Apt-get without debian sarge CDs

Hello Experts,

I have a remote server and I want to install some packages for my server development. But when I use apt-get to install it ask for debian installer CDs. Is there a solution to avoid this or is there something to add in my sources.list?


Thanks:)

It sounds like your configuration is looking for the CDs instead of an HTTP source.  I would go into the sources and add http sources like deb http://dotdeb.pimpmylinux.org/ sources main.  Also you can go into the configuration with dselect and choose the method to use for getting packages.  Usually http or FTP. Must be root thought to edit or go into dselect..

Correction:  should be sources all for the dotdeb location.  You can also add the ded-src http://dotdeb.pimpmylinux.org/ stable all
