XBian Repositories

Your XBian repos should usually be managed properly with the xbian-config update tool, but you may occasionally need to check, verify or change them manually in ”/etc/apt/sources.list” and ”/etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbian.list” , particularly if moving to staging or devel.
If your running latest Debian Stretch, the file ”/etc/apt/sources.list” should only contain below code:

deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ stretch main non-free

Stable

Stable is the currently supported stable build of XBian, although at this writing it is still considered a release candidate. To run stable (which you are running by default on first install) your ”/etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbian.list” file should look like below.

deb mirror://apt.xbian.org/mirror.txt      stable  main __ARCH__
### deb mirror://apt.xbian.org/mirror.txt  staging main __ARCH__
### deb mirror://apt.xbian.org/mirror.txt devel main __ARCH__

Staging ?

Staging is the build that contains near-stable packages which are close to being moved into stable. To switch to using staging, your ”/etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbian.list” file should look like below (note you should run sudo apt-get clean and sudo apt-get update after changing your sources list).

deb mirror://apt.xbian.org/mirror.txt      stable  main __ARCH__
deb mirror://apt.xbian.org/mirror.txt  staging main __ARCH__
### deb mirror://apt.xbian.org/mirror.txt devel main __ARCH__

Development

Devel is the build used for testing and debugging new packages; you should have no expectation of stability if using this build (however it often may work just fine). You should only use this build if you plan to assist the developers with debugging for future enhancements (or are just very brave). Note you must have the staging repo added as well if you want to run devel. To switch to using devel, your ”/etc/apt/sources.list.d/xbian.list” file should look like below.

deb mirror://apt.xbian.org/mirror.txt      stable  main __ARCH__
deb mirror://apt.xbian.org/mirror.txt  staging main __ARCH__
deb mirror://apt.xbian.org/mirror.txt devel main __ARCH__
