Re: Just one package from woody with apt-get?


I've done what you're describing with apt-get.

I have the woody sources in sources.list, but commented out until I want
a single package.

Then I uncomment the woody lines and do...

apt-get install <single package name>

And it just gets the most up to date version which is usually in woody.
For instance, Postgresql 7.
