I'm pretty new to Linux here. I finished (re)installing Debian sarge last night and upgrading to a 2.6 kernel. Now I want to upgrade kopete (I am having issues staying connected to the AIM servers). Unfortunately, the latest version of kopete uses the newer version of some libraries (I already had to upgrade xlibs-dev) and I now need to upgrade Qt.
I'm assuming that since KDE uses Qt that I have the latest version of Qt that apt-get is going to find, so I'm also assuming that I'll have to upgrade the Qt libraries by hand. My question is: does anyone know of a way to upgrade Qt using apt-get or dpkg so I can avoid doing any real work
Also, in a more general sense, is it possible to have apt-get install the *latest* version of certain applications, or only the ones that are in the repositories? And if so, how?
Any help will be appreciated!
