Problem with sources.list for amd64
Hey all, I have worked with Debian some and have a couple 2.6 servers up. Couple things I am trying to accomplish but on my amd3500... any assist would be great.
Used aptitude to upgrade to 2.8.18-4-amd64 kernel, booting to and using it fine. Attempted to use following lines in sources.list and getting many successes but some "server said 'Failed to open file. '" errors. Also getting odd warnings "Couldn't stat source package list <URL cut out by site> sarge/contrib Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.us.debian.org_debian-amd64_debian_dists_sarge_contrib_binary-1386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory). Well no duh, I don't want 'i386 packages, where is aptitude getting that instead of amd64?
<URL had to be scrambled to post>
deb http : // security.debian .org sarge/updates main contrib non-free
deb http : // ftp.us.debian .org/debian-amd64/debian sarge main contrib
Final question for now. Do I want multiple souces.lists lines, to make sure I cover everything or should 1 mirror be enough? I know that I won't be running all 64 bit apps unless I can find them or build them all with 64 bit flags. Thanks in advance for any assist, John
