I have just started using Debian and am learning to find my way around it. I am wondering if anyone knows of some quality repositories to get software from. being a beginner, I find it difficult to download it every time and have to extract and install it from the terminal when i can just apt-get it. Preferably repositories focussed on hacking software e.g (packet sniffers, hex editors, ect) but general purpose ones would be good too.
Thanks.

I'm going to assume you're talking about a desktop machine here. Servers are a lot simpler than this.

For the most part, the standard debian repositories will cover you for everything you need. The one repository you might want is the backports one for when you want more up-to-date software (most of the repositories stuff is pretty outdated, which is why I avoid it for desktop use), and you'll probably want to enable the "non-free" and "contrib" components to your already existing sources (along with "main"). I think there is also different repositories for getting some codecs (w32codecs, for example) that you might want to add.

Other than that, the standard repos is all you really need. There are other repos for some third party software that gives you the bleeding edge updates (TOR and google chrome have their own), however the backports usually aren't far enough behind to warrant it.

If you *really* think you need more repositories, you can get some here, but most of them are for obscure third party applications.

Edit: Deleted smiley. Why is the ") combination considered a winky face, anyways?


The irony of man's condition is that the deepest need is to be free of the anxiety of death and annihilation; but it is life itself which awakens it, and so we must shrink from being fully alive.

I'd suggest taking a look at http://ubuntuforums.org/

Guarantee this has been covered ad-nauseum there. Also, www.linuxquestions.org

Those are two sites dedicated to Debian and Linux, respectively, so give it a look see if you don't find a quick answer here.

Somewhat correct there...Ubuntu IS NOT Debian...Is is built off Debian, however it has been bastardized and is not Debian. Debian answers are better found at some of these sites.

If you have any other questions, please let me know.

My apologies, I must have typed that response just a bit too fast. Thanks for the correction.
