Installing Linux software through repositories is the safe bet. In respect with Ubuntu, there are many software in Intrepid Ibex which I feel is crap. For eg: the “Hardware Drivers” does not have drivers for older kernels. On the other hand, there are many software (like Brasero, Transmission,Totem,VLC etc.) in Hardy that needs update, which the Hardy repositories have not provided till now. To bridge these gaps, I would like to provide you all with the repositories of Hardy and Intrepid.
NOTE: Please think twice before installing software from other Ubuntu version repositories. It may screw up your installation
HARDY HERON REPOSITORIES:
I have provided the older ones and two updates, just in case for those people who will want to install the older versions of software.
