LLE10100 : Howto change sources.list to install software from testing

Symptom:

You need to install software from the testing archive

Cause:

none

Solution:

You need to edit /etc/apt/sources.list so your distribution can find the software archives. This can be done by copying all the lines and changing stable (or etch) into testing.

The result might look like:

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 r4a _Etch_ - Official amd64 CD Binary-1 20080803-21:56]/ etch contrib main

deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ etch main non-free contrib
#deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free

deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ etch main
