Re: [vox-tech] Apt vs. Compiling

Quoting Robert G. Scofield (scofield@omsoft.com):

Step 1.  Create /etc/apt/prefernces as follows:

Package: *
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin-Priority: 50

Step 2:  Add an "unstable" line to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
deb ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main non-free contrib
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src ftp://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main non-free contrib

Step 3:  Fetch k3b from the "unstable" branch (and any dependencies):

# apt-get update  &&  apt-get  -t unstable  install k3b

Step 4:  Profit!
