Black celebration

Monday, 9 April 2007

My apt-get repository has moved- no longer:
deb sarge ...
deb-src sarge ...

Instead you should now use:

#  Steve Kemp's repository:  Sarge
deb sarge main non-free contrib
deb-src sarge main non-free contrib

Or :

#  Steve Kemp's repository:  Etch
deb etch main non-free contrib
deb-src etch main non-free contrib

This scheme should be more extensible and will be easier for me to maintain.

I’ve setup symlinks so that clients who don’t update will still have something working – but I’d really rather you switched if you’re using these repositories.

I’ve imported the Sarge repository fully, for AMD64/i386. I’ll go through the Etch one shortly – I think most packages people care about are in the new release, the biggest package is xen-tools which has had several important/interesting/useful changes since the Etch freeze…

There are some custom packages that seem suprisingly popular, such as the steve-completion which will need to be imported for etch too – but I’ll do those by the end of the week all being well.

BUG: if apt-get honoured HTTP redirects I’d not have to post this here and hope for the best …
