    Debian update problem!

    I installed Debian, the Knoppix version, and when I performed "apt-get update" it went all the way to 99% complete, and then it stopped. I killed the process, and tried to perform it again. However, everytime I try to perform it again, I keep getting my connection refused (111). When I try other apt-get functions, such as installing new software, it won't complete and tells me to run "apt-get update" which I can't because my connection keeps getting denied. Please help me, as I can't install any new stuff!

    What do you have as the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list ? That's what specifies what apt-get update is querying.

    Knoppix forum has something about apt.
    I was screwed up also but I got it to work after looking at the forum.

    Try "apt-get upgrade" first

    First, make sure that you don't have any incomplete lines (i.e. if you updated your sources.list with a text editor that has a hard word-wrap feature, it could screw you up. Each line must start with deb.)

    I've never seen any of those ftp2 entries before. Out of curiosity, try commenting everything out, then append these to the end:

    deb ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian sarge main contrib non-free

    deb http://non-us.debian.org/ sarge/non-US main contrib non-free

    deb ftp://security.debian.org/debian-security stable/updates main contrib non-free

    Note that in all of the above, the forum forces a word-wrap like I mentioned. Make sure each of the above is one line in your actual sources.list.

    Then:

    apt-get update

    Hope that helps!

    Hey, thanks guys! I was still unable to get it working, but I reinstalled Debian using knoppix. This time, instead of choosing "Knoppix-Like" system, I chose the Debian version. I recommend that one instead, as it is a fully functional debian system, that works 100% And, you don't have to install packages, it is already done for you. The apt-get now works for me (I still had to update the sources.list and remove the ftp2) Anyway, I am supremely impressed by Debian and I love the way it looks after the package dependancy, cause sometimes package dependencies are bastards!

    That's awesome that you got everything sorted out. Glad to hear that you're liking Debian. I've been using Linux for 2-something years, I consider myself relatively proficient, but I never get over how great APT is compared to the other package management systems out there (to say nothing about building from source, which is a huge pain in the ass most of the time.)

    True that. I have been using Linux just as long, but I was simply amazed by APT. I just wished I had Debian earlier instead of wasting my time with Fedora. No offence to fedora users, but not including multimedia support was especially a problem with me, as my linux box I use as a Jukebox as well. But thanks to Debian and APT, package management has never been so easy. Thanks for your help on the subject too!

    Happy to help! Speaking of multimedia, here's a top-notch resource for multimedia apps in Debian:

    http://marillat.free.fr

    This guy builds _tons_ of Debian packages for just about every video player, audio player, video converter, and miscellaneous multimedia programs out there for Linux. You can append the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list, do an apt-get update, then apt-get install of mplayer, gmplayer, transcode, lame, you name it.

    deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ stable main

    (There is also testing and unstable available.)
