Enable Unstable
#1
I have read the wiki page https://blog.mobian-project.org/posts/20...le-distro/ but I don't seem to have a file /extrepo_mobian.sources in /etc/apt/sources.list.d

I do have a file mobian.list which contains:

deb http://repo.mobian-project.org/ bullseye main non-free


so I am not sure how to proceed.

Hello,

As like for a Debian, the 'sources.list' must point to the selected version, in the Wik the following part seems the solution :
Quote:This way, you will be getting all your Mobian packages from 
Code:
https://repo.mobian-project.org/dists/unstable
 instead of 
Code:
https://repo.mobian-project.org/dists/mobian

No, Gribouille, the information on the wiki is out of date, as Mobian no longer contains the mentioned file or a file with similar details that can be changed. I assume that some changes were recently made to make Mobian closer to Debian Bullseye, but the devs have not provided updated instructions for enabling Mobian unstable. (Perhaps now, with the release of Bullseye, "Mobian unstable" will simply be plain Debian unstable, but I don’t know.)

I would like the info to this, as well.  I've still been getting (not getting actually) MMS that I don't know I got until I checked by issuing: sudo mmcli -m any --messging-list-sms, at which time i would get that there's no sms, or I'd get that there are 3 to 7 mms messages but don't know who from. I hear there's MMS support  now, in the Mobian Unstable, and would love to give that a try.

I am trying to get my pinephone to the point of being a everyday driver, so I need to be able to install some packages from unstable before switching back. The instructions in the wiki for unstable are no longer correct, I want to get unstable working in the correct way rather than using a hack which could leave me with broken important packages. I carried over working unstable settings on my old system board install but now with the new upgrade 3/23gb board I have a fresh install not a rolling upgrade.

When we have confirmed new unstable instructions please also update the wiki or PM me and I will post updates.

Hi! I guessed it and it works fine for me.  I did "sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mobian.list"  and it will show the "deb http://repo.mobian-project.org/ bullseye main non-free.  You just replace "bullseye" for "unstable" or "sid" and save. Then you do a sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade. Hope it works for you! (I also updated the Mobian wiki so it's up to date now)
