Use "apt-get -f install" after installing a package with dependencies.
This will get packages from Debian. If it does need another package from
e.g. deb-multimedia, you have to use wget and dpkg again, and then you
know you have to monitor another package.

Realise that when you put a repo in your sources list, you normally give
control to that repo to install everything they want on your computer.
And to make a complete mess out of your computer. Is that good security?

I want to know exactly what packages are not coming from Debian.
