    How to remove add-apt-respository sources?

    Hi there. I added some PPA sources with add-apt-repository but they are not listed ind sources.list.... how could remove them again?
    the problem is that i added a ppa for xbmc svn version and now want to chance to another branch which uses older versions and so apt-get ignores these packages.
    thx

    Hi, the list is stored at /etc/apt/sources.list - you can edit it to add / remove sources.

    you can also use Synaptics to do it via GUI, you can also 'pin' a package so it won't be changed on updates, even if there is one available.

    Regards.

    Phill.

    If they are not listed in /etc/apt/sources.list, look in the folder /etc/apt/sources.list.d
