sources.list, debian


What do you include in your sources.list?
Will you post yours?


I'm kinda new to using debian and dselect. I think my sources.list file, which only has the default us.debain.org site, needs some upgrading.

Any recommendations? And why do you recommend them?

Nevermind.

I just discovered apt-get.org.

I guess people just keep the us debian site in sources.list and then add the source they need from apt-get.org when they need it.

Debian.org sure makes no reference to stuff not in their official packages.

Thanks also, Strike.

I saw a post over about sources.list for Connectiva and felt that maybe Debian should have one too.

Yeah, take caution, these are all unstable/experimental, blah blah blah, use at your own risk. Also, a lot of the commented ones may or may not be down. The uncommented ones should be up as of yesterday.

Run "man source.list".

The man page should explain how to add CD files.

I think striker had a line for his locally stored .deb files. Adding CD files should just be a matter of mounting your CD and adding a line for that location.

Quote:
From Striker's list:

Re: adding a cdrom to sources list

Quote:

How does this appear in the sources list?

Code:
 apt-cdrom
*note if you want more than one cd to be added to the sources.list,
once its scanned the first one it will ask if you have another cdrom,
choose yes and put cd 2 or three or whatever in the drive and hit enter.

Hope this helped .

Regards
