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
that can't be met for everything. I have searched google and the man
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?
This is my /etc/apt/preferences
Pin: release a=stable
Pin: release a=testing
$ man apt_preferences 2>/dev/null | grep -A 1 'P < 0'
P < 0
prevents the version from being installed
Hmm, interesting. I've often wanted to be able to use aptitude to see
what is available to users of testing and unstable--but without having
any possibility of converting my system into testing or unstable.
This seems to suggest that I can use that syntax to allow me to put
testing in my sources.list without any risk of being able to install
anything from testing.
Is that correct?
