Re: is apt working?
I was having a problem with "apt-get update" also, not
the same strangeness that arthur was getting.. Mine
downloading everything fine but then saying a line in
the Package list was too long...... Anyway 0.3.19 is
working much better..
In sources.list I am using lines like:
Ugh, well that is supposed to be one line, but this
web based email .. well it sucks. /me to real email
soon. Anyway, if I want to do something like
deb ftp://ftpsite/debian sid main/binary-hurd-i386
does that even make sense? I don't understand how the
distribution carries over to the hurd. Until I do I
am just going to use the full pathname..
