Re: Building custom apps vs deb packages ...

Hash: SHA1

'k, someone needs to explain this whole apt-get thing to me, cause I'm confused 

Now, I'm trying to download postgresql-8.2 ... the only thing listed as 
"stable" is 7.4??  That is, like, such ancient technology that I wouldn't 
inflict it on anyone :(

8.1 is listed as either 'testing' or 'unstable' ... so, like, how does 
something get listed as "stable"?
