  1. I needed to use this apt sources entry instead:

    deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/3v1deb edgy 3v1n0
    deb-src http://download.tuxfamily.org/3v1deb edgy 3v1n0

    because the server issued a redirect to another host that aptitude install (and propably apt-get) was not able to handle. aptitude update worked however.

  2. per Trevino’s site: http://3v1n0.tuxfamily.org/dists/edgy/3v1n0/

    the repos should be

    deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/3v1deb edgy 3v1n0
    deb-src http://download.tuxfamily.org/3v1deb edgy 3v1n0

    (replace edgy with dapper if needed)

    otherwise you get an error when trying to update (404 or something along those lines)…

    Hope this helps someone!

  3. Performance dropped a LOT!

  4. sorry for the stupid question, I’m brand new to ubuntu, have no idea in many areas of it.

    my question is: what does “edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file” mean? how do I do it?

    thanks a lot!

  5. :~$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    sudo: gedit: command not found

    can someone help me please?

  6. There’s no update instruction in this document. So it may not work. Please execute #apt-get update command before installing.
