>   well i kind of crashed linux so bad there is nosources.list anymore lol, i tried to do a update into unstable items, so that wine will work, and in synaptic i did have to adjust the repositories to get the files, and remove the one that was bad. with the new wine asking for a unstable item(s) i think i should just switch to unstable version os and that would be a work around for me, since sarge didn't like the item i installed, and how it forced removal of gnome and other things, updates, and installs.

I think unstable will only get you more problems. How do you know it's
asking for a package from unstable? What package and which version is
it asking for?

Please keep the discussion on list.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
