Repositories – announcement

To make our Update Process safer, and more maintainable, we need to make some changes in the repositories.

We need to create a separate testing environment for our repository, just like we have for our repository.
We also created a separate repository for the community packages:

I hear you say: “What does that mean to me?”

The next time I post, you will need to adapt your sources.list file.
So, keep your hands off that terminal now, and just read on 😉

After next post, open a terminal, and follow the below steps:


gksudo mousepad /etc/apt/sources.list

and change this line:

deb solydxk main upstream import community


deb solydxk main upstream import
deb solydxk main

SolydK / SolydK BO

kdesudo kate /etc/apt/sources.list

and change this line:

deb solydxk main upstream import kdenext community


deb solydxk main upstream import kdenext
deb solydxk main

Note: the community packages are not obligatory. You can leave them out.

I’ll repeat these steps when I blog that the repositories are ready.
I’m sorry for the inconvenience.

  1. Cant the sources.list be autoupdated? like have a SolydXK repo package that will get updated first, then reload the repo and then do updates?

    Becuase then the noob user would not have to know any terminal or need to check the website, they could just click update.

  2. For a, hopefully, single action, that would be a bit too much.
    It would not consider custom sources.list files, and those people would not be too happy when there sources were overwritten.

  3. But if you put your source files in the source.list.d folder it would work, because then it would be your custom source list that would, only, be your source list and if they had their own custom sources.list file it would still read from the sources.list.d folder.
