Cheers!!

It looks fine. Why would you expect updates so frequently? It's Debian Stable, it doesn't change much.

"lenny" is the stable release, so it won't get many updates, only when there's some potentially serious security problem. That sources.list looks OK.

Beaten by a faster typer again.

Well, I am asking because with Debian Squeeze that I had before I had updates everyday, that is why it was odd to me. About Xfce4 there is any repository? Anything else I should add?


Cheers for replying me!!

Debian Squeeze is the testing branch, so it changed much more rapidly.

XFCE4 should be in the normal repos.

Unofficial Debian Stable xfce4.6 backports http://www.debian-desktop.org/doku.php/start
# XFCE 4.6.0 # i386,amd64
# deb http://www.debian-desktop.org/pub/linux/debian/xfce46 lenny xfce460
# deb-src http://www.debian-desktop.org/pub/linux/debian/xfce46 lenny xfce460

Shames repo for compiz hasn't been maintained for over a yr, might be a good idea to remove it from your sources.list

ok guys, thank you very much for your help, I think that my sources.list is all right after all. Just one comment I take out shames from compiz and I add the Xfce repositories that craigevil just point me out, anything else? I keep the rest?


Cheers!

Could add the tovid repository if you want a program for converting avi, flv, or wmv into mpg files for creating dvds.
Code:
# tovid
deb http://tovid.sourceforge.net/download/debian stable contrib
deb-src http://tovid.sourceforge.net/download/debian stable contrib
If you have an old copy of Quake2 lying around, then the following repository will give you the game engine for it (but not the game itself -- you need an actually copy of the Quake2 game for this to work):
Code:
# Quake2
deb ftp://www.markus-raab.org/apps ./
Might be good to have backports to get OpenOffice.org 3.1:
Code:
# backports
deb http://www.backports.org/debian lenny-backports main contrib non-free
If you have a Samsung laser printer, the following repo is useful:
Code:
# Samsung Unified Linux Driver
deb http://www-personal.umich.edu/~tjwatt/suldr/ debian extra
If you have children, and you want the latest gcompris game for them:
Code:
# gcompris repository
deb http://thomas.pub.enix.org/debian/ stable main
I'm not sure what "Lenny and a Half" is, but if you want this repository to work, you should remove the hash mark (#) that precedes the repo, and then update/reload your sources.

Just 2 more questions guys:

1) What is the repository Lenny and half for?

2) The backports repository is it good to have it enable, even after installing openoffice 3, is it any more uses for it? Is it good to get updates from it?


Cheers + Thanks!!

1) http://wiki.debian.org/LennyAndAHalf You already have it in the first part.

2) http://www.backports.org/dokuwiki/doku.php

Backports are recompiled packages from testing (mostly) and unstable (in a few cases only, e.g. security updates), so they will run without new libraries (wherever it is possible) on a stable Debian distribution. I recommend you to pick out single backports which fits your needs, and not to use all backports available here.

Be careful with the backports repo. Especially if you want Openoffice.org. I have been a big fan of Debian Lenny and plan to stay with it for some time. But I also have a need for some newer software. Specifically Openoffice. I tried to use the backports repo, and OO.o works fine. But the dependencies it pulls in overwrites some of the libs needed by GNUCASH. If you load OO.o from backports and use gnucash, it will segfault when you try to open an account. Instead it's ok to use the OO.o downloaded from the OO.o website.
