    Debian Sources List

    Well I been using my Mini Mac for awhile and haven't used my tower system. Now I just hooked up the tower and decided to update Debian Sid.

    I assume since the new Sarge has been released, parts of my sources list is not working. Here is the one's not working.

    Err http://non-us.debian.org sid/non-US/main Packages
    404 Not Found
    Ign http://non-us.debian.org sid/non-US/main Release
    Err http://non-us.debian.org sid/non-US/contrib Packages
    404 Not Found
    Ign http://non-us.debian.org sid/non-US/contrib Release
    Err http://non-us.debian.org sid/non-US/main Sources
    404 Not Found
    Ign http://non-us.debian.org sid/non-US/main Release
    Err http://non-us.debian.org sid/non-US/contrib Sources


    Does anybody know how I can fix these?

    Thnx.

    Re:Debian Sources List

    I did an "apt-setup" to fix that.

    Thanks Radar. I'm still getting the same errors, which seems to be from the non-us sites.

    I wonder why is that? Do I really need the non-us sites?

    Re:Debian Sources List

    This is mine:

    Code:
    deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ testing main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ testing main non-free contrib
    
    deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
    Maybe that's why I no longer get errors. My sources.list is incomplete. Oh well

    Re:Debian Sources List

    How do you upgrade it? Are you using Sid?

    Re:Debian Sources List

    I just stay on the testing branch. (on my file server) My laptop is unstable branch.

    The mirrors

    Looks like the sources.list is complete based on what I see in each branch.

    Maybe only include those but replace with sid or unstable.

    Re:Debian Sources List

    On the Sarge release there was an error in teh shiped sources.list, you just need to change the unstable lines in your sources.list.
    These are the ones I use:
    Code:
    # Stable - non-US
    deb http://ftp.se.debian.org/debian-non-US/ sarge/non-US main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://ftp.se.debian.org/debian-non-US/ sarge/non-US main non-free contrib

    Are you using sarge with Sid for non-us?

    Ok, I got most of my sources list working. I just stop using the non-us lines. Someone else said it is not being used anymore.

    Now when I run apt-get upgrade, after apt-get update, I get this error message on udev.

    Any suggestions on fixing this?

    Thnx.

    Re:Debian Sources List

    Since Sarge has been released and it's been around 2 months, maybe I could try doing a apt-get dist-upgrade. I only done the apt-get upgrade at this point.

    Do you think this could solve the udev problem?

    Thnx.
