3 weeks no network, then I upgraded Sid.....

Postby mzilikazi » 2007-06-22 23:47

I thought unstable was supposed to be well.....unstable? So much for that. The only issue I have seen so far is the removal of aptitude due to a dependency problem on libapt-pkg-libc6.3-6-3.11. That was an easy fix:
Code: Select all
apt-get install aptitude/experimental

Got Nvidia 100.14.09-1 too. All is well in Debian Unstable.

That was one boring upgrade.

How'd you get nVidia? It has a missing dependency in the unstable repos.

It's highly experimental ;)
If you don't already know how to add experimental repos to your sources.list then this is probably not what you want.

mmm

some rough definitions of what the different releases are.

experimental: new stuff, quite probablly broken but in need of testing by those with specific experiance.

unstable: new stuff that should be working but may suffer from transiant dependancy issues and issues that the maintainer missed.

testing: stuff from unstable after a settling time and some other criteria (less rc bugs, built on all architectures previous versions built on, no dependency issues etc).

stable: virtually no changes util there is a new release.

oldstable: a previous stable release that is still getting security support.
