<SOLVED> confused myself with repos -care to take a look?

Postby fiver22 on Tue Oct 02, 2012 3:26 pm

Could someone take a look at my sources and tell me if they are appropriate?
I like testing things out and despite THIS post I usually have a decent idea about what I'm doing ;)
What 'setup' the sources indicate I'm running?
Should I add deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org testing main non-free and removing the existing '/debian/incoming/multimedia testing main non-free'?
I'm pertty curious about zerozero's "LMDE Tracking ________ "threads and wondering which I should be following.
my current sources:
Code: Select all
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com debian main upstream import incoming
deb-src http://packages.linuxmint.com debian main upstream import incoming
deb http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/linuxmint/debian/incoming testing main contrib non-free
deb-src http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/linuxmint/debian/incoming testing main contrib non-free
deb http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/linuxmint/debian/incoming/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/linuxmint/debian/incoming/multimedia testing main non-free
deb-src http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/linuxmint/debian/incoming/multimedia testing main non-free

#deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian experimental main contrib non-free

Thanks for your time.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

not a good idea because you would start getting newer lib/packages from deb-multimedia that soon would break the multimedia stack in your install (happened in the past between UP2 and UP3 that's why multimedia and security from that moment on are part of the mirrored mint repos http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=1836)
