Question Debian (Sarge) repos to use w/ Synaptic?


Hi

I just downloaded and installed Debian Sarge the other day and I'm having a bit of trouble trying to figure out just what goes where in the "repositories" section of Synaptic as well as trying to find repositories to add. To make this as easy as possible, could someone please be kind enough to fill in the spaces below so I have all of the official Debian repositories available (Sid, Sarge, free, non-free, unstable, contrib, testing, etc)?...

URI:
Distribution:
Section(s):

Thank you so much!.

Well it's command line but as synaptic is just a frontend to apt I suppose it should work. As rooot: "apt-setup" and then choose what you want and it'll automatically write the sources.list file.

You know it's funny, I have been wondering how to get back to that repository screen ever since I did the original install and you just showed me how. Thank's a bunch!

You can always just edit the file at /etc/apt/sources.list with a text editor.

But the problem is the server addresses for me :P I don't feel like searching sites for the link if I can just do apt-setup and it looks everything up ok and writes it for me.
