    Help with Source List for Debian

    Ok, I want to update my version of KDE (it's a bizarre KDE 3.x version, cvs) to KDE 3.0.4. I went to kde's website and they have a Woody version. Now, every time I have tried to add one of the mirrors to my source list, it says that it can't stat the list (total failure). How do I write the entry in my source list so that I can upgrade my KDE?

    Thanks,

    Cheers

    Re:Help with Source List for Debian

    Has anyone used apt-spy? I d/l it and tried to run it, but it couldn't connect very well. Any ideas?

    apt-spy is pretty useless i found. if you want to find faster sources i believe netselect is what you want. it will choose the fastest servers for you and write a sources.list which you then use to replace your current list.
