Hi all, I'm fairly new to linux so apologies if I'm being a complete plank.

I've just installed Freelink on an old LS2 I had lying around and I'm working through the guide to setting it up. I've tried to update apt and it'll download the packages but when it tries to read them I get

"Get:1 http://security.debian.org stable/updates/main Packages [196kB]

Reading Package Lists... Error!
E: Unable to parse package file /var/lib/apt/lists/mirrors.kernel.org_debian_dists_stable_main_binary-mipsel_Packages (1)
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

Any ideas where I'm going wrong?

Cheers

Matt

Doing some research in lunch break so can't test this idea yet, looking around am I correct in saying that the release that I would have installed would have been Etch? All references to Stable are going to be Lenny and Etch doesn't exist on most repositories now. If this is the case do I need to change the lines in source.list to :

deb http://archive.debian.org/debian etch main
deb-src http://archive.debian.org/debian etch main

Could this be the issue or is it more likely to be a corrupt file at /var/lib/apt/lists/mirrors.kernel.org_debian_dists_stable_main_binary-mipsel_Packages ??? If that's the case how do I deal with it?

Thanks again

Matt

If you run "cat /etc/debian_version" you should see the answer come back as 3.1 - which equates to the "sarge" release.
See http://www.debian.org/releases/ for the version to code name mapping.

I changed my /etc/sources.list to the following config which did the trick for me (not sure if the last two lines are correct, but at least this config helped me run "apt-get update"

Code:
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ sarge main contrib non-free
deb-src http://archive.debian.org/debian/ sarge main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free


Hope that helps! :D

I had to edit /etc/apt/sources.list instead but after I did the update worked fine, thanks!
