    If you could send me links regarding the packages that haven't moved, I can get them built.

    Ok, somehow I missed this, disregard my last post...waiting patiently

    I don't think I can help you with the links but I can give you a list of what packages show up as missing in Synaptic on my system, if that will help.

    You don't have to move over just yet, why the rush? I think the old mirrors are still being updated with new stuff. (I think)

    Re: Official Backports Launched!

    You're right, there are updates on the Mirrormax backports repo that aren't in the 'Official' one yet.
    I guess there's no harm in having both for now, as the packages in the new repo have been renamed and take precidence over the old ones.

    It's only listed as local/obsolete because you removed the old Backports repository and those packages are not available in the new Official Backports repository. This is nothing to worry about. These packages will soon be made available in the Official Backports repository.

    Thumbs up Re: Official Backports Launched!

    great work, thank you!

    I replaced:

    Code:
    deb http://ubuntu-backports.mirrormax.net/ hoary-backports main universe multiverse restricted
    by:

    Code:
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-backports main universe multiverse restricted
    and after an update, some files were updated (clearlooks, gimp, xchat, fileroller, easytag, doxygen).

    you rulez men.

    Yes, I knew that...I was just letting someone know that they were not there yet, in case it was an oversight. The solution is just to have both the old and new repos in your sources list for now, until everything is transferred over, or to just ignore the missing packages until they show up.

    To add the Official repositories to your /etc/apt/sources.list, add the following line

    Code:
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hoary-backports main universe multiverse restricted
    Backports are much appreciated.

    While the deb-src to the backports be enabled?
    I'm an open source hackery type of guy and lack of back-ports source is becoming awkward for me, I have some package conflicts I could fix if I had backports source (deb-src).

    I believe the Backports are built from Breezy sources, which are in the Breezy src repos.

    Re: Official Backports Launched!

    when i try to execute the command apt-get update at the end of the message I recieved an error message :

    gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
    Err http://us.archive.ubuntu.com hoary/main Packages
    Sub-process gzip returned an error code (1)
    Fetched 84.8kB in 4m37s (306B/s)
    Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...86/Packages.gz Sub-process gzip returned an error code (1)
    Reading package lists... Done
    W: Couldn't stat source package list http://us.archive.ubuntu.com hoary/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_hoary_main_bina ry-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
    W: Couldn't stat source package list http://us.archive.ubuntu.com hoary/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_hoary_main_bina ry-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
    W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
    E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    any familiar with these?
