything you would ever need that you can install via APT.

The security archive for Debian testing has been moved from secure-testing.debian.net to security.debian.org.
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel.../msg00006.html

Users of Debian testing should change the security repository lines in /etc/apt/sources.list to these:

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

Wow, I'm really glad I checked this thread. I was not aware that the debian-marillat repository had changed. I changed it, and got an update of w32codecs (and yes, I was thrilled). Anyway, I run Debian Sarge, but I have some packages from unstable and/or testing to satisfy dependencies for a couple of newer programs I installed. To be able to upgrade both the stable programs, and the unstable/testing programs, I have a preferences file that allows for Sarge to be maintained even with unstable and testing repositories activited in the sources.list:

The sources.list:

Code:
# cdroms, in case the internet goes down
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 r1 _Sarge_ - Official i386 Binary-2 (20051220)]/ unstable main 
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 r1 _Sarge_ - Official i386 Binary-1 (20051220)]/ unstable contrib main 

# Good ol Sarge 
deb http://security.debian.org stable/updates main contrib 
deb ftp://gulus.usherbrooke.ca/debian/ sarge main contrib non-free
deb-src ftp://gulus.usherbrooke.ca/debian/ sarge main contrib non-free  

# Thank you Christian for w32codecs and stuff  
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org sarge main

# for freemind
deb http://eric.lavar.de/comp/linux/debian/ experimental/ 
deb-src http://eric.lavar.de/comp/linux/debian/ experimental/ 

# I had these here for some reason that I cannot now recall
deb http://repos.knio.it/ stable main contrib non-free  
deb-src http://repos.knio.it/ stable main contrib non-free  

# for the p2p program amule
deb http://amule-debian.dyndns.org/ debian/ 

# for some of the required dependencies of freemind 0.8 and stuff
deb ftp://gulus.usherbrooke.ca/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free  
deb ftp://mirror.direct.ca/pub/linux/debian/ testing main contrib non-free  

# deb ftp://mirror.direct.ca/pub/linux/debian/ experimental main contrib non-free
The preferences file:

Code:
Package: *
Pin: release o=Debian,a=stable
Pin-Priority: 900

Package: *
Pin: release o=Debian,a=testing
Pin-Priority: 501

Package: *
