Changing Debian sources easier
Just a quick tip, a small tool that was developed internally by Carl to streamline editing of the sources.list file.
On the command line - as root - try:
# change_distribution --help Usage: change_distribution [options] distribution ... Options: --upstream, -u include upstream in sources.list --source, -s include source packages in sources.list --nonfree, -n include upstream non free sources --contrib, -c include upstream contrib sources --help, -h show brief help --man, -m display manual
For instance, on B3:
change_distribution elvin -u
..would enable the B3 stable repo (elvin) and also add the debian upstream sources. This works on B2 and B3.
