problems with the repositories added in etch


Hi, recently I decide to add on line repositories because I don't want to use my DEbian Etch DVD repositories anymore, so, my sources.list looks like:

***begin sources.list******
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux testing _Etch_ - Official Snapshot i386 Binary-1 $
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux testing _Etch_ - Official Snapshot i386 Binary-1 $

deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian etch main
deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian etch main
deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ etch contrib
deb http://wwww.debian-multimedia.org/ etch main
deb-src http://www.debian-multimedia.org etch main
***end sources.list********

ok, after that I obtained the next error message when I go to use
synaptic:

****begin error message*********
W: No se puede leer la lista de paquetes fuente http://mirrors.kernel.org etch/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/mirrors.kernel.org_debian_dists_etch_main_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No existe el fichero o el directorio)
W: No se puede leer la lista de paquetes fuente http://wwww.debian-multimedia.org etch/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/wwww.debian-multimedia.org_dists_etch_main_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No existe el fichero o el directorio)

*****end error message*************

"No existe el fichero o el directorio" MEANS:
No such as file or directory

What is my problem?
I'm sure that i have internet connection, actually, all morning the connection works ok, and I don't think that the connection is the problem. so, in those repos aren't there options for etch?

I'll be waiting for your help

thanks
Herbert

One of your Multimedia lines has too many Ws in it. And you need to read the top two lines on the Multimedia homepage. Try changing the word "etch" to "stable"

Thanks XavierP, actually my sources.list is looks like:
#
#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux testing _Etch_ - Official Snapshot i386 Binary-1 ($
#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux testing _Etch_ - Official Snapshot i386 Binary-1 ($
# Line commented out by installer because it failed to verify:
# deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian etch main
# deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian etch main
# deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ etch contrib
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org/ stable main
deb-src http://www.debian-multimedia.org stable main


and the actually error message is:
W: No se puede leer la lista de paquetes fuente http://www.debian-multimedia.org stable/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/www.debian-multimedia.org_dists_stable_main_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No existe el fichero o el directorio)

what do you think about this?

what do you think about this?
Try and see if lines like these work.

Code:
deb http://ftp2.de.debian.org.org/debian/ etch main contrib
deb-src http://ftp2.de.debian.org.org/debian/ etch main contrib
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org etch main
deb-src http://www.debian-multimedia.org sid main

#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux testing _Etch_ - Official Snapshot i386 Binary-1 ($

Sorry I have a typo from editing your lines remove the extra .org in the etch lines.

deb http://ftp2.de.debian.org/debian/ etch main contrib
deb-src http://ftp2.de.debian.org/debian/ etch main contrib
