jessie - stretch repo
« on: April 27, 2015, 03:07:35 pm »
hi all
was wondering...
debian guys released jessie as stable, i was checking my repos, and in main list is
Code: [Select]
## Other repos can be found in /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory ##
deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates contrib non-free main
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates contrib non-free main
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ jessie-proposed-updates contrib non-free main
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ jessie main
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian unstable main

should we replace jessie with stretch?

Yes, you should.
Anyway, all sparky iso images features "testing" repos instead od "jessie" so there is no change needed.
Looks like you changed it to "jessie"?
Nothing is easy as it looks.

With an interest in shedding a little more light on the situation, I just checked my Synaptic Repository listings and both Testing and Jessie Repository listings are listed, as well as a PlayonLinux.com listing for Squeeze.  (This on my Sparky Ultra Openbox).

Which makes me think that neither Galen nor Pavroo is "stubborn" but rather "committed" to getting Galen's Sparky Gameover installation working - in fact, that's very clear, and is a very positive thing - for all Sparky users.

Another thing:  LMDE GAVE UP on Debian Testing (and offers far fewer desktop environments than Sparky).  This clearly demonstrates that both Pavroo's competence and committment are what make Sparky the best Debian Testing derivative available.

Actually of i remember good I had both testing and Jessie,  so u had to comment some lines.. Most probably my fault..

Well..  Mint guys Debian distro never worked for me on any computer..
As far as you know will they use Debian stable or have they quitted Debian world?

Yes sparky team rulez!
