Unstable Sources List


Well I been using my Mini Mac for awhile and haven't used my PC tower system. Now I just hooked up the tower and decided to update Debian Sid.

I assume since the new Sarge has been released, parts of my sources list is not working. Here is the one's not working.

Err http://non-us.debian.org sid/non-US/main Packages
404 Not Found
Ign http://non-us.debian.org sid/non-US/main Release
Err http://non-us.debian.org sid/non-US/contrib Packages
404 Not Found
Ign http://non-us.debian.org sid/non-US/contrib Release
Err http://non-us.debian.org sid/non-US/main Sources
404 Not Found
Ign http://non-us.debian.org sid/non-US/main Release
Err http://non-us.debian.org sid/non-US/contrib Sources


Does anybody know how I can fix these?

Thnx.

There are no longer non-us repos.

Maybe post your /etc/apt/sources.list

Thnx for the reply.

cat /etc/apt/sources.list
# deb file:///cdrom/ sarge main

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib
# deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US/ sid/non-US main contrib
# deb-src http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US/ sid/non-US main contrib
# deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US testing/non-US main contrib non-free

deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ unstable main
deb ftp://ftp.tux.org/java/debian/ sarge non-free


That is all I have every had up to this point.

Any suggestions or ideas?

Thnx again.

right, you don't need the non-us anymore, try e.g.:

deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ unstable main
deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ unstable main

Ok, I got most of my sources list working. I just stop using the non-us lines. I tried apt-setup and got the same errors. I may try it again.

Now when I run apt-get upgrade, after apt-get update, I get this error message on udev.

ghostdawg80:/home/saptech# apt-get -f install

Any suggestions on fixing this?

Thnx.

If I reboot with the above error on udev, do you think I may have problems getting back into Debian SId?

Since these errors appeared, I'm a little hesitant to reboot.

What do you all think?

Thnx.

You "should" be just fine. Apt did not install udev, and usually fixes itself before exiting. Sid upgrades are pretty unstable right now though so you never know what it did. What other packages did it upgrade?

I haven't been using my Debian system for a least a couple of months, I bought a Mini Mac machine and been using that during this time.

So when I did hook up the tower system and decided to upgrade Sid, it upgraded alot of files but didn't upgrade alot also, since the New Sarge came out.

Thnx, again.

I'm still having problems with udev. I can't seem to remove it to try and reinstall it.

When I run the remove command this is what I get:

:~# apt-get remove --purge udev
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
hal: Depends: udev (>= 0.056-2) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).


Anymore ideas/suggestions?

Thnx.

Try "dpkg --force-help" it'll give a list of force options. Apt is only a frontend to dpkg so it doesn't matter you'll use dpkg to remove the package.

I was able to use the command, aptitude remove udev, and that did remove it. Then I renamed /etc/udev directory and was able to reinstall udev.

I'm assuming this fixed the udev issue.

It seems that aptitude did things that apt-get didn't/wouldn't. This is my first time using aptitude, seems like a pretty good program to use instead of apt-get.

Has anybody else used it before?

Thnx for all the help.
