Edit sources.list
« on: November 26, 2007, 01:28:46 pm »
Hi!
I tried to install ntfs-config using the Terminal to be able to get access to my external HD (USB). I always get the error message that it cannot be found although it is part of the universe repository.
Could I edit my sources.list and add some sources I definitly know ntfs-config is in or isn't it recommended to do so because linuxmce could have problems with that?
Thanks!

Any ideas?
I can't install any packages at all. I always get a "package not found" error when trying to install one. Is this some kind of protection for LinuxMCE? And does LinuxMCE remove the standard Kubuntu Package Managers like Adept? I can't find them.
Are you guys able to install packages?  ???

Currently lmce disables the normal package management... although if you add repos back into sources.list and then do apt-get update... and apt-get install <package name> this will work.

However you need to be careful... and you can very easily break your installation if you add back a repository that might have unistall any required packages. So I would suggest being very careful if you do!

I have a few questions about the repository's. I've tried several times to install LMCE on top of Hardy(8.04) and well I get nothing but pure frustration during the download process after I choose the mirror. in the command line I get nothing but url can not be found. ???

I know it's not my box, because I can update just fine and do, before I start the LMCE install.

If you all of you are willing please post what mirror your downloading your updates form, I live in the United states, so update servers form their are preferred.
Thanks

LMCE is not compatible with Hardy (8.04).  There are two flavours of LMCE you may install LMCE 0710 (for Kubuntu 7.10) or LMCE 0810 (for Kubuntu Intrepid, 8.10). 

You should perform an 0810 install if you are using newer hardware, follow these instructions: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installing_0810
