wheezy backports?


hi

I've add wheezy backports in /etc/apt/sources.list:
Code:
deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports wheezy-backports main contrib non-free
deb-src http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports wheezy-backports main contrib non-free
but get these problems:

Code:
# apt-get update

Backports is designed for Stable users who need a few newer packages. Wheezy is the "testing" branch and therefore has no "backports" repository.

More info here: http://backports.debian.org/

Is there a particular package/application you're looking for?

There is no reason to add the backports until the release goes stable.
