How do I change Oneiric to Natty in sources list? I want to know this cause Oneiric has a problem with the PPA.

Very much similar to Changing PPAs from Lucid to Maverick – Nitin Venkatesh Oct 14 '11 at 8:54
Messing with the software sources will likely break things. Make sure to have a good backup before beginning. – mikewhatever Oct 14 '11 at 9:07
"Very much similar to Changing PPAs from Lucid to Maverick" this article did not help me for my problem, yes its about the same but it doesn't give me the answers i want – Antonis Oct 14 '11 at 9:32

To change your personal PPAs:

  • Open Repositories and type the administrator password when asked;
  • Select the Other Software tab;
  • Select the PPA you want to edit and hit the Edit button;
  • In the Distribution field, just change the text oneiric to natty.

Be careful and remember, this operation may break things.

If Oneiric has "a problem" (you did not specify) with the PPA, it is likely that the PPA has not been updated to support Oneiric as yet.
