Re: Installing Gnome 2.12 with apt-get...

I had the same problem using apt-get, and the advice I was given was to use the command:

aptitude -t experimental install ....

And this worked fine.  Think carefully, there is some strange behavior in the current package tree, (or I don't know what I'm doing, also an option).

You've been warned.

I thought it was ok too, but...

First of all, I do a :
apt-get install -t experimental gnome -s
Then, it says than gnome-desktop-environment as a version problem.
OK. So, I do a :
apt-get install -t experimental gnome gnome-desktop-environment -s
Then, it is ok for gnome-desktop-environment, but other packages have
the same problem. I would be a big big work to specify all dependencies
in the command line ;-)
Perhaps the problem is only for experimental because I remember I did
such thinks with unstable and it worked...

Thank you.
