This is, unfortunately, a fairly common occurrence with the Debian repos. You dodn't do any thing wrong; it has to do with the developers updating the repos and the database momentarily going out of sync. Just give it a few minutes and try updating again.
I would like to leave epel enabled and configure it to allow updating only the packages that were installed from epel itself in the first place (packages which were manually installed from epel because of specific needs). Is there a yum conf directive to allow this?
In my opinion, docs should only be included in a package if they are small, maybe a few hundred kilobytes, and should otherwise be split into seperate $pkgname-docs packages. Only about 22 packages in the repos use seperate -doc or -docs packages right now.
I've just installed the latest version of #! and have run an update.Some of the packages are a little old such as chromium. I've been looking through some of the postings in the forum trying to figure out if I can switch to using the Mint LMDE repos in place of the standard #! repos.Will this work? I'm thinking that they are both Debian based??Thanks
We primary use CentOS on our production infrastructure and we like to use yum for the installation of packages because it makes things easy for our ops guys, that being said CentOS repos usually don't have very up to date versions of packages. What's the best way to get the most up to date versions of packages with yum?
After you install Crunchbang and you login the first time, a script will execute in a terminal window. Just answer the questions and it will install additional software packages such as LibreOffice.Then, you probably want to run Synaptic Package Manager and update your system to the latest software versions. As far as repos, Waldorf is already setup to use Debian Wheezy stable.
