Sparky Testing Repositories

Sparky of the testing ((semi-)rolling) line is based on and uses Debian “testing” packages.


Users of Debian “testing” branch should add Sparky sisters (testing) 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] sisters main
 deb-src [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/sparky.gpg.key] sisters main
 deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/sparky.gpg.key] core main
 deb-src [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/sparky.gpg.key] 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_YYYYMMDD~sparky8' packages to do so.

 sudo dpkg -i /path/to/sparky-keyring_VERSION_all.deb
