Re: Messed up with Sources.list and preference list!

I expected, someone having idea's of taming synaptic! How about purging it completely going for an apt-get update and Re-Starting the machine, will that help! Before trying I wanted some input, if that will make any change as such.

Re: Messed up with Sources.list and preference list!

The difference is that it only removes package files that can no longer be downloaded, and are largely useless. This ...
