Re: evolution 1.2
Thanks for the info: for use of people as newbie as I am, and to avoid
them the searchings I did, here is how I have found to do (I have
testing version on my Power Book Wall Street):
- add in /etc/apt/source.list the lines corresponding to unstable and
- I added in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/70debconf the line:
"APT::Default-Release "testing"; "
but it did nothing good more, so I cancelled it.
- I created a file /etc/apt/prefetences, here is it:
Pin: release a=testing
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin: release o=Debian,a=sid
But when I was doing apt-get update, I was getting an error message:
"E: Invalid record in the preferences file, no Package header"
(I also tried without "o+Debian", same result)
so I cancelled this file as well.
So, I just added the lines for unstable and sid in source.list.
Then, I did apt-get install -t sid evolution, and it worked. I got
evolution 1.2, as I wanted, I had for this to download 25 Mo sources,
including upgrading for mozilla 1.3 (testing was at 1.0).
It looks to work since yesterday.
Then I cancelled the lines for sid in source.list.
Handmade, but it worked.
