Other sources for packages


There are some programs that I want for Debian but aren't available with the default sources:
x11vnc, snes9x, cinelerra and more.

I know one option is to build from source. Are there any other trust worthy sources I can add to the apt list?

Cinelerra -- http://cvs.cinelerra.org/getting_cinelerra.php#apt-x86

x11vnc -- debian repositories

snes9x -- debian repositories -- change your repositories and add "contrib" and "non-free" to "main"

For multimedia stuff, http://www.debian-multimedia.org/ is the place to go.

Any one you want in the top light purple box. If you look at the names, you can sometimes get an idea of which is closest to you. Like xxx.xxxx.de is Germany, I think.

They really need location heading in there.
Anyway, snes9x cannot be found.

apt-get update and then:

I'm confused. What am I supposed to do?
I tried to add those sources to my sources list but I get errors.

I understood from that, that you wanted something else than snes9x-x. Like pljvaldez said, just install it, you have the repository already in your sources.list.

Yes, I was saying that snes9x-x is ALL I could find but I wanted snes9express too. It isn't in my sources though.

Should I just use a 32 bit source? Can you provide one for me if you're running a 32 bit system?

snes9express is in the unstable repositories for AMD64. You could try apt-pinning it.

This does not make any sense, it's right here:
http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/contrib/s/

But I get:
apt-cache search snes9
snes9x-x

and that's it!
My sources file is posted above. Can anyone tell why this isn't working?

I'm stumped. Maybe try commenting out the CD repository and then aptitude update. Maybe it's only looking on the CD for some reason...
