    valid backports - current list

    I have been testing with Ubuntu near a month and overall its going great! But I am a little confused about backports. I have the following entries I got from the Unofficial Ubuntu 5.04 Starter Guide:

    ## Backports
    deb http://ubuntu-backports.mirrormax.net/ hoary-backports main universe multiverse restricted
    deb http://ubuntu-backports.mirrormax.net/ hoary-extras main universe multiverse restricted

    But reading stickies and other entries about current deb entries for backports I get the impression these maynot be the most current or only backport deb entries I should be using.

    It would be nice if there was a sticky listing ALL the current valid backport entries that could be cut and pasted into sources.list. Even a description of each entry and what its for would be nice, all in one entry.

    If this is not possible because I don't understand something I would appreciate advice on that too.

    Thanks,
    Rich

    Thanks for the list. I've made the update and received 32 new packages. I need to review the meaning of the universe multiverse etc. I know where it is and have read it but need to read it again. I'm dangerous now cause I think I'm starting to get the hang of this.

    Please! remove the marillat repositories people! they can cause a LOT of problems with ubuntu, espescially because things are going to be binary incompatible very VERY soon
