I've shortened my last post in order to make it simpler. I cut out the question about the correct updating sequence and saved it for later. Thanks for being so quick to share your experiences. I'll keep that in mind.
My sources are the same and these work fine. I've commented out the ones that I tried and don't work.
- Code: Select all
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main non-free
I*'m no geek, but I believe
that you will get an answer from someone that indicates that the linuxmint repo that shows 'latest testing' is just a naming convention that has to be used or something. The last two repos, if you went thru the MUD
would be automatically changed to 'linuxmint latest' with update 3, I think.
Also, I think
that you can change the 'latest' to 'incoming' and you will get updates that are more in line with Debian 'testing' repos without the LMDE team fine-tuning them to work better with LMDE. I may be talking out of school here, but I think
that is what I have read on several forum comments and the blogs, etc.
I've used italics here to show that this is my understanding of what I have read, not necessarily talking for LMDE
