sources.list for bloody germans

Hi,

I had difficulties running  DVD's on my system so I added:

deb http://us.deb.devuan.org/merged/ ascii main non-free contrib
deb-src http://us.deb.devuan.org/merged/ ascii main non-free contrib

deb http://us.deb.devuan.org/merged/ ascii-security main non-free contrib
deb-src http://us.deb.devuan.org/merged/ ascii-security main non-free contrib

deb http://us.deb.devuan.org/merged/ ascii-updates main non-free contrib
deb-src http://us.deb.devuan.org/merged/ ascii-updates main non-free contrib

to my sources.list (everything is fine now, DVD's are showing)

But shouldn't I use instead of us.deb.devuan.org, the german de.deb.devuan.org?

#deb http://de.deb.devuan.org/merged/ ascii main non-free contrib
#deb-src http://de.deb.devuan.org/merged/ ascii main non-free contrib

#deb http://de.deb.devuan.org/merged/ ascii-security main non-free contrib
#deb-src http://de.deb.devuan.org/merged/ ascii-security main non-free contrib

#deb http://de.deb.devuan.org/merged/ ascii-updates main non-free contrib
#deb-src http://de.deb.devuan.org/merged/ ascii-updates main non-free contrib

I tried that out and got a long list of errors about double entries.

Do not understand the HOW and WHY
Thanks for help

Re: sources.list for bloody germans

You can drop the country code altogether. It doesn't really do anything - you just get redirected to a nearby mirror. (e.g. I'm in the US and I frequently get Italian or German mirrors. There is no US mirror.)

If you want to use a specific mirror, choose one from the list here: https://devuan.org/get-devuan

Re: sources.list for bloody germans

Hi roluan17,

I'm from Germany also. I have dropped all tries to add a country code or a specific mirror. I simply use:

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii main contrib non-free
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii-security main contrib non-free
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii-updates main contrib non-free
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii-backports main contrib non-free

This works fine.

Regards, rolfie

I'm +11 atm, summer time here. And I see no advantage in country codes either, just use the same as above.
