Sources.list MEPIS 11
From MEPIS Documentation Wiki
To take advantage of the Community Repository for MEPIS 11 (For other MEPIS versions, see the Sources.list page), you need to enable at least one of the four sections described in the introduction of the Community Repository page.
Before enabling the CR, please read the warnings in the Community Repository page, especially about the restricted and testing repos.
Method 1 - via Synaptic
Method 2 - Edit your sources.list directly
As root, edit the /etc/apt/sources.list and use copy and paste to replace all the contents of the file so it looks just like the list shown below. Note that the sign "#", as in front of the top directions below, serves to comment out a line of code so it is not read.
For more information how to edit your sources.list, see Editing sources.list

Troubleshooting: Check your preferences
Should already be set correctly by default, but make sure the preference is set to prefer highest version: Open Synaptic > Settings > Preferences > Distribution tab. Click the radio button for "Always prefer the highest version"
