Upgrading to "wheezy"

#1 Post by fred108 »

Hi , I'm in the process of upgrading to the testing repo's from debian squeeze stable. I was just wondering if I have my /etc/apt/sources.list correctly?

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.1 _Squeeze_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20110319-14:31]/ squeeze contrib main

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.1 _Squeeze_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20110319-14:31]/ squeeze contrib main

deb http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free

# squeeze-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main contrib non-free

deb http://liquorix.net/debian sid main

Cheers and thanks

First, I'd block the non-free. You don't need regular doses from non-free. I'd also block liquorix unless you want very frequent updates. (I use a liquorix kernel too :D ) You can knock off those cdrom lines; they are probably out of date as we write. Here's what I use regularly:

Code: Select all

#Testing
deb ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib #non-free
deb-src ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib 

#Security
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib

It seems right. Here's mine:

Code: Select all

cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://ftp.se.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.acc.umu.se/mirror/debian-multimedia testing main non-free
