Replacing Linux Mint repos with debian.org repos?

Postby Absolette » Tue Jul 24, 2012 6:00 am

Hi all,

I just installed a fresh copy of Mint, and when I install packages with apt it seems awfully slow, usually downloading at 5-10kbps. I know it's not my connection since using the Internet in the browser works fine. I don't know if it's the Linux Mint servers that are slow or something else on my end, but my question is this:

Is it possible to replace the stock LMDE repositories in /etc/apt/sources.list with Debian ones, without breaking anything?

Thanks!

Moved here as this is about LMDE.

The LMDE FAQ answers this somewhat, here viewtopic.php?f=197&t=91405.

i think you should tryu pointing the apt manager to another server closer to your place and give it a try. Pointing it to a debian repo will also change the software sources and will intimate you a lot of updates which are not approved and check by linuxmint.
