Adding SolydXK's repos to Debian?

Postby koesherbacon » 04 Dec 2017 20:25

I had a problem which doesn't need to be addressed any longer but long story short, the way I was able to solve it was by reinstalling my OS as Debian without SolydXK's iso. I wish I knew what the problem was with the installation USB of solydXK, but I guess it doesn't really matter since my laptop is working again.

I really want to use SolydXK's software repos again but I don't know if it's possible to add them to my /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

Is this possible? What is the correct procedure to use them and enable the gpg keys so apt continues to work properly?

Thanks a lot!

yes, you can solydxk-fying a debian. the procedure are:
1. add solydxk repo into your list. you should use the correct branch. the format is

Code: Select all

deb http://repository.solydxk.com/ <branch name> main upstream import
keep on mind that you'll need to change the correct branch (i.e: solyxk-8, solydxk-9, or solydxk-EE etc).
2. install the key. you can do it by either grabbing the key package from solydxk repo or use apt-key command.
3. do an "sudo apt-get update"
4. done.

after that you can install solydxk packages you want.

Goodness, I just realized that I never properly thanked you for this info! It works perfectly! :)

If anybody else would like to do this to their own Debian build, here's the terminal commands to automate adding solydxk's repo to your own sources.list.d directory. These tiny commands first make the solydxk.list, then imports SolydXK's gpg key. You'll notice there are 3 versions, you absolutely must make sure that whichever version of SolydXK you're adding matches your current Debian Release.
  • If you're using Debian Stable (Stretch), use the SolydXK-9 version.
  • If you're using Debian Testing (Buster), use the SolydXK-10 version.
  • If you're using Debian Old-Stable (Jesse), use the SolydXK-8 version.
  • Finally, I am not certain which version you should use if you're using Debian Unstable (Sid), but I would think it would also be SolydXK-10.

Code: Select all

SolydXK 9 (Stretch)
echo "deb http://repository.solydxk.com/ solydxk-9 main import rpi" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/solydxk.list ; sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys EADB2FB0BCA63C3C

SolydXK 10 (EE aka Buster)
echo "deb http://repository.solydxk.com/ solydxk-10 main import rpi" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/solydxk.list ; sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys EADB2FB0BCA63C3C

SolydXK 8 (Jesse)
echo "deb http://repository.solydxk.com/ solydxk-8 main import rpi" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/solydxk.list ; sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys EADB2FB0BCA63C3C
If you're also using another Debian-based Distro, I'll give you some hints here of which version would be best.
  • Voyager - 9
  • Sparky - 10
  • Emmabuntus - 9
  • MX - 9
  • antiX - 9
  • Netrunner - 10
Have a question about any other Debian-based distros? Ask me and I'll do my best to help you out!
