New Unstable Directory for Debian

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in Linux, Open Source | Posted on 03-01-2001

This is a little old news but several people I have talked to haven’t heard so here it is. Change your /etc/apt/sources.list file and change the word potato or woody to “sid”. Sid is the latest most unstable release of the Debian Linux distribution. Basically if you want to run all of the latest updates to all of the current Linux packages use “sid”. If you are running a server, point it it to potato (current stable).
