Xfce 4.10 from debian experimental/ Siduction?
« on: March 26, 2013, 10:22:52 PM »
Hi

This a learn thing for me, I could setup and just use VSIDO but I would rather understand how it all hangs together. ;)

I have had a look at: preferences, apt.config and sources.list, and been here

I'm wondering which repos the xfce packages are being drawn from?

Cheers

in the repos, Debian sid is shown as sid

Code: [Select]
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free
Where Siduction is unstable

Code: [Select]
deb http://ftp.spline.de/pub/siduction/xfcenext unstable main
So ...

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get -t unstable install xfce4
Another great reason for Debian to get rid of the entire Sid/Unstable label and go with something like rolling

Thanks, and yes I agree that the sid/unstable is a pain! ;)

So you aren't getting anything from experimental now?

Yes... The main kernel is coming from Experimental... :D

It is parked there waiting for the Freeze to pass over, and Wheezy to go to stable...

Thats when you will see the 3.8 kernel and 4.10 Xfce4 hit Sid or even Testing

The first is aptosid so we can pull in all the cool stuff from there with kernel-remover the most important but there are others I cannot recall at the moment (been a long day)

The other is siduction and that is specifically for Xfce 4.10

Once Wheezy goes stable, a mass amount of testing space will be freed and you will see a lot of Sid transition at that time as it's current 'unstable apps' move to testing... (fricking freeze fecks up debian IMO)

Then you will see Xfce 4.10 move from Experimental to Sid and we can then rely on it from there

The issue is the freeze right now, it locks down a lot of stuff that has nothing to do with Wheezy/Testing/Stable, but all the things that could be happening if there was not a freeze
