I'm just reinstalling my Linux machine with Linux Mint. During mach bootstrap, I got the following error. I guess it's a problem with add-apt-repository not supporting anything other than Ubuntu and Debian. Executing as root: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mercurial-ppa/releases Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/add-apt-repository", line 91, in <module> sp = SoftwareProperties(options=options) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/SoftwareProperties.py", line 109, in __init__ self.reload_sourceslist() File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/SoftwareProperties.py", line 599, in reload_sourceslist self.distro.get_sources(self.sourceslist) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/aptsources/distro.py", line 89, in get_sources (self.id, self.codename)) aptsources.distro.NoDistroTemplateException: Error: could not find a distribution template for LinuxMint/rebecca
Boo. We should probably just install Mercurial from source, since the Linux packages for Mercurial have historically been junk.
Upstream fixed this problem.
