    Security - Quick Question

    Installed 3.3 to the HD, read the security sticky.

    The link suggests adding sites to download from, but should we add all 3 they seem to be for different releases?

    After installing, I did a
    apt-get update
    with the original list then a
    apt-get -s upgrade
    and it wanted to install or upgrade 255 apps, some from differnt releases, should we do that, do I need to add sources to the list for security?

    Can someone clear this up, I think 3.3 is a Woody (testing) release, not Sid (unstable)?

    Put this in you /etc/apt/apt.conf and post the output of the apt-get -s upgrade.

    Code:
    APT::Get::Show-Versions "true";
    We just need to see this part here:

    Code:
    The following packages will be upgraded:
       apt (0.5.22 => 0.5.23)
       apt-show-versions (0.05 => 0.07)
       apt-utils (0.5.22 => 0.5.23)
       base-config (2.13 => 2.14)
       console-common (0.7.35 => 0.7.36)
       console-tools (0.2.3dbs-48 => 0.2.3dbs-49)
       cpp (3.3.2-2 => 3.3.3-2)
       debianutils (2.6.2 => 2.7.2)
       dpkg (1.10.18.1 => 1.10.19)
       dpkg-dev (1.10.18.1 => 1.10.19)
    [snip....]
    Generally speaking you should be alright doing an upgrade it is when you dist-upgrade that you can run into trouble with Knoppix.
