RE: apt-get testing package on an otherwise stable box

Yes.  Change one of your entries in /etc/apt/sources.list from stable to
unstable, 'apt-get update', then 'apt-get install package_name'.  Then change
your edited entry in /etc/apt/sources.list back to stable, and 'apt-get update'.

Subject: apt-get testing package on an otherwise stable box

Is there a way you can install a package from the testing branch using apt-get,
from a box which is in every other way 'stable'? I remember seeing something
like this I think on debianplanet - but I can't now find the reference.

Whether you think you can,
Or whether you think you can't,
You're right.
