Hi! I'm trying to install debian/unstable on my laptop and I badly need xfree86 4.3 there. I use aptitude for package management. So that's what I did: 1. Added deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian ../project/experimental main to my sources.list 2. Updated package lists using 'u' key in aptitude. But aptitude still shows me that I can't upgrade xfree86 packages because available version is 4.2-12 What am I doing wrong?
IIRC, experimental packages will not show up in the package archive. You either need to pin them their in your conifguration, or specify them on the command=line line, like so: apt-get install x-windows-system/experimental I am not sure if that is exactly right, but play with the syntax and it should get you what you need. -Roberto
