non free debs separated from main in antiX repos

#1 Post by anticapitalista » Fri Sep 07, 2018 10:45 am

As a result of a request from one of our users, we have moved non free packages out of the antiX main folder to its own nonfree one. The new nonfree section applies to antiX stretch, testing and sid repos.

Users should change their /etc/apt/sources.d/antix.list if you want to upgrade non-free debs to this:

Code: Select all

# Use with Debian Stable/stretch repositories. Set as default for antiX-17. Note new repos
deb http://repo.antixlinux.com/stretch stretch main nosystemd nonfree

# Use with Debian Testing repositories.
#deb http://repo.antixlinux.com/testing testing main nosystemd nonfree

# Use with Debian Sid repositories.
#deb http://repo.antixlinux.com/stretch stretch main nosystemd nonfree
You should be prompted to make the change to antix.list. You should answer Y for this.

Of course, if you want to be clean/libre than do not use nonfree nor non-free in debian.list in the repo lists.

Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.
