Re: how to easily get gnome 2.6 out of experimental ?

I found that the problem was mysteriously caused by my sources.list. I
used to get XFree86 4.3 from experimental, and just left experimental
there when the packages were moved to unstable. However, for some weird
reason, this same sources.list didn't work when I tried to grab the
Gnome 2.6 packages. Changing it to the following fixed the problem,
though I've no idea why.

	deb http://debian.lcs.mit.edu/debian unstable main contrib
	deb http://debian.lcs.mit.edu/debian ../project/experimental main
	# pick whatever mirror you want, of course

You may have unnecessary things in your sources.list, which seems to
have been my problem. Try starting over fresh with the bare minimum, and
adding sources one at a time.

Silly, I know, but if your install isn't brand new, little housekeeping 
may be in order.
