    newie apt-get question

    hey guys i was wondering how you add an internet source to apt-get so when i type
    apt-get install pakage
    it will acess the site and download and install + dependencies.

    Also do you know of some good internet sources?

    If you want sources, the first step is naming the distro (ubuntu, debian stable/sarge, debian testing/etch, an RPM based distro etc.).

    For ubuntu, you should check the ubuntuguide site (the latest ubuntu is )

    For debian, maybe check out they have a huge list
