Re: Newbie Question
Now that the standard Debian mirror system supports amd64, (apt/dpkg)
take care of getting you the correct packages for your architecture...
I use [in /etc/apt/sources.list], where 'unstable'(sid) is the release
set that I use, you should stick with what ever release you currently
deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free
I use 'apt-get update' to update my package lists, and 'apt-get
upgrade' to upgrade my packages... and 'apt-get install <packageName>'
to install packages
Also, check out the debian package 'newbiedoc'
for lots of good info on 'apt' and other good things
lots of luck

Finaly found the amd64 mailing list.
Browsing through the mailing list archives I noticed that there are
several locations to point my apt sources.lst
I have 2 machines running amd64 , 1 I have setup with apt-proxy (what
are other people using ?)
and I point to
but I was reading that I should be using the normal deb archive
locations for example
which is what I use for my i386 machine
so what do I use both the former for the older packages and the later
for etch ie unstable packages ??
