I tried to change the basic toolbar to cairo dock,a tutorial that i found told me to write in terminal gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.listso i write it and a window opened,i couled not find the text that told me(the tutorial i mean)so i closed the window,after that i keep taiking the same error
E: Type �sudo� is not known on line 55 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list E: The list of sources could not be read. Go to the repository dialogue to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
now whene i got in the winehq.list the text has gone and i take this error in update manager,my software center doesn't work and my terminal whenever i type sudo commands says
E: Type �sudo� is not known on line 55 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list
There is a problem with my source list (apparently) I'm running 11.04 if that helps.When I try to use apt-get install update for example, I get: "Malformed line 59 in source list etc/apt/sources.list"The same error occurs when trying to access synaptic package manager, it tells me there is a malformed line and the list of sources cannot be read.This error prevents me from apt-getting anything, updating and i suspect it is affecting the software center too.
During playing around sources, synaptic playing I messed up the default list. I know I should have been more careful. Anyways could someone tell me what the default the default sources.list that has free and non free etc for squueze please? I have been trying to get the default list but I cannot find it anywhere. There are alot of lists out there but nothing tagged like the "default" list.
I see that an update to 6.0.2 is scheduled for Sat, June 25, 2011: [URL] will I need to add "squeeze-proposed-updates" to my sources.list for 6.0.2, or will leaving "squeeze-updates" in place as is be sufficient? My current version and sources.list:
I just downloaded and installed Debian 6 netinstiso for testing. Everything is running ok except I cannot check items on software sources screen. This is the errors I get when trying to reload Synaptic Package manager.
I've been trying out a distribution based on Debian Squeeze, but what I'd really like to try is a minimal Debian distribution I can build from the ground up and customize as needed. I heard a lot of positive things about using netinst on machines that are usually hard to get regular installation disks to work on. Downloaded netinst for i386 this week from a link at [URL].. and attempted to install from scratch on my machine. I got past formatting my disk and was at the base install step. It keeps complaining about corrupt programs it can't install. I ran a check of the CD disk from the menu and it says there are no issues with the disk itself. I can see some basic directories and cdebootstrap installed on my hard disk. Would like to jump to installing kernel and grub or something and attempt to download some of the other programs later, but it won't let me bypass the step. Saw some articles about a Debian from Scratch project on the Internet, but doesn't look like it's active any more. What's the best way to get a minimal Debian distribution based on Squeeze installed to a hard drive? Should I just wait until the official release?
Just switched from stable to testing. To run a pure testing, can someone tell me if I have all the necessary repos below?
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main non-free deb http://getswiftfox.com/builds/debian unstable non-free deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org testing main non-free deb http://mozilla.debian.net/ squeeze-backports iceweasel-4.0
I'm having a problem updating or even running the software center. Each time I open either of them, I get an error stating "'E:Type 'ntu-wine/ppa/ubuntu' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-wine-ppa-natty.list'" and the update manager or software center closes. This has just been happening a few days ago and I would like a fix for it. I'm using 11.04 beta 1 and my WINE version is the latest development release. Anyone know how to fix this error? I tried unchecking my WINE PPAs in sources but that don't seem to do any good.
I'm wondering about this because I'm considering doing this myself. Specifically, I'd like to know if your wireless configurations survived the upgrade or not. Meaning, where they removed, altered, or hopefully, where they preserved as they where?
Also if anyone knows of a good link regarding this particular upgrade, by all means please share. I have only been able to dig up a bit of dirt on the topic but they were concerning older Debian releases. Maybe theres not much difference?
I have an older system that has been running testing for about 4 years. Originally I was running testing for several packages that were not yet available in stable. However, now that this system has a more crucial role in the network I have considered moving it to stable in hopes that it I can gain some insurance on it's uptime. It is important to note that I have never had a problem with the testing distribution and would be quite content to continue running it; I do want to know my options though.
I have not yet updated the system since the stable release of squeeze, I am considering to change my sources from testing to stable and just let apt take care of the rest. Anyone have any experience with such a thing? After searching Google I have found some solutions to force a downgrade, but that is really not what needs to be done here. I suppose I should have switched my sources to squeeze some time ago and this probably would have worked itself out.
A similar question is what happens a couple of years from now when another release happens. Have you had good luck updating from old stable to stable? I've run testing on several machines now for several years and have went through freezes and dist-upgrades several times with no major problems at all. Will I see the same stability if I move to the stable distribution?
I just upgraded from Debian 8.1 stable to testing and finally to unstable, looking for latest software.However, I cannot find sources for security or software updates, the only repository that works from me is
today i finished my first debian lenny install. x86 version. i ran into problem with sources.list # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.4 _Lenny_ - Official i386 CD Binary-1 20100131-18:53]/ lenny main deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.4 _Lenny_ - Official i386 CD Binary-1 20100131-18:53]/ lenny main

I tried using sarge release for debian and I don't know what sources.list to use because in all the generators I can only choose Lenny, Sid, Squeeze or Etch release. What release should I use with Sarge? Or where do I get sources.list especially for it?
I have created a custom debian netinst USB stick. It has the default UK repositories in the sources list, but people in the US also need to use the stick from time-to-time.
Would it be a bad idea to mix US and UK repositories in the sources.list? Would Debian be clever enough to pick up the best repo depending on where the user is using the OS from? Or would I need to be a bit clever and create some sort of script to deal with this. (I am avoiding non-free/experimental software).
I am still getting the error that no kernel modules are found when trying to load components from the CD on the multi-arch version of Squeeze. Are these even tested prior to releasing them? I mean I know it's testing but I thought we were reaching a release-date and the installer is 100% broken and has been for months. I have a pile of useless multi-arch CDs for Squeeze that won't install on 64bit or 32bit machines due to not finding the kernel modules. Can we get some testing on the installer portion of Squeeze?
For anyone using Blueman with Testing (Squeeze), todays Python upgrade to version 2.6 stops it from working due to a Blueman bug. This has been fixed in blueman version 1.21-4, which you can install from SID if you don't want to wait the 10 days for the normal migration.
