Sparky Oldstable Repositories

Sparky of the oldstable line is based on and uses Debian “oldstable” packages.


Users of Debian “oldstable” branch should add Sparky potolo (oldstable) and core repositories to get access to Sparky repos:

 sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sparky.list

and paste into the file:

 deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/sparky.gpg.key] potolo main
 deb-src [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/sparky.gpg.key] potolo main
 deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/sparky.gpg.key] core main
 deb-src [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/sparky.gpg.key] core main

Sparky unstable repository (optional):

 sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sparky-unstable.list

and paste into the file:

 deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/sparky.gpg.key] unstable main
 deb-src [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/sparky.gpg.key] unstable main

Create a preference file:

 sudo nano /etc/apt/preferences.d/sparky

and paste into the file:

 Package: *
 Pin: release o=SparkyLinux
