I just installed 64 studio and I must have erased something from the repository list trying to install cinelerra because I'm getting this messege. E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. E: Unable to lock the list directory W: Couldn't stat source package list http://http.us.debian.org sarge/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/http.us.debian.org_debian_dists_sarge_main_binary-amd64_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory) I'm feeling completely lost. Can someone helpe me out here. Incidently I was not able to install cinlerra 64bits. -Dan

Open up a terminal then change to the directory where you stored the tar.gz file e.g. cd Desktop ls *.tgz If you see the aptsources.tar.gz file, you're in the right place. Make a backup of your current apt directory into the current folder (if you want) with: sudo cp /etc/apt . -R Then do the following sudo tar -C /etc/apt/ -xvf aptsources.tar.gz This should extract the files into your apt folder. now do sudo apt-get update

nevermind

Try the latest release... 64studio 2.1 RC2 http://cdd.64studio.com/releases/64studio/ You could type them in by hand... but you could also just replace your sources.list files Download the following file: http://apt.harleystudio.co.za/misc/aptsources.tar.gz and unpack it inside your /etc/apt folder. Otherwise copy the entries inside the files into your files by hand... These are my (slightly edited) sources.list files. Cheers,

How do I extract something? I'm guessing I have to do it from the root terminal somehow, because when I tried using he default program I didn't have permission to extract it there? Is there anyway to grant me permission so I can accomplish these basic tasks? -Dan

Can someone give me a list of the repositories that are supposed to be standard with 64 studio so I can enter them all in again. -Dan
