There is an easier way. Download the source files from the unstable
distribution--find them using the packages search available at
www.debian.org; search for 'lyx' in the unstable tree. Then, use
dpkg-source -x *.dsc to unpack the source.

Next, go into the debianized source tree, edit debian/changelog to change
the version number to something like 1.0.4-1.slink. Run  'debian/rules
binary' as root and you will have a .deb file to install. You definitely
need many of the packages listed below, but the sgml packages are probably
not needed unless you require sgml support in lyx.

Note that I already did all of this for 1.0.2, 1.0.3, and last night for
1.0.4. If you do it my way, you have a debianized lyx that can be easily
replaced later using dpkg.
