Default DELL sources.list FAIL - 04-04-2009, 06:07 AM

The /etc/apt/sources.list that Dell ships with the Mini 12 (running Ubuntu) is full of fail.
Code:
$ cat sources.list
deb http://dell-mini.archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ hardy main universe multiverse restricted
deb-src http://dell-mini.archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ hardy main universe multiverse restricted

deb http://dell-mini.archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ hardy-updates main universe multiverse restricted
deb-src http://dell-mini.archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ hardy-updates main universe multiverse restricted

deb http://dell-mini.archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ hardy-security main universe multiverse restricted
deb-src http://dell-mini.archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ hardy-security main universe multiverse restricted

deb http://dell-mini.archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ hardy-netbook-base main universe multiverse restricted
deb-src http://dell-mini.archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ hardy-netbook-base main universe multiverse restricted

deb http://dell-mini.archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ hardy-dell-mini main universe multiverse restricted
deb-src http://dell-mini.archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ hardy-dell-mini main universe multiverse restricted
When you try to do a apt-get update it just sits there and hangs....

Code:
$ sudo apt-get update
0% [Waiting for headers]                                         
0% [Waiting for headers]
0% [Waiting for headers]
0% [Waiting for headers]
Just hangs....

I called Dell to report their servers were down and they instead asked me if I had a problem with my bluetooth.

hahahaha
