Why doesnt Mint use a simplified sources.list

Postby makh » Sat Nov 11, 2017 7:31 am

Hi

The sources.list of Debian, Devuan and Ubuntu are pretty simple and straight forward.

Why not like:

Code: Select all

deb server/linuxmint sonya main


OR if someone wants a current stable:

Code: Select all

deb server/linuxmint current main


Thankyou

Linux Mint doesn't dictate how people or organizations that host a Linux Mint repository mirror on their servers do directory naming on their own server.

The two most common ways are:
deb server/linuxmint-packages/ sonya main
And:
deb server/linuxmint/packages/ sonya main
