Sparky Oldstable Repositories

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


Users of Debian “oldstable” branch should add Sparky tyche (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 tyche main
 deb-src tyche main
 deb core main
 deb-src core main

Create a preference file:

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

and paste into the file:

 Package: *
 Pin: release o=SparkyLinux
 Pin-Priority: 1001

Otherwise, install 'sparky-apt' and 'sparkyX-apt' (X=Sparky Version Number; 4,5, or 6) packages to do so.

Public key

Download the Sparky's Public Key as a “deb” package from:

Then install it:

 sudo dpkg -i /path/to/sparky-keyring_VERSION_all.deb
 sudo apt-key add /usr/share/keyrings/sparky.gpg.key

or get the key manually ('wget' has to be installed):

 wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -

Make sure you have 'apt-transport-https' package installed (Sparky up to 4.x only).
