New Repository for Bianca

Postby clem on Thu Jan 18, 2007 5:03 pm

Hi,

Please update your /etc/apt/sources.list with the following line for the Linux Mint repository:

Code: Select all
deb http://www.linuxmint.com/repository bianca/


Note the / in the end of the line...

When this is done, update with this command:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update

Use sudo.

For example: sudo gedit <name of the file>
Type this in the terminal and press 'Enter' and fill in your password when asked.

Another way to update your sources.list is in through Synaptic.

Yes, things should work on Ubuntu 6.10.. although it is not guaranteed (I don't think I used any assumptions yet.. but I am definitely assuming people are using Linux Mint when I package these apps.. so it might happen in the future that an Ubuntu user is simply missing something and requires extra steps after the package installation..).

You can use the linuxmint repository as described above. You don't need any other repositories for it to work..(appart from the Ubuntu repos of course) and it should work fine on Ubuntu 6.10.

In Bianca, on top of what was there for Bea.. medibuntu is also included by default.

I have the standard repositories in /apt/repositories, which were installed from the CD, to which I have added the Bianca one. Done an update, followed by an upgrade, but there are no new packages to upgrade.

It still boot up as Bea!

What am I doing wrong, please? I thought I had followed the Bianca instructions correctly.

My repository list is:

## comments (##) in front of any line to remove it from being checked.
## Use the following sources.list at your own risk.

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu edgy main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu edgy main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu edgy-proposed main restricted universe multiverse

## MAJOR BUG FIX UPDATES produced after the final release

deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu edgy-updates main restricted universe multiverse

## UBUNTU SECURITY UPDATES

Bianca is not released yet so you can't upgrade to it.. :) This repository is for people to test packages that will be included in Bianca.

Thanks for the answer, Clem.

I thought that the new repository contained packages which will be in Bianca, but which may, in the meantime, be used in Bea. Sort of a partial upgrade.

Confused as usual :oops:

Well you are right as well. They can be used under Bianca. If you think of it Bea and Bianca are just the same distribution... they're just snapshots of the same thing at two different times. If you install everything from this repository and upgrade you'll get closer to what Bianca will be.

So yes... in a way you're upgrading towards Bianca.. but it's still evolving so you're not getting the final Bianca...as this is not released and doesn't exist as such yet.

When the final release of Bianca is out, I'll post a guide to upgrade to it. In the meantime you can use this repository to "upgrade" Bea/Barbara/Edgy with the latest mint tools.

Clem.

dist-upgrade for Bianca?

Postby GoldNugget on Fri Jan 19, 2007 5:56 pm

HI! Will there be a dist-upgrade option for Bianca? Would love to be able to upgrade without wiping everything.
Mint Rocks. Thanks for all your hard work.

Not sure how I missed your previous post. It seems there will be an upgrade path to Bianca. Thanks!

I know that this isn't really a big deal but, I'm pretty particular about things. Whenever I install something off of the Mint repositories it always complains and gives me this message:

Code: Select all
WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!
<name of mint app here>

Install these packages without verification [y/N] ?


I know, from a security sense, I'm really not supposed to say yes. But we're all family here and can trust these repos right? Does it take much to become authenticated/verified? I'm sure that's on the list but there are other things that take priority right? Is it saying that they're not digitally signed or no like say "web certificate" kinda thing? What does it want or is it looking for?

Hi Frijolie,

This is something that will be fixed in Bianca. In the meantime I didn't want to spend too much time on it. Basically, packages can be signed with a GPG key by the maintainer. And users can download that GPG key and add them to their list of "trusted sources". When APT sees a non-signed package or a package which signature is not "trusted" by the user, you get that warning.

There's two solutions for this: either we start signing our packages (I have to see how much extra work this is for me.. but I think it's small enough) and we communicate the GPG to our users (and have set already in Bianca), or... we disable these warnings altogether :)
