Changing PPAs from lucid to radical
Is there a tool to update my PPA sources.list entries after upgrading?
I lately updated to Maverick and also I have a not as long checklist of PPAs. Exists a means to promptly transform the circulation from lucid to radical without making use of a full-screen editor?
See this inquiry and also solutions for all the details concerning PPAs. Nonetheless the straight solution is as adheres to:
A PPA is not limited to a certain release (like lucid, radical etc). The very same ppa generally has variations for several circulations and also this is the recommended means of moving ppa mores than to new circulation launches - where a lot of the initiative gets on the ppa proprietor.
So merely including back the ppa to your resources checklist will certainly make the radical variation of updates and also new plans from the ppa readily available quickly to you. Certainly, if the maintainer has actually not launched variations for radical yet, after that these will not be readily available currently, yet as quickly as these are uploaded they will certainly be grabbed "automagically" : - ).
If you are not making use of
add-apt-repository or giving the proper - line to synaptic (which are both circulation neutral) and also are straight editing and enhancing documents in
/etc/apt/sources.list.d or in synaptic, make sure to change any kind of event of words
