Personal Notes: Debian 6 additional repositories

This is personal note for myself. All of my servers I bought is self-managed and most of them is Debian 6 (squezee). I need to add additional repositories beside the default ones.

Additional Debian 6 repositories added:

  • dotdeb repository –> for latest PHP and MySQL packages
  • debian-multmedia repository  –> for latest multimedia packages such as ffmpeg, mencoder, mplayer
  • debian-backports  –> additional software from Debian previous version that not included in main repository
