:( I accidently destroyed my source list

Recommended Posts

hymneforthedead    0

so as the topic title reads, I was doing a su>gedit on my source files list for auto update and I accidentally had everything saved AFTER I deleted everything.I'm using debian linux 4.0 etch.

so I was wondering if someone could post a source list that would help me out here and throw me back into gear.....

I want to get into software development for Nix, (either debian or slack), but right now I'm just interested in maintaining my disctro. from "apt-get updates"

Any help would be appricated. :pinch:

Linux should automatically make a backup of files you change. Check to see if you have a sources.list~

The post above contains repos for testing. You obviously run etch, which is stable, so that isn't for you. Here is a sources.list that should work for you:

deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ stable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ stable main contrib non-free

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

#Marillat
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org stable main

Note that not all editors will make an auto-backup. Glad yours did! :yes:
