      Hi,

      I read in some thread you don’t have lot of space to keep old version repositories active.
      But as the v15 arch i386 is the last version usable on i586/P5 do you think it could be possible to make an exception?
      (I understand retro-computing people number could be very low, and this request may be selfish).

      And if it’s not possible do you know if someone already created a mirror for this version?

      Best regards
      Vince

        Is not antiX 15 based on bullseye already. I take it you have it running on your box.

        so what does apt-cache policy leafpad show? Or any other package name You choose.

        Even running live. You should get return on something.

            Debian repos have been moved to their archive.

            Is not antiX 15 based on bullseye already.

            No, antiX 17.x was stretch, so antiX 15 can’t be bullseye.

            Citing from distrowatch:

            Each edition of antiX 15 is based on Debian “Jessie”, ships with version 4.0.5 of the Linux kernel and does not include systemd or systemd shims.

            – So you’ll have to set the debian apt repos in your system (/etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list) to the archived versions of the Jessie repos in the respective jessie subfolders of the debian archive. This works fine, I have done this with stretch based antiX 17.4.1 already (search antiX forum for details on this procedure).

            – But concerning the specific antiX 15 repos for Jessie: I have no clue whether these still exist. I know one last stretch repo copy is active (you’ll find it in the beforementioned thread about antiX 17) Maybe somebody has a private clone of them somewhere stored?

            But please keep in mind what anticapitalista has stated about the state of antiX 17 last year:

            I would not advise anyone to download and use antiX-17 series.
            It is no longer supported.

            I guess the same goes for all the former antiX versions, including antiX 15. That doesn’t mean you can’t do or try it anyway for specific needs.

              In fact all was already in place I was just not finding the correct repository to set for apt-mirror!
              Sorry for the noise and here the configuration file, in case it could help someone:

              ### antix ###
              # Use with Debian Stable/Jessie repositories. Set as default for antiX-15.1
              #deb http://antix.daveserver.info/jessie jessie main nosystemd
              deb http://repo.antixlinux.com/jessie jessie main nosystemd

              ### debian ###
              # Note:If you want maximum stability, keep to the default Stable/Jessie repos.
              # Jessie is the new stable release and will only recieve security
              # updates, while Testing will be ‘rolling’.
              #deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
              #deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
              deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
              deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-security jessie/updates main contrib non-free

                  Not sure why my brain misfired when I meant to type Jessie and typed Bullseye instead.

                  Glad this got sorted though. Enjoy I guess. Howdy and Welcome.
