    Running 17.1 and using the stable (Stretch) repositories. The only repository I have added is one I used to download a patch for xserver. I have not downloaded anything else from this repository.

    1. My antix.list file has two entries for stretch (stable):
    “deb http://iso.mxrepo.com/antix/stretch/ stretch main nosystemd
    #deb http://iso.mxrepo.com/antix/stretch/ stretch main nosystemd”

    QUESTION: Shouldn’t the second entry be “deb-src” rather than “deb”?

    2. The only repository enabled in my sources.list.d directory is the one in the debian.list file:
    “deb http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free”
    QUESTION: Are there security updates that are coming from other repositories that I should have enabled in my source lists?

    I am asking about this, because I am not getting security updates as regularly with antix as I was with my former distro Debian Wheezy.
    QUESTION: Is there a list of security updates made for stretch in the past month that I can compare to what is on my system?

    Thanks in advance.

    deb-src is the same repository but with source files instead of binaries
    you just have the same thing twice with a comment # in front of it

    If you do want to compile from source yes you should have deb-src, although I am not exactly sure if it is the same address.
    Otherwise you are ok.

    so those look correct. you’ve got the antiX repo, the debian stretch repo, the debian updates repo, and the security repo.

    they look like the same mirrors that I’m using, so you should see at least a few updates per week. and debian 9.5 just hit the debian repos, so you should see a relatively larger set of updates this week (although its still small when compared to some other point releases for debian.)

    hi dolphin_oracle and fungalnet,

    so these are the correct repositories (except for the absence of the deb-src) and the paucity of security updates is apparently normal for right now…

    Thanks.

    I guess this is solved (if someone can add that for me).
