Non-official repositories for Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
BreakMyGentoo is very popular among more experienced gentooers. Well, if they can break their boxes and have all the fun, why shouldn't we? So use this page for additional repositories which may or may not break your Ubuntu! These repositories are not supported. Do this at your own risk. If you do not know what BreakMyGentoo means, then this is not for you! You have been warned. Twice. To add repositories: AddingRepositoriesHowto
The Ubuntu Backports Project, started by Ubuntu Forums Supermoderator John Dong (jdong), contains desktop application backports. For up-to-date package listings and news, see The ubuntu-bp News Archive This project is community-driven -- give feedback and request new packages from our Sourceforge Project's homepage! Please note that the URIs given below are not currently available for public login; they are the master servers to the mirrors, from which you should download, are synchronised. The mirrors include http://public.planetmirror.com/pub/ubuntu-backports/ among others. Please see http://backports.ubuntuforums.org/ for more details and other mirror URIs. Stable Repository:

Note: Ubuntu is based on Debian's 'unstable' and 'testing' branches. If you're looking for something and can't find it in the universe or another repository in this section, you can always check http://www.apt-get.org in search of other package repositories. But be careful, the repositories listed at apt-get.org are at the absolute bottom of the support ladder, and can include illegal or even malicious packages, and sometimes tend to fail even in their native Debian environment.

Message-ID: <[email protected]https://www.ubuntulinux.org> Hi, I just wanted to say thanks and tell everyone that I successfully upgraded to Firefox 1.0 with the above mentioned stable repository. Great work! I really missed the find bar in Firefox in the Warty Distro. Now I can really take back the web! ;-) duffman25: I beleive the backports repo's are outdated. They are now an official part of ubuntu.
This note from Matthew5
Typing "BreakMyGentoo" as it is above creates a link to a non-existent page on the wiki. Could we change it to Break My Gentoo to enhance clarity and give a link to the actual site? I really doubt anyone looking at this page would find this confusing either way, I just think this would look better...I was going to make the change myself, but I thought it may be this way for a reason.
