sources.list suggestion

Postby Enzo386 » 2005-08-28 18:28

Hi,

I just installed a fresh copy of Debian Sarge using the netinstall CD, so i have the latest "stable" packages. I want to upgrade to Sid/Unstable to use KDE 3.4, so i'm wondering what you recommend i have in my sources.list file to make the upgrade a success, or, just share your sources.list file :)

In the sources.list file, change all words that say stable to unstable.

Also comment out the security.debian.org line because unstable doesn't have such repository.

Now is not a good time to upgrade to sid--kde 3.4 is not yet in sid, and chances are you will really mess up your installation if you upgrade now. Best to wait a few weeks until the problems have been sorted out.

Walks that polished hall.

Joy, too, is fled.
