Question

I'm still wondering about the use of this thread.
How many pages?
I do hope this thread is monitored by a moderator. It would be so easy for someone to put a source.list line pointing to an exploit or virus (I'm not accusing anyone as I didn't read any of the post because I don't see the need really)

There are the official mirrors, the list can be found on debian.org.
There is backports.org for people running stable who want relatively small package from testing/unstable.
There is apt-get.org for searching unofficial but checked repositories containing stuffs not included in official ones.
There is the debian reference manual to understand the concept of Stable/Testing/Unstable, /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/preferences . Without this understanding, a bad line (even an official one) in sources.list can be deadly.
There is google for finding really unofficial, untrusted repositories.

Humm matlab is commercial I think..
There is this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FreeMat
Also octave is a replacement.

That is indeed a frightening thought. I have found all of the posters here to be good people. You do raise an important security consideration, nx5000.

Easy, just point your sources.list to lenny.
Code:
deb http://ftp.debian.org/ lenny main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/ lenny main contrib non-free

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

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

deb http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/os/Linux/distributions/debian-multimedia testing main
deb-src http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/os/Linux/distributions/debian-multimedia testing main
Since lenny still shares some packages with etch, I found that putting etch's security repo gave me some updates.

Question anyone know if...

is debian unofficial dead? is it still in anyone's repositories? i started
using debian last summer when etch was still testing and i still follow
testing at the moment. i went through http://ftp.debian-unofficial.org/
and all of the directories havent been modified in over a year! i feel
somewhat worried that it could possibly conflict with my packages and such.

any thoughts on this?
