These repositories should contain most of the software you will want to install, allowing you not to rely on external sources.

Finding Software

There are several ways to learn what software included in Debian can cover your specific needs.

  • Use a package manager to browse software categories, sort them, and search through available packages.

  • Debtags web search provides means to search software according to their various facets (see Help page).

  • Search and browse packages on packages.debian.org. Each package may have a list of "recommended", "suggested" packages which complement the main package, and a list of packages with similar functionality. The new packages RSS feed lists packages recently added to Debian Unstable

  • snapshot.debian.org - the snapshot archive allows access to all past and current packages in the Debian archive based on dates and version numbers.
