HELP! HELP!! HELP!!!

Yesterday I did a new install of some acpkeages and upgrade of some of my
already installed packages (including apt and synaptic).

I seem to have lost the list of the repositories under syanaptic.

How can I recover this info?

Or can someone post the list of all repositories that I can cut & paste?

Thanks.

Forgot to mention that syaptic version 0.48.2

Don't know if this a bug of some sort?

Thanks.

Synaptic doesn't actually hold the list, they are in the apt package.

What version of apt are you running?
Code:
rpm -q apt


You could also download this file:
ftp://ftp.blagblagblag.org/pub/BLAG/lin ... 9.i386.rpm

Then install it:
Code:
rpm -Uvh --force apt-0.5.5cnc6-4blag.rh9.i386.rpm


You'lll have to do the --force to overwrite whatever other version you have.

............OR...........

You could just edit your apt sources files. See:
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/

To add the blag one back, run these 2 lines:
Code:
echo "rpm http://www.blagblagblag.org/ 9000/i386 os updates errata" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/blag.list

echo "rpm http://www.blagblagblag.org/ 9000/i386 extras" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/blag.list

Jeff,

Thanks once again for your reply. I really, truly appreciate it.

I re-installed the apt package (albeit an older version) and got all
the repositories back. Now I am off again looking for the next RPM
to install.

Once again, thanks a bunch.

Jeff,

A follow-up question on updates/upgrades:

For example, my current installed apt version is: 0.5.5cnc6-4blag.rh9.
The latest update is 1.0.5.15cnc6-50.rh9.a

In general, is it safe to pick the latest version regardless of whether
it says BLAG or not? (I believe the issue of losing the list of repositories
may be related to this).

Thanks.

Blaggard

You can use applications outside of the repositories if you want. The only issue you face is that you then need to take care of dependency and configuration issues you may encounter.

Ya, you can use other repositories' apt-*.rpms, but they don't have the blag sources listen in them. If you install the most recent apt from the blag 9000 repository, it has all the main ones in there already. Unless you have a particular reason to do otherwise, I'd recommend just sticking with the blag apt. You probably don't want to do an "upgrade" or "dist-upgrade" with the other repositories enabled. Just do "install foo" with them. You don't /have/ to do it this way, but it will likely make blag upgrades smoother.

Jeff, Jason,

Thanks for your replies.

I had ALL the repositories turned on and it showed a LOT more
packages, normally available under BLAG.

So, for the time being, I wil stick to the packages under BLAG.

Thanks.

You can turn them all on for "install" operations, I just wouldn't do it for an "upgrade" operation. Feel free to install from the repositories... I try to be compatible with the ones that come in blag's apt (freshrpms, dag, atrpms, dries, newrpms).
