Given I'm running Lenny and I would like to test out the new Chrony
(announced today) which is in Experimental, how can I do this without
upgrading my entire system to Experimental?
Easily. chrony_1.23-6rt1, the new version in Experimental, is just
chrony_1.23-6, the version in Lenny, with the real-time and mlockall()
features added. It has no dependencies not in Lenny. Add a line similar
to this to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ experimental main
As root, do 'apt-get update'
As root, do 'apt-get -t experimental install chrony'
Remove the experimental line from /etc/apt/sources.list if you want.
You can accomplish the same result with Aptitude or Synaptic, of course.
