Where to put these??

Postby amandus » Sun Sep 09, 2012 12:27 pm

Update Pack 5 is ready for you to test

Sources:

deb http://packages.linuxmint.com debian main upstream import incoming
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/incoming testing main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/incoming/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/incoming/multimedia testing main non-free

NOTE THE PRESENCE OF "incoming" at the end of "deb http://packages.linuxmint.com debian main upstream import", it's new and very important!!

If you don't know how to change your sources.list, then you should probably not be using incoming...

But if you want to try, you should paste the previous lines in your sources.list file :

In a terminal type :
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
And then replace the lines in the files by the previous ones !

If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

Make sure you replace the existing entries (not simply add these new ones). I have some 3rd party repositories that I use, but I have come accustomed to making a backup of source.list and then replacing everything in the file with the new entries (in this case incoming update pack 5). I've done the "manually merge the new lines and delete the applicable old ones" in the past, missing one or two along the way, and results were disastrous when doing a dist-upgrade :) Lessons learned :) Even if your eyes think you caught all the conflicting entries, if you have a screen-full of them, it's best to start with a clean sources.list, do your upgrade, and then retrieve entries one-by-one from your old source.list file into your new one.
