dist-upgrade . . . to what?
I can't find anything in the docs to give me a clue.
If I do apt-get dist-upgrade, how do I direct it which of [stable,
testing, unstable] to target? Or am I misunderstanding the whole thing?
Dist-upgrade seems to have been the cause of my present brokenness -- a
lot of packages got removed or downgraded. Right now I've
fiddled sources.list so only 'testing' stuff is visible, since that is
where I want to go. Isn't there a "better" way?
It looked as though the "-o=whatever" was the trick, but I can't put
anything there that doesn't get a complaint.
