Installing package from unstable onto stable bf2.4
I've been playing for about an hour now, and after much searching
google.co.uk/linux I think I'm only vaguely wiser: I want to install a
program from the unstable distrib since it's the program version I wish to
use due to enhanced features etc. I think I'm right in saying that I need
to add a line to my sources.list file to allow the unstable package list to
be downloaded but I'm also seeing things thay tell me to add a line to my
apt.conf to force stable to be the default distrib. After trying numerous
suggestions from my searches I still can't get apt-cache search to display
the relevant package and hence can't install it. The package does exist
(dansguardian for those interested) as I can find it manually on the debian
site. Wierdly I'm sure an older version of this package used to be in the
stable package list but it doesn't show anywhere at all now.
Can anyone shed some simple light on this situ? I guess I'm missing
something real obvious but I'm at a loss what it is!
Thanks for any response.
