how to view which packages are from which repo?


Hi,

I am currently tracking stable distribution along with some packages from Testing and Unstable. Is there any way by which I can see the entire list of packages along with the information of 'the repo' from which they are i.e. stable/testing/unstable?

Thanks

An utility called apt-show-versions can compare the versions of your installed packages to the package versions available from different repos listed in /etc/apt/sources.list.

Thanks Dead Parrot once again. Your suggestions/answers are always correct. Yes apt-show-versions solves my problem.

You are simply the best
