You can safely generate sources.list online

Code: Select all

Thanks to everyone who mentioned this

Just to update you guys,
I have noticed that I receive page not found error and some repos need to manually add "deb" infront of the link.

Hey guys,

right now my sources.list looks like this

Code: Select all
deb http://linux-mint.froonix.org/ debian main upstream import
deb http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/linuxmint/debian/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/linuxmint/debian/latest/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/linuxmint/debian/latest/multimedia testing main non-free


Is there any way I can change the servers to some other country? I'm not even from France :D
Or is there some reason why the servers have to be like this?

German servers would be appreciated...

mint-debian-mirrors has picked that server for because is the fastest from where you connect;
you can run in terminal
Code: Select all
mint-choose-debian-mirror
and pick another server.

Thanks!

Is it normal that I can only choose between two mirrors?

you should have 3 options, the problem is that at the moment the main server is still under heavy load and is not showing on the options.
