apt-get to get unstable packages


Hi,
I want to install unstable version of guarddog firewall. i can see this package is available on "http://packages.debian.org/unstable/net/guarddog"
when i use "apt-get -t unstable install gaurddog", it reads package lists build dependency trees and says "Couldn't find package gaurddog".

does anybody has idea how to do it???
contents of /etc/apt/sources.list are as follows:--

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stable main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stable main non-free contrib
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US/ stable non-US main contrib non-free contrib
deb src://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US/ stable non-US main contrib non-free contrib

deb http://security.debian.org/debian/ stable/updates main contrib non-free


Thnaks in advance
Best Regards

that'll be because guard is spelt like that.

try this:

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main non-free contrib
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US/ unstable non-US main contrib non-free contrib
deb src://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US/ unstable non-US main contrib non-free contrib

deb http://security.debian.org/debian/ unstable/updates main contrib non-free

Youj're using Woody, dist-upgrade to Sarge or Sid.

With your favorite editor, change the work 'stable' for 'testing' or 'unstable'

save/exit

then do as root:

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

take the defaults in the configuration

if you want to stay in Woody, then try installing this firewall, it takes all of 5 minutes:

apt-get install firehol

I don't know if it's in Woody, sure is in Sarge, configure Firehol with the instructions in the sticky, reboot, voilá.

follow the instructions of the sticky Debian Configuration Post-Install and the following postings.

reboot

check it with ShieldsUp at grc.com, all this is explained step by step in the sticky at the top of the screen.
