Small warning on upgrades since Debian Etch release

Post by tor » 09 Apr 2007, 13:27

This warning is for those people who have modified their /etc/apt/sources.list to include debian sources and pointed these against debian stable.

Since Debian Etch was released the 8th of April. This means that any sources that point to debian stable will now point against debian etch instead of the previously stable debian sarge.

If you have sources like this and happens to do a firmware upgrade via web-admin things will most likely go wrong.

How should you do if you want to install a new package then?

Hi John W,

As long as you dont have stable in your sources. There should be no problem.

A line like:

Code: Select all

deb http://ftp.se.debian.org/debian/ stable main
is a problem. It should look like this:

Code: Select all

deb http://ftp.se.debian.org/debian/ sarge main
