Posted by cuna on Sep. 09 2006,14:04OK, I'm very new to Linux.
I have a question. Please correct me at any point, I'm probably wrong on some of my assumptions anyway.
From what I've been able to figure out, I think that DSL is based on Debian Woodie... Right?
Hence apt-get points to: deb < http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ > oldstable main non-free contrib
I want to install geoip but it isn't listed on oldstable, it is only listed on stable and tetsing. If I were to try installing it from stable and/or testing.... Could I break DSL? I'm concerned on breaking dependancies and then not being able to install other things.
Thanks in advance

Why not test geoip on a live cd first? Then you'll know.
