sources.list for Etch [Solved]

Postby nayoo » 2006-05-20 04:15

Dear All,

May I know your choice of respositories or any default respositories to be put into the sources.list file for Etch?

My respositories are :
Code: Select all
# Testing
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib
deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ etch main
deb http://ftp.debian-unofficial.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free restricted


Currently, I'm having problem with "apt-get update" for "deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ etch main". The Error message is:
Code: Select all
W: Couldn't stat source package list ftp://ftp.nerim.net etch/main Packages (/va r/lib/apt/lists/ftp.nerim.net_debian-marillat_dists_etch_main_binary-i386_Packag es) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used  instead.
I commented out that problematic respository and did "apt-get update" again. This time around it worked. :roll:
So far, I have no idea why this happens. It would be great if someone of you could share your sources.list for Etch or could explain the cause of this problem?

Thank you,
N.O

This part is no problem. I have tested this part.

This one is the problem. I could not connect to the server. "apt-get update" halted.
cataract wrote:# amule
# deb http://amule-debian.dyndns.org/ debian/

This part has no problem.

May I know
  1. Why I cannot connect to "debian-marillat" server? I used to be able to connect it before.
  2. What is amute?

Marillat's repo is quite flaky a lot of the time.

IIRC amule is some sort of P2P client.

Christian Marillat's repo has been moved to a new address. You should change your Marillat sources.list entry to this:

deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org etch main
