Sorry if somebody have already asked this, but I'm in a hurry and there are 6 pages of posts here.
I'm running SK 64 "home" edition in my production machine at work. What is the best stable move for now: use the new repos for the "business ed."??? Can I do this: change the sources list for:

deb http://repository.solydxk.nl/ solydxk main upstream import
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian wheezy main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-backports main contrib non-free

Thanks!

And Godspeed, Arjen Balfoort! Good luck for the rest of the group too!

Gonzalo_VC: Where's the hurry! If your SolydXK HE works at the moment just wait and, in due course, your Update Manager should advise you that an upgrade is available. My understanding is that this will then automatically change your sources to new ones and upgrade your system to the new stable SolydXK. At this stage there is no necessity to do anything IMHO.

No, you cannot. The home editions are almost two years ahead of wheezy. Changing the sources.list like that, would be an exceptionally bad idea.

Tomorrow and as Jessie isn't Stable yet, the move will be to Testing.

I get the impression Gonzalo_VC is worried about this move and is trying to find a way to avoid it from happening to his production machine. I think the only way to do that would be to ignore all updates until Jessie has become Stable. Of course, that would mean no security updates either (but there might be a way around that...).

The transition is planned for tomorrow: http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5257

BEs will point to Debian Wheezy (not that much to update, except for LibreOffice).
HEs will point to Debian Jessie (indeed, still testing but very stable as it is now).

Of course, you can still ignore the updates but eventually you will have to change your sources.list.
In time I will remove the old Debian repositories from our server and I already asked NLUUG and Internode to stop mirroring those repositories.

OK, "Grizzer", I got you. I'll let the river flow, then. Cannot afford a breaking in that PC.
Godspeed SolydXK future!

PS thanks, Zill. It was not hurry, but a misunderstanding HE would become BE eventually, this way (new repos).

For those of us who use mirrors I trust that these will remain operational for a reasonable period after the transition has been completed. I am concerned that, if mirrors are pulled too early, some users will not be able to upgrade to the new sources and complete the necessary software upgrades. For reference, my sources.list is shown below:

Code: Select all

deb http://ftp.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/solydxk/packages/production/ solydxk main upstream import
deb http://ftp.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/solydxk/debian/production testing main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/solydxk/debian/production/multimedia testing main non-free
deb http://debian.solydxk.com/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://community.solydxk.com/production/ solydxk main
What is the new recommended sources.list for HE users currently using mirrors?

The mirrors are being changed as well.
Ignoring the blogs and posts here and stay with the mirrors is not a good idea.
I am communicating with the mirror maintainers and when/if they come available I'll blog that too.

So ATM mirrors aren't synchronized yet. and perhaps some of them won't support the transition. Is this correct?
I'm on nluug too: I wait patiently ;)
