Repositories Shafted.

Postby CYBERTYBO on Mon Feb 16, 2009 2:34 am

I am not a complete newb, but I have painted myself into a corner. Two weeks after I installed Mint64 I have somehow messed up my repositories. (Probably trying to get rid of some unwanted/half-installed packages) I see the repositories in Synaptic, but they don't update and I can't install any software or get any updates from Synaptic or MintInstall. My question is what can I do to completely wipe the repositories and which ones to put back to get to a Mint64 default state. I know I can just re-install but I don't want to.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

i am posting my repositories list, so you can copy them into your etc/apt/sources.list file. remember to open it as root.

some of the repos required downloading additional keys - you can either disable them or search for keys, there are instructions here on he forum.
