I did a HD install with DSL, but the default sources.list file is pretty slim.
Hopefully there are some users here with repositories that are usefull, but won't break everthing.
Posted by ZoOp on June 21 2006,20:58Hi,
the file is thin because DSL is a small debian-like distro, with less library than other bigger distros (e.g. knoppix 5 f.ex.). So, you can find sources for other addresses, but most of the packages you would like to install in dsl won't automatically do so.
So let me formulate your question anew: is there someone who has a good sources.lst for DSL?

I add the sarge/main repository and did an upgrade. It added 21mb of used file space.
setting up bash (2-05b-26)
chmod: invalid mode --reference/etc/shells
dpkg:error processing bash (--configure)
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Error were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Using it for a 10 year old labtop running PII mmx mobile processor.
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Jan. 17 2007,23:49Thulemanden: Are you using DSL 3.2? If not, which version?
However, a solution here could be to load gnu-utils (which should replace chmod)

I am on 2.2 with some manual file upgrades. (My ISO burnings won't initiate at boot although the boot sequence is ok)
I did install gnu-utils yesterday following advice on the forum. Came up with error for missing busybox, which I couldn't install. Maybe I should just get the 3.2
My DSL runs apache2 web server on < http://22.214.171.124 > :-)
