i have the following in my /etc/apt/sources.list [1]

you can enable and disable the lines from synaptic, that's why i split
some repositories in several lines. Fresh RPMs was giving me troubles
- they are too fresh i guess. livna is for stuff like mp3 support. 

i've switched off planetccrma's core / updates because i pull those
from fedora.us 

ah, yeah, and macromedia is for flash plugin. i wish i havent ;-)
