Re: mixing testing with stable
Yes, you can get security updates for testing. Add the line:
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
to /etc/apt/source.conf. They come out slower.
Went to mysql.org, but didn't find a deb package. I want to install a debian package so the
dependencies are correct. I'll try again, but will likely just go with the backports.
Thanks to everyone for responding. It helped me a lot.

Missiles of ligneous or osteal consistency have the potential of fracturing osseous structure,
but appellations will eternally remain innocuous.
