Notes about the installation and maintenance of Debian

This chapter contains notes of things I discover while I work with Debian, nothing very constructed but it should allow me, and perhaps some of you, to avoid doing twice the same errors.

Debian Repositories

I have some Debian repositories, which you can use by adding following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb distro/
deb-src distro/

where distro can be one of experimental, unstable, testing or ubuntu. Currently I'm not very consequent with those names, but generally my packages go from experimental to unstable to testing, and I tend to use ubuntu if the package needs adaptation compared to Debian.
Anyway, once you've done this, also call as root:

	wget -O - \
		| apt-key add -
My signature looks as follows:
pub   1024D/869D2871 2004-02-17
      Key fingerprint = 98FB 95CD 6C40 4DF7 E758  601D 27CD 3F36 869D 2871
uid                  Eric Lavarde <>
sig 3        869D2871 2009-03-29  Eric Lavarde <>

sig          869D2871 2004-02-17  Eric Lavarde <>

Once this is done, update your repository cache:

	aptitude update

and you're ready to install my packages (mainly FreeMind or Freeplane).

Debian links

Beside the official ones:

I also described the installation of Debian on an HP nc6000.
