    Software & Updates Settings

    I'm running 13.04 x64 Pre-Release & wondered if it's a good or bad idea to have the Pre-Release Proposed Repository activated or not (I had it activated when I first installed, but think that an update from that repository might have broken my system meaning I had to do a re-install & update)?

    I don't recognize "Pre-Release" or "Pre-Release Proposed" as the name of any ubuntu repo. Your default installed /etc/apt/sources.list should look like this:

    Code:
    # See http://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes for how to upgrade to
    # newer versions of the distribution.
    deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring main restricted

    I'm meaning this

    I'm probably calling them repositories when they are something else, as I'm fairly new to Linux & Ubuntu I'm probably using the wrong name?

    That's fine as you have it now. That is a GUI front-end to the file /etc/apt/sources.list which I posted.

    Unless you are planning on doing bug testing, or have a specific reason, there isn't much point in enabling the proposed-repository.

    It's only used allow people to test new packages, and after they've been a while in the proposed and have proven to not cause troubles they are moved into normal update repositories.
