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

Nico Golde: Krafft manages to illustrate topics such as APT pinning, which have a reputation of being complicated and daunting, in an accessible way. [...] Even long-time users will most certainly find new and interesting stuff between the covers. [...] The book has the potential to become the future Debian Bible.
