Well, I just built a modified apt package with the following

# See sources.list(5) for more information, especialy
# Remember that you can only use http, ftp or file URIs
# CDROMs are managed through the apt-cdrom tool.
deb potato main contrib non-free
deb potato/non-US main contrib
deb potato/updates main contrib non-free

# Uncomment if you want the apt-get source function to work
#deb-src potato main contrib non-free
#deb-src potato non-US

# Uncomment if you want KDE (unofficial and _not_ supported)
#deb potato kde contrib

I added the KDE section and replaced stable with potato. Unfortunately
we cannot be sure that potato will be stable already on Linuxtag.


apt ( frozen; urgency=low

  * Unofficial version for Linuxtag 2000, Stuttgart
  * modified sources.list file that uses German Debian mirrors and has a
    commented entry for KDE

( does not conflict with a possible NMU

Could you please test the package to make sure that there are no foolish
mistakes of mine in. If anybody does not agree with me or finds a
mistake then please speak up soon. You can find them at:

Is it possible, that you rebuild the boot-floppies using my modified
package of apt?

Marcello, how far is your Netscape package?

Greetings, Roland
