I have a question on this. Should one normally have the following line
in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/64studio.list :

# Security updates
deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main

And should it always be there, for example, when doing a dist-upgrade?

I always comment out the Debian stuff and any other sources when doing
that, but maybe I should always leave security in?

Thanks!

-Susan

Hi Susan,

I believe that when doing a dist-upgrade it is best to have only the
64studio repository of choice activated. Just afterwards, enable the
debian security repository, and do a "mark all upgrades" in Synaptic,
and get the updates.

Common things updated regularly includes the Mozilla packages (Iceweasel
-dove etc) and other security loopholes.


Cheers,
Quentin
