Unstable repositories


Anyone know a good mirror for the unstable and testing repositories? The ones I had in my source list do not seem to be up.

These are the ones I have been using:
# Unstable
#deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
#deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian-non-US/ unstable/non-US main contrib non-free
# Sources
#deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
#deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian-non-US/ unstable/non-US main contrib non-free
# Testing
#deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
#deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian-non-US/ testing/non-US main contrib non-free
# Sources
#deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
#deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian-non-US/ testing/non-US main contrib non-free

Thanks. IS there a way to search for mirrors?

APT HOWTO has a link to a page that lists the Debian worldwide mirror sites and it also introduces a tool that helps you to select the best mirror for your needs.

http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/ap...basico.en.html

Or you can use apt-setup to select the mirror and edit the resulting sources.list afterwards to point to the unstable repos.

Yeah I am an idiot. Used apt-setup. Duh. I installed using Kanotix and it used a mirror in Germany. I switched to the US mirror and all is well.
