E.g. Ubuntu Server offers only security updates for software contained in the main repository - how can I check, which installed packages are / are not in the main repo? Thanks!
I read some posts and parts of FHS to understand which directory I should install packages in. As far as I could understand /opt is for independent packages and /usr/local is for packages that are not maintained by distro repo's.
I want to install a network emulator called "mininet" on my Debian wheezy, so that all users can use it.
You could use the Siduction Xfce Next repo:http://packages.siduction.org/?Reposito … _next_i386 | http://packages.siduction.org/?Reposito … next_amd64^These have the latest stable release of Xfce.The source.list line: deb http://packages.siduction.org/xfcenext unstable main$ wget http://packages.siduction.org/base/pool/main/s/siduction-archive-keyring...
