Debian Etch Repositories


Where can I find the urls to add to here? Like for one when I search 'Deluge' in Synaptic it is not listed. What do you recommend? Thanks.

It's in etch backports.

Here are instructions for adding backports.

Thanks for the quick response!

I think I did the backporting right ,but it's showing a really old version of Deluge in Synaptics. How do I get the last version to show up?

You have to do an apt-get update after changing your sources list. Can you post your sources list?

apt-cache policy Deluge should tell what apt-get is thinking it wants to do, without actually doing anything.

Also, there is a long list here at LQ. Go to Forums->Distributions->Debian->thread: Post Your sources.list

It is a sticky, so it should be easy to find.

Someone in the Ubuntu forum posted this. But almost everything I add gives me errors so I'm guessing most of it's outdated.

Also is 'reload' in Synaptic the same this as 'apt-get update'?

Synaptic is a graphical frontend to apt, so yes, it is.

Unless you wanted to run Sid instead of Etch, adding those repos actually bought you big problems. Typical newbie foolishness, though. By the time you understand how those repos work, you'll be ready to reinstall anyway.

Make sure you're backing up any critical data.
