Re: upgrade to a lib in testing
To quote "Robin Rowe" <email@example.com>,
# Hi. I don't seem to have it right. I get an error on 'apt-get install

Use deb-src, trust me.
Here's what you do;
1) Temporary add a deb-src entry pointing to testing. You've done this
2) As root, do 'apt-get -b source libsdl1.1'. That'll build libsdl1.1
3) As root, do 'dpkg -i <.debs>', where <.debs> are the names of the
.deb files generated by 'apt-get -b source'..
If you just add a 'deb' line pointing to testing, and then 'apt-get
install something' from it, you're going to run into big problems, trust
me. And you'll get little sympathy :(
