Note: 3.1r0 CD image problem
A bug has been discovered in the 3.1r0 CD/DVD images: new installs from
these images will have a commented-out entry in /etc/apt/sources.list for
"http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates" rather than an active entry
for "http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates", and thus will not get
security updates by default. This was due to incorrect Release files on the

If you have already installed a system using a 3.1r0 CD/DVD image, you do
not need to reinstall. Instead, simply edit /etc/apt/sources.list, look for
any lines mentioning security.debian.org, change "testing" to "stable", and
remove "# " from the start of the line.

If you installed other than from a CD or DVD (for example, netboot, or
booting from floppy and installing the base system from the network), you
are not affected by this bug.

New 3.1r0a images will be available shortly to correct this flaw. We
apologise for the inconvenience.
