In chapter 5. The Debian package management system on page 166:

The item on components on the top of page 166 states that components "also specify when non-US software is to be used."

This should say "non-free software" instead. Components cannot be used to select non-US software.

Feedback

Jagadeesh K. Venugopal: I liked this book because, finally, an author has had the presence of mind to write a book that did not regurgitate Unix commands like 'ls' and 'vi' for the gazillionth time. [...] In summary, raise the quality of your Linux reading a few notches by purchasing this book, and raise the quality of your personal computer usage by installing debian or its derivatives.
