UK stable, testing and unstable apt repositories

Postby bexley » 2006-06-07 09:05

Hi, 1st post so sorry if i got anything wrong

been using sarge for a while now, then my stupid employers outsourced our IT department to IBM so of course i'm gettign no support from them as i dont use windows.

anyway, i need to install the MS exchange patch for evolution which is only available for debian as unstable.

how do i add the unstable repositories for FTP in the UK. my apt sources.list looks liek this currently, the commented out lines dont work for some reason.

is there somwhere i can find a list?, why is it so hard to find this infdormation?
or am i just being a gimp?

#deb file:///cdrom/ sarge main

deb ftp://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stable main
deb-src ftp://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stable main

deb ftp://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian testing main
#deb ftp://ftp.uk.debian.org/debiam unstable main contrib non-free
#http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main

#deb http://www.download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/debian sarge main
#deb-src http://www.download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/debian sarge main

Edit the sources.list file and change all the 'stable' to 'testing' then do a apt-get update followed by an apt-get dist-upgrade. This may take a while.
