At the end of the line noting the main Lenny repo., just add "nonfree contrib".

Do this for the deb-src and security repositories, too.

What he said.

In addition, if you want software such as codecs that are not "debian compatible", go to debian-multimedia.org and follow the instructions for adding that repository as well. It will be a new line in your sources.list.

I checked it and your're right. This repository doesn't work for squeeze. I think it's a remnant of my old lenny upgrade. (all lennys changed to squeeze and full upgrade with aptitude). I deleted it in my sources.list and edited the file above

You're welcome Hope it's useful to you. The list has been a lot longer in the past, but unfortunatly one repo after the other closes its doors or gets indexing problems.

Seriously?

Have you thought about adding your sources.list to the sticky on the Debian forum?

Yep, seriously. And about posting it on the Debian forums wouldn't be a good thing in my opinion, cause the Debian philosophy is in conflict with some repo's in my sources.list. Restricted freeware (binaries only).

I think you misunderstand.
I was talking about the sticky on the Debian forum here at LQ..
So it would be no different to posting it on this thread,as you have already.
Next time you go to the Debian forum here check it out.
Lots of people have posted theirs,including non-official repos too.
Hope this clarifies for you.

Hmmm... well... it clarifies to me that my sources.list can get much longer than it ever has been before (without getting the system unstable i hope) - I'll work on it to get a new version of the file and it will appear shortly

Here's my new version:

Maybe you're interested in the gpg import script I created:

*edit: BTW: I didn't manage to reach the original length and mine isn't the longest
