disabling cd sources in apt/sources.list
I am installing a hp officejet pro 8500 all in one printer to knoppix 6.0.1. install hangs saying i need to disable cd sources in etc/apt/source.list. How do i do this?

Edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list with your favorite text editor and place a "#" symbol in front of all lines that start with cdrom.

ran into this so sorry for resurrecting an old thread
Will disabling the CD sources on the apt sources.list cause issues anywhere else?

(my printer wasn't showing up in libreoffice so i am installing the drivers and I don't want to "break" anything)

Haveing the cd sources listed means that apt will look in/for the cd for the software "usefull if no internet" It wont hurt not having it abled apt will get from online

ugh! I just realized; I can disable the cd sources, load the drivers, then go back and enable it back to the default! But thank you spiky0011, at least I know I shouldn't mess anything up in the process.
