Debian 7 minimal install on VM - can't install anything.
I'm having a play with VirtualBox and have installed Debian 7 from CD1, which gives a minimal setup. The VM seems to be working fine, but I can't install some packages.
The packages that I want are gedit, python-qt4, pyqt4-dev-tools, and python-pythonmagick. They do not appear to be in the repo. Other packages chosen at random are not there either. I've done apt-get update but no difference.
From memory (I'm at work at the moment) the sources list just has the CD and security wheezy main (?) repo listed.
Either I'm missing something fundamental, or I need to add another repository - if so, which one?
Thanks in advance.
