Therefore you should tweak aptitude in such a way that the first solution would be the one you want. > Live-helper also supports an interactive stage, which creates the chroot, > installs the packages and then you're given a command line at which you > can do things interactively.

In order to upgrade existing KDE 4.3.4 installation, something like this should work (untested): # aptitude -t experimental install '?maintainer(Debian Qt/KDE Maintainers)~Aexperimental~i' or (a safer version): # aptitude -o 'Aptitude::ProblemResolver::Hints::experimental=approve ~Aexperimental' install '?maintainer(Debian Qt/KDE Maintainers)~Aexperimental~i'/experimental For new installations: # aptitude -t experimental install kde-standard or (safer version): # aptitude -o 'Aptitude::ProblemResolver::Hints::experimental=approve ~Aexperimental' install kde-standard/experimental You should not run into much troube unless there are packages with unresolvable dependencies installed. > Conclusion: I'm not able create a KDE 4.4.2 LiveCD at this point :-/ It has never been easy to deal with experimental because it is a dumping ground for lots stuff and typically only want a couple of packages. -- Modestas Vainius <firstname.lastname@example.org>
