Re: Sparcstation20 (32 bit) user needs good /etc/apt/sources.list
I can't get the /etc/apt/sources.list at the moment, but the file was generated using option 1 in dselect (repo set-up). Can anyway post a good sources.list for sparc (32)?

It'd help if you said exactly which error messages you get, and what
your sources.list looks like. Any unofficial sources there would cause
that warning about a missing key.
