New Deb user, old slack fan. On the sources.list file, if I want to use a source from apt-get.org and add that source to sources.list, do I need to comment out the debian security entry. It seems like I cannot successfully upgrade gnome to 2.2 or kde to 3.x. I have only found clear documentation on going from stable to testing or unstable, I would like to just upgrade my gnome from a backported source. Any experience with that. Thanks.
the problem you have, is that you used latest kde/gnome builds for sid instead of "backports" for woody, try out the following:
if you search for "kde" on apt-get.org then you get this result:
Karolinas KDE 3.1 packages for debian (Added 2002-11-28, last checked 2003-06-24) (Download as text)
just put the URLs your sources.list:
deb http://wh9.tu-dresden.de/kde3/karolina ./
deb-src http://wh9.tu-dresden.de/kde3/karolina ./
(deb-src isn't needed if you don't want to build the packages by your own...)
after adding these lines to your sources.list just run an
and the packages should be known to your system, now you can install kde 3.1 :)
same for gnome
Gnome2.2 backport for Debian woody. Also includes evolution 1.2.2, mozilla 1.2.1, gnucash 1.8.1 and galeon 1.2.7 among other things.
deb http://ftp.acc.umu.se/mirror/mirrors...ackports/woody gnome2.2/
deb-src http://ftp.acc.umu.se/mirror/mirrors...ackports/woody gnome2.2/
hope it worked :)
