Adding wheezy repos <SOLVED>

Postby kaamos » Thu Jan 26, 2012 11:45 am

I am trying to include these following repositories to the software sources:

Code: Select all

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

However, when I do update, I get a warning messages that includes a number of packages that will be uninstalled in the process: two of which are: mintinstall and mintmenu.
Will this break my system? I haven't yet done the update yet.

Thanks for any input :)

mintinstall is the Software Manager and mintmenu you can guess.
Maybe you should wait until the next update pack is released.
If you need something specific from Debian testing, just enable those repos, run 'apt-get update' (or 'apt-update' I think is an alias for it in Mint), install what you need, disable the repos and update the package list again.
