    Software Sources

    I hoping I can get advice or instructions to make sure I have the correct software sources for my System 79 Serval Performance running Hardy Heron 8.04 Much appreciation for help and advice!

    Here's a screen shot of my current sources, I'm new to ubuntu but definitely pleased with my choices to move to linux and opensource software!

    Re: Software Sources

    You can select and remove that line with medibuntu.org gutsy
    Also you can uncheck the "partner" repositories, I don't think we'll see anything there soon

    edit: I don't use system 76, but that's how I would do it in Ubuntu

    Re: Software Sources

    Yea I thought that gutsy one didn't need to be there. I had a close friend help me get started some time ago and he has been un available to help with questions.

    Any other good sources I should know about that I could put in there? I'm still rather new and am not sure if I'm missing anything.

    Thanks for taking the time to help'

    Re: Software Sources

    well.. medibuntu's all I ever needed, maybe wine if you use it
    ( I don't, it's still not good for games )

    here are the instructions for a newer wine:

    Yea I have wine installed, I thought I would need it but haven't used it, well there was one time I almost installed a .exe program due to a mistake in downloading the wrong file lol...

    Thanks again!

    That list looks good.
