How can I get it to work?apt will not automatically install packages from unstable if they aren't explicitly listed. Try installing the proper packages from unstable, this should fix it.
Umm, sure it will, that is the whole point of the '-t unstable' flag. 'apt-get -t unstable install gnome' works on my gnome1.4 testing box[at least it lists packages to install/upgrade...]. OP: usually apt will tell you what exactly are the unmet dependencies, just try to install them directly along with gnome or reporting the exact error message.
