I recently reinstalled debian stable on my box, but I would like to run
some packages from testing. But after the reinstall I can't install
anything from the testing repository, I get messages of dependencies

pages for apt-* and dpkg for a clue but I havent found anything. Does
anyone now what's going on on or where I should look for a solution?
In http://www.debian.org/doc you have the APT HOWTO and there is is
esplained how to merge different repositories in a Debian box.
Yes I know, I have read it. The problem is I'm following the
instructions in that document, and installing packages from testing used
to work without a hitch before my reinstall with the same settings as
I have now.
Maybe you should post an example output.
This is the output I get when running "apt-get -t testing install

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
openoffice.org: Depends: openoffice.org-core (= 2.0.3-6) but it is
not going to be installed
Depends: openoffice.org-writer but it is not going to
Depends: openoffice.org-calc but it is not going to
Depends: openoffice.org-impress but it is not going
to be installed
Depends: openoffice.org-draw but it is not going to
Depends: openoffice.org-math but it is not going to
Depends: openoffice.org-base but it is not going to
