I would not recommend doing thisOh, thanks for letting me know that. I think it's best I wait until Janice is released then.
I wanted to know what exactly is this whole "lack of sources" thing?
What sources are lacking? (I found on the "samsung open source" website many sources for the i9300)
What benefits will be if the sources will be published?
Is there any sign from samsung to release them?
It seems like only yesterday that the top of the line Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone was released. A timing problem existed with the release as the Galaxy S III came out close to the same time Google released Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. This meant the devices were initially delivered with Ice Cream Sandwich.
This is more of a curiosity question as I try to get a better understanding of apt and package management.
I'm seeing that in my /etc/apt/ and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ folders I have very or sometimes identical files which have the extension of sources.list, sources.list.distUpgrade, sources.list.save, and so on.
What's the point of these duplicate or similar files?
The Ubuntu sources.list generator, is a web application that can create custom sources.list files for various version of Ubuntu. The sources.list file tells the packaging system where it can look for software to install. The generator can add many additional sources, including those for proprietary software.
