  • Entry for /etc/apt/sources.list and for /etc/fai/apt/sources.list:

  • The packages are signed with the gpg key of Thomas Lange. Two ways of getting the gpg key in your apt configuration
    gpg -a --recv-keys 074BCDE4; gpg -a --export 074BCDE4 | apt-key add -
    wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -

  • FAI packages from the official project repository or from a Debian mirror.
