Can I add repos manually?

Very good question I'm asking that myself too
for example I can't find gtk-gnutella in the repository's standard delivered and don't know also where to find and add repo's so if someone knows, let it know.

You can use normal debian repos. I think that elive uses debian stable or testing (not quite sure which one, but I would try stable) so debian sources will work.

But remember to not change the kernel or anything else in elive to something that is in debian repo, as that will give you so nasty problems.

And for ElonGlasb you can allways get single pieces of software from theyre authors, download the source and compile.
No automagical updates thou.

Repos can be added via synaptic, or by editting /etc/apt/apt.source or similiar with any text editor (not on elive at the moment so I cant check).

Thanks wasynyt, yes I know but it is off course easyer to install directly with apt-get and get all dependecy's resolved.

Yes offcourse it is easyer, but if you want something that is not in the repos and it is the only thing you want from that source. It will be better to just do it by hand and not bother with repos and spend time thinking what goes wrong when you do apt-get distupgrade.

Xorcerer, did you get your problem solved ?

I am sorry I hadn't been here for a while.
I may try to added the ubuntu repos later for I am too lazy to compile softwares myself.
I think I have got some ideas, but not much sure.
