misc:sources.list

Sources.list

This is my /etc/apt/sources.list which grew during the past few years. Maybe it'll be helpful for you.

You should—of course—use a Debian mirror that is not too far away from you. The examples below contain the generic mirrors where you have to replace “XX” by your language code.

If you use a notebook, make sure to also read these instructions and enable TLP in your sources.list!

For servers

Although my page is aimed at desktop usage, please don't use the above sources.list on a server! There it should look something like this.

If you are using fast-moving packages like ClamAV you should also enable the 'stretch-updates' repository. And for firmware files (sometimes necessary in servers) you should add the “non-free” section as well.

Wheezy

Although the official support for Wheezy has ended in april 2016, you can still get security support for Wheezy by adding the wheezy-lts repository. However, this works only for the i386 and amd64 architectures and will be maintained until may 2018.

Because of the by now very old software available in Wheezy I do no longer recommend to use Wheezy on a desktop.
