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: 
  Package: *
  Pin: release a=testing
  Pin-Priority: 900
  Package: *
  Pin: release a=unstable
  Pin-Priority: 500
  Package: *
  Pin: release o=Debian,a=sid
  Pin-Priority: 200
 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.
