Need complete repository list


Hey guys, I need some quick (knock on wood) help. I've been going by the unofficial ubuntu 5.04 starter guide with my install. My problem (I believe) is with the file /etc/apt/sources.list . I have edited my file like the sample they give. When I try to apt-get many files cannot be found and I recieve errors "could not stat some package source". Would someone please post their sources.list file that has been confirmed to work and is practicall so I can copy and paste it? Thanks.

This one is from Breezy, but if you haven't found anyone else, try it. If I'm not a 100 percent loose, it might work.

as long as they change the word breezy to hoary it should work on hoary or other way around. also im not real sure what country se is but if you in usa good thing to do would be to change the letters se to us or if in the uk change it to uk. mainly that should help the download speeds to be closer to your country. good luck also after putting in new sources dont forget to sudo apt-get update

right: on the repositories, IGNORE the backports, and change 'hoary' to 'breezy'. It's one of the few items on the guide thats out of date. Breezy is not using backports at the moment, so you should not have them in your /etc/apt/sources.list. Just add the universe and multiverse, changing the words hoary for breezy.

Wow...changed hoary to breezy and what a difference. I was affraid to do so because breezy is only a beta version. I take it I won't mess anything up as long as I don't do a dist-upgrade yet? w00t w00t
