Synaptic et command line (solved, Thanks)

Postby jppattison » 2018-02-07 18:11

I've been trying to load some apps via Synaptic as well as the same apps via the command line (apt, apt-get), but it seems that I need a CD to be able to get the package - but it won't accept the Debian CD1 that I used for the install. I'm online, and I have just installed, so the repos should be up to date. Why wouldn't the packages be stored at one of the repos? After all, I thought that's what they were for.

If I download the DVD, will that include the packages? I.E. 4GB v. 647M

Just comment out the second entry like this:

Code: Select all
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 9.3.0 _Stretch_ - Official amd64 xfce-CD Binary-1 2$


then run apt-get update

The only time I would want to install a package from DVD is when there is no Internet at all.
