    Sources.list for Debian Squeeze?


    I have questions about my sources.list since the up upgrade to wheezy as stable.

    I am still using Squeeze and would like to know if I need to change my sources.list or leave it the same since it became oldstable?

    I have these prefixes at the beginning of the list:
    Ign The Opera .deb Repository squeeze/non-free i386 Packages
    Hit Debian Backports squeeze-backports Release
    What do the Ign or Hit mean?
    I have one I assume is warning:
    W: Conflicting distribution: The Opera .deb Repository squeeze Release (expected squeeze but got stable)

    How would I fix this?

    This is sources.list for opera:
    ## Opera webbrowser:
    #wget -O - http://deb.opera.com/archive.key | apt-key add -
    deb Index of /opera squeeze non-free
    Thanks for help

    What does your sources.list say? Without knowing that, it's not possible to say what you should do. Your post is slightly confusing to me. Can you just copy/paste your entire sources.list file? Also, is there anything in the sources.list.d folder? If so, what?

    There is nothing in the sources.list.d folder.

    You can ignore these messages.

    Ign means there are no changes in the pdiff index file, so it wont waste bandwidth by downloading it again.
    Hit means apt checked the timestamps on package list, those match and there are no changes.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    I've never seen a sources.list in that format. Normally you would have
    Code:
    deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian sid main non-free contrib
    I'm not sure how, or if, index-of-debian would work.

    The Opera warning, I don't know. I don't use it, and that's not a standard Debian repository. No telling how they have that set up. But I would assume they only have one repository, for the current stable. You might need to change that repository to either wheezy or stable. Right now, they're the same, but won't always be. If you want to always use the stable repository, you can put stable instead of the current name. If you want to upgrade your entire system to current stable, you can change everything to either stable or wheezy and do a dist-upgrade. But if you want to stay on squeeze, then you may have problems with opera. Changing that line to wheezy might work, or it might not, depending on the dependencies opera uses.
