Hello fellow superusers,

I installed a debian 10 with the first DVD out of the 3 DVDs set. My problem is, very often, when I install a new package with apt, from the Internet, debian asks for the DVD1. How can I configure debian so that it relies on Internet rather than DVDs? (I don't want to insert the DVDs each time).

Thank you very much, /cr!ptal

You can remove the CD from the sources.list found in the /etc/apt/ directory (note: you can use whatever editor you feel comfortable with).

sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list

You can find more information here. Also, you might want to run

sudo apt-get update 

To verify that it actually worked.

  • thank you, it works :-)
