    Seasons Greetings!
    I recently installed antiX17 and was pleased to find the option to run with Sid at install time.
    The install was without issue and I could see that I was using antixlinux sid repos.
    However, I did not have debian sid repos enabled (stretch-updates were enabled).

    Did I miss a step in the installer.
    I disabled stretch updates and my repos are now;

    /etc/apt/source.list.d/debian.list;

    # Note:If you want maximum stability, keep to the default Stable/stretch repos.
    # Stretch is the new stable release and will only recieve security 
    # updates, while Testing will be 'rolling'.
    
    # Debian Stable. Default for antiX-17.
    # Use for maximum stability INSTEAD of the 'rolling' TESTING release concept.
    # deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ stretch main contrib non-free 
    # deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free 
    # deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ stretch main contrib non-free

    Is the above correct?
    Is there anything I am missing here?

    Keep up the great work!

    You don’t need to enable the deb-src repos and we strongly advise against keeping the deb-multimedia repo enabled.

    It’s the most appropriate subforum for “antiX Sid debian repos” topic.
    FWIW, even though the subforum hierarchy was inherited from oldfourms…
    due to low volume of sid -related posts, this subforum had served as a catchall for “all things sid”.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I am still a bit confused as to the sid install option on the antiX installer
    I was thinking that the installer would auto set antiX sid repos plus Debian sid repos.
    Am I missing something here? (probably)

    I would have expected the Debian Sid repos to have been auto enabled…but in my case I am quite sure that no Debian repos were enabled.
    My install was just a “standard” install to SSD.
    All other aspects of the install appear to have worked OK.

    I just did a test on installing antiX-17 full 64 bit and choosing sid repo after starting the installer. Installed system correctly uses debian sid (and antiX sid) repo

    It does (checked during betatesting, and I tested just now to again confirm) (antiX17 full 64-bit, FWIW)

    I will install again soon on a spare SSD to check my process and update this thread…

    That is why I suggest md5sum checking at least a iso download before installing. Ghost problems like this show up when iso downloaded is not exact.

    So Anti, can I use this list for keeping up with the newest (like 17?), or do I need to point toward testing? and how stable is testing – remember, I haven’t used the cmd line and Linus in a few years! THX

    I think sid is the real deal, the rest is too boring and stale 🙂
    That multimedia repository many people think it is debian and it hasn’t been debian for a long while and there are problems with stuff they distribute, so be careful. It used to be hosted within debian but they got kicked out.

    Question: Is there a reason for using the old debian mirrors and not the deb.debian.org?

    I’m taking my tour in antix a little slow as I am adopting to new hw at the same time, and I don’t want the one transition to be mixed up with the other.

    That multimedia repository many people think

    Have you factchecked this? Are you certain the currently referenced “multimedia” repository is the same domain, same URL, as the earlier problematic one?
    Across recent antiX/MX discussions I have read the advisement “do no leave the multimedia repo line active in debian.list” ~~ enable only long enough to retrieve what you immediately need, then again disable the line. Also: “antiX packageinstaller and MX package installer handle this enable/disable chore automatically”

    deb.debian.org

    https://deb.debian.org/
    I visited using web browser, and noted an italicized disclaimer (only effective for use with apt in stretch or later).
    Although I don’t know the definitive reason “why still using old debian mirrors”, it makes sense (to me) to keep old so that current version users and antiX16 users are “all reading from the same page”.
