i need help regarding repositories

Postby ameyjah on Thu Jun 19, 2008 10:27 pm

I have screwed up my repositories. Now I am not able to install anything via apt-get. Can you tell me how to repair my repos database.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Here is a starting mint line for Daryna:

deb http://www.linuxmint.com/repository daryna main upstream import

For Elyssa, you can replace daryna with elyssa.

Also there will be some ubuntu lines as well. Probably based on this you may wish to correct your list & try.
