debian sid sources.list

Is this a correct sources.list for a debian upgrade from lenny to sid?


Code: Select all

as far i know there are no security updates and volatile updates for testing and unstable
(besides the ones added by the developers of the software).
so mine looks like this (in virtualbox :-) ):

deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ sid main
deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ sid main
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ experimental main
deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ experimental main

but i don`t know how to handle:
deb http://www.multimedia-debian.org/debian " sid ?" main

btw: why do you have got different mirror locations, uk and de?
greetings

get rid of volatile and security. All updates (including those) start in sid, so they're simply not needed. sid is volatile enough on it's own and security takes elements from sid packages (either specific patches or the entire package) to generate security updates for stable.

You can use apt-spy to get the fastest servers in your area. Just do:

How to install apt-spy

Code:

apt-get update
apt-get install apt-spy
apt-spy update
apt-spy -d unstable -s GB

Where "unstable" above is the version of Debian you want. You can also use "testing" or "stable". "GB" is the two letter country code. In my case, I use "US". That will search all servers in that country and check their speed. Afterwards, apt-spy will create a new sources.list file using the fastest server it finds.

Rather than restricting it to one country, you can also serch by geographical area:
Code:

apt-spy -d unstable -a Europe

So that it will search all servers in Europe.

It takes a long time to benchmark all the servers, but it does find the fastest one. In my case, it sped up my average download speed by 3 times by switching servers. You can get more information from "man apt-spy" or "apt-spy --help". Good Luck!

Doing a little digging here... curious... for unstable you have both http://http.us.debian.org/ and http://mirrors.kernel.org/. Why do you need both? If they're mirrors won't they all contain the same packages? If not, how does apt-get know to go to one over the other when the unstable main contrib non-free specifiers are all the same?

BTW... thanks for the apt-spy tip. My goodness that makes a difference!
