Quick question abtut sources.list
#1
I have installed "Debian GNU/Linux trixie/sid". I chose the weekly builds (sid) due to some features working already.
My sources.list looks like this:

Code:
deb http://deb.debian.org/Debian trixie main non-free-firmware

I wonder if this is correct? Shouldn't there appear "sid" somewhere or isn't here at least missing kind of a version like oldstable, stable, testing, unstable, or experimental between the URL and "main"?

Is it possible to know from this sources.list that sid is installed?
Thanks for enlightening me :-)

yes, source line is correct.

let's start with debian. debian has relative codes, unstable, testing, stable and others. unstable and testing are in constant development. stable has roughly two year releases. trixie, bookworm, forky and bullseye are absolute codes. when release happens, relative codes jump one forward. however, unstable is forever as sid. current testing is trixie and current stable is bookworm.

what i know, mobian is based on either bookworm or trixie. using unstable/sid in mobian may cause unintended effects. mobian itself does not have unstable at all, they have staging, which i think is based on debian trixie.

i haven't used staging ever.
