Is this a safe sources list?

Postby spottyrover on Sun Jun 08, 2014 10:40 pm

Is this a safe sources list which will keep lmde up to date?
I have just installed lmde and found my sources.list file was empty. :shock:
But I could add programs like kdenlive and xfce. How? :shock: :shock:

After having problems with xbmc, I found extra repos which gave me a working xbmc :P the standard 13.0 does not work.
Then I started to wonder how I had added Xfce etc with an empty source.list file.

Will the hidden repos clash with what is the below?

#/etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/ wheezy contrib
deb http://apt.tvheadend.org/unstable/ wheezy main
# for Jessie and Sid:
####deb http://people.debian.org/~rbalint/ppa/xbmc-ffmpeg xbmc-ffmpeg-unstable/

You didn't really add all this stuff to LMDE, did you? :shock:

What a mess. :shock: I hope you didn't install any updates with this setup...

This should be removed:

and this should be left alone:

As you can see, official repo in Linux Mint are no more in/etc/apt/sources.list but in :
Code: Select all
   Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list
           deb http://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/linuxmint-packages/ debian main upstream import
           deb http://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/linuxmint-debian/latest/ testing main contrib non-free
           deb http://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/linuxmint-debian/latest/security/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
           deb http://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/linuxmint-debian/latest/multimedia/ testing main non-free
           deb http://extra.linuxmint.com/ debian main


You added true Debian repo... LMDE is more up to date versus Wheezy, so your Wheezy repo are useless. Your Testing repo will break Cinnamon if you use it...

No I have not upgraded yet. Making sure it's right first. i do not want to blame a distro because of my mistakes.
unticked vbox and tvheadend until I have time to check them out further.
No updates available? New install and no updates.
Did it update on install?

Now I have
