It's loading here, and I can install packages from it.
Could you copy & paste the source line that's failing?

Are the instructions on how to add the repos, at the toplevel of the mirror here: http://nl.mxrepo.com/, going to confuse some people?

They're telling how to add them for the original 'main.mepis-deb.org' repositories.

Sorry - I've been out this evening.

You didn't include the 'antix' part.

This loads okay

Thanks, both - it had to be something obvious. I'd checked it a few times, but there's none so blind as those who won't see!

Synaptic reloads blindingly fast now.

Slightly off-topic: "stable" is now jessie, so the sources.list is not really correct.

In the case of the antiX repo, 'deb http://antix.daveserver.info/stable stable main', I don't think the "stable" necessarily equates to "wheezy" or "jessie".

Both MX-14 and antiX-15-beta2-V_386-full have it enabled by default. MX-14 is based on wheezy, antiX-15.... is based on jessie. I didn't check some of the antiX-13.... and antiX-14.... isos I have, but I think they also have it enabled by default.

kmathern is correct. the stable in the antiX repo definition refers to the antiX stable, vs. antiX testing. The antiX installer will allow you to choose to follow the stable debian series (wheezy for 13.2 series or jessie for 15 series, explicitly called out as wheezy and jessie btw). If you choose "testing" during the installer setup, the repo definition will changes to antiX testing, as well as enable the debian testing sources.

Thanks for the replies, gentlemen.

I find this very confusing, and just wish everybody would stop using the word "stable" in connection
with Debian repositories.
