Wheezy Repos Questions?

Postby cottfcfan on Thu Sep 22, 2011 9:42 am

Just installed the latest LMDE Gnome, & added the Debian Wheezy Repos using this:
http://debgen.simplylinux.ch/
Quite handy. Anway all went well after a 600mb update, and system seems quite stable.
My questions. Should I leave any of the Mint repos enabled as well?
Will using the Wheezy repos conflict with anything in mint?
And how stable will my system be using these repos instead of the official ones?
Thanks.

You can safely get rid of:
deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-proposed-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-proposed-updates main contrib non-free

All you actually need
Code: Select all
deb http://linux-mint.froonix.org/ debian main upstream import backport
           deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main non-free
           deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
           deb-src http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free

1- if you wish to keep running LMDE you should leave the mint repos on;
2- i can't find a reason to have updates and proposed-updates in the repos
