LMDE Testing version: Can I have someone's sources.list?

Postby byronarn » Thu Jul 12, 2012 1:55 pm

Yesterday, I updated from stable to testing because, in part, I wanted the latest GIMP (single window mode has really made my life easier! Lol).

Well, I was updating the system today, and I noticed this error as it was updating:

Err http://ftp.us.debian.org wheezy-updates/main Sources
404 Not Found [IP: 128.61.240.89 80]
Err http://ftp.us.debian.org wheezy-updates/main i386 Packages
404 Not Found [IP: 128.61.240.89 80]


So I went back and looked at my sources list. Here it is:

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main

deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main

#### Wine - http://www.winehq.org/
deb http://www.lamaresh.net/apt sid main


I noticed that they are all from Debian, no Linux Mint repositories! Apparently, not thinking about it, I copied and pasted someone's sources.list file from a Debian user, not from a LMDE user!

Being the idiot I am, I didn't back up my sources list, either. So, can someone paste their sources list so that I can update my source's list and then re-upgrade my software, using the correct sources? Thanks!

As of yesterday, I had the latest stable LMDE with only the wine repository added to my sources.list. (I know someone will ask about what version I have! :-) )

Here is my LMDE/Testing

You can use 'testing' or 'wheezy'
I use 'testing' as it will stay testing when 'wheezy' goes stable.

Code: Select all

#####-  MINT -#########
deb http://mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/linuxmint-packages/ debian main upstream import
#####-  Testing  -#######
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main non-free


ADD the deb-scr's if you need source codes

PS

The error you are getting is probably cause the repos are temporatily down, not because Mint is missing. :wink:

PPS

I guess you are aware if you do a fullDU with testing/wheezy your going to get tons of updates.
And if your using Cinnamon, it will no longer work until a new version comes down.

Best check here viewtopic.php?f=198&t=67502

======================

EDIT:

This doesn't look right ?

Code: Select all

deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main

Thanks for your help! :-) So, based upon your sources.list file and adding my wine repository as well as the deb-src files, I have the following. Does it look right?

#####- MINT -#########
deb http://mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/linuxmint-packages/ debian main upstream import
#####- Testing -#######
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main non-free
deb-src http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main non-free

#### Wine - http://www.winehq.org/
deb http://www.lamaresh.net/apt sid main

Hi Byron

Yes, that looks good.
Not sure what country you are in, but those mirrors are US. You may want to change to your own country (for faster downloads).
http://www.debian.org/mirror/list

As I mentioned before, if you haven't yet updated to testing/wheezy your in for a lot of package updates, and you will loose Cinnamon for the time being (Until a newer version comes down).

If you choose to do that and have any problems the tracking testing thread that I linked to earlier should help with any breakages...


Good Luck :wink:

I just caught one error in the sources I gave you
(I am tracking SID, haven't used testing in a while)
Not sure, if it makes a difference, BUT...

Code: Select all

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free


Should be (note the slash after debian). Sorry! :oops:

Code: Select all

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free

get rid of everything except your first two line, these are not needed:

Code: Select all

deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main

#### Wine - http://www.winehq.org/
deb http://www.lamaresh.net/apt sid main


You may also want to use a different mirror or use the redirector.
# Official Debian mirrors http://www.debian.org/mirror/list
# Also at http://ftp.debian.org/debian/README.mirrors.txt
# Debian mirrors HTTP redirector - http://http.debian.net/

Testing like sid only needs 1 or 2 lines

Any special reason why you rely on that particular Wine repository? It seems to be way behind the curve with package updates.
