Cool APT repositories (any good ones?)


Hi

I am using APT/Synaptic on my Fedora Core 3 box running the latest version of KDE. I am wanting to add some extra repositories but I'm not sure which ones are considered the best. Would it be possible for someone here to post a list of the really good ones?. I already have dag, newrpms, dries and the default ayo one. Does pbone have somthing I can add to synaptic?. Would someone be willing to post their apt list?

- Thank's!

I think you have more that enough, if you use too many you can cause problems. An example recently I added newrpms to my list and it wanted to upgrade everything from freshrpms (ayo) even though the versions were the same. This is because newrpms have a different way of labelling their rpms, so rpm thinks they are newer than the ones already installed.

You know, I had the same problem. Thank's for the heads up. What do you think about DAG though...is that one ok?.

I only use the official Fedora repositories + freshrpms and DAG, never had a problem with those.
