(Solved) How to convert Waldorf default repos to Stable/Wheezy repos?

Due to the latest sad news of Crunchbang being discontinued I thought about reverting to Debian Stable.
Yes, the title may sound lame but I want to be sure not to make a stupid mistake (I use *buntu on regular basis).
I searched Google for "Debian wheezy default repositories" or "Debian stable default repositories" but no ready to copy-paste list found.

Mu current sources.list

## CRUNCHBANG
## Compatible with Debian Wheezy, but use at your own risk.
deb http://packages.crunchbang.org/waldorf waldorf main
# deb-src http://packages.crunchbang.org/waldorf waldorf main

## DEBIAN
deb http://http.debian.net/debian wheezy main contrib non-free
# deb-src http://http.debian.net/debian wheezy main contrib non-free

## DEBIAN SECURITY
deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main
# deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main

# w,heezy-backports
deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy-backports main contrib non-free

deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy contrib main

I'd like to have contrib and non-free enabled also.
And what difference is between those two?:

deb http://http.debian.net/debian wheezy main contrib non-free
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy contrib main

Seem the same to me except one have non-free enabled.

Re: (Solved) How to convert Waldorf default repos to Stable/Wheezy repos?

just disable

# deb http://packages.crunchbang.org/waldorf waldorf main

and move /etc/apt/preferences away, or edit accordingly.

Re: (Solved) How to convert Waldorf default repos to Stable/Wheezy repos?

I haven't even thought about preferences.
I had:

Package: *
Pin: release a=waldorf
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: *
Pin: release a=wheezy
Pin-Priority: 500

And changed it to

Package: *
Pin: release a=wheezy
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: *
Pin: release a=wheezy-backports
Pin-Priority: 500

Thanks for help!

Ok. I'll stick to the sources.list you suggested. And removing preferences.

@pvsage: Thank you for that repo list update. I'm now running solid Wheezy stable; the dist-upgrade was minor (with a forced update of tint2) and I'm set.  big_smile

Oh, yes...Tint2.  The easier way would have been to purge tint2 and tint2conf first, then reinstall tint2.  The version of tint2 that comes with Waldorf was one of the handful of packages that corenominal built from a git-pull, and the functionality of tint2conf has since been added to the main tint2 package.  That's why there was a problem updating it.

Why would one need to remove the waldorf depo? Is it a better strategy? Would there any potential issue if I keep it unchanged?

Re: (Solved) How to convert Waldorf default repos to Stable/Wheezy repos?

Thanks damo and pvsage.

Gone through the steps just now.  Only that whenever I check on "Restart tint2" in menu, it gives me this message: (Openbox) Failed to execute child process "tint2restart" (No such file or directory)".  Is it possible to fix it?

So there you go then. Restart it manually, or check the script is OK.

Re: (Solved) How to convert Waldorf default repos to Stable/Wheezy repos?

Thank you so much, all. I was so bummed with the announcement, but now I can go on. It's such a headache to distro-hop on a workhorse computer and after #! all other distros just seemed unnecessarily distracting, complicated and/or unstable. High fives...nah, hugs...hugs all around. big_smile
