[SOLVED] Is this proper repository list?

Postby pawRoot » 2018-01-10 06:57

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stable main contrib non-free

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stable-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stable-updates main contrib non-free

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian-security stable/updates main
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian-security stable/updates main


Or should i add contrib and non-free to the rest too?

Yes, if you want security updates for contrib & non-free packages.

Well I'd recommend it, but I'm nobody important. :P
There are packages in there and the changelogs say they're security updates, but whether you want them or not is up to you.

Also, you don't need the deb-src lines unless you are using the source packages (you would know if you are).
Otherwise, all they do is slow down your updates and put unnecessary extra load on the repo servers.

OK, but you can still comment them out until you need them again.
