Reported on: 2005-08-11

In chapter 4. Debian releases and archives on page 122:

Even though amd64 is not (yet) an official architecture, the Debian security team has declared that it will support the sarge release of the Debian AMD64 port, which was released shortly after the official sarge release.

Discussion

To receive security upgrades for an AMD64 system, add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

deb http://security.debian.org stable/updates main

then run

# aptitude update
# aptitude upgrade

on a regular basis.

Feedback

Andreas Bohle (Linux Magazin 08/2005, p. V): The book is for beginners with an interest in the technical aspects, just as much as it is for seasoned Debian users: not everyone is familiar with the diversity of configuration mechanisms and tools of the free distribution. Notwithstanding its distinctly theoretical approach, this tome excels with a substantial quantity of practical examples which illustrate the coherences [of the distribution] further.
