Re: [SLUG] Apologies - my /etc/apt/sources.list


You should make a comparison of the valid lines in the sources.list and
the ones you are having trouble with. 


These are valid lines:
> deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
> deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US stable/non-US main contrib non-free
> 

These are not:
> deb http://mirror.pacific.net.au/debian/unstable main contrib non-free
> deb http://mirror.pacific.net.au/debian-non-US/unstable/non-US main contrib non-free
> 

Try this:
deb http://mirror.pacific.net.au/debian unstable main contrib non-free
deb http://mirror.pacific.net.au/debian-non-US unstable/non-US main contrib non-free

Or use what pacific.net.au seem to be recomending:
deb ftp://ftp.debian.pacific.net.au/debian unstable main non-free contrib
deb ftp://ftp.debian.pacific.net.au/debian-non-US unstable/non-US main contrib non-free

apt-get update and you are away...

I wouldn't suggest mixing stable and unstable sources like you are... it
can only cause trouble.
