Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have Debian 6.0.4, and I'm running an outdated Geany text editor package. There's no newer version available in the current stable repository, so I added testing packages to sources.list:

#debian testing
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free

And this is what I get for installation of the package:

I'm not sure it's good idea to install all of this. Why is it doing so much to my system just to update one text editor?

Is the version in backports still too old for your purposes? –  jw013 Mar 27 '12 at 1:36

Configure your /etc/apt/preferences file if you want to keep those sources and don't want to upgrade to testing. See man apt_preferences. –  Faheem Mitha Mar 28 '12 at 5:22

1 Answer 1

It brought in those many dependencies because you're upgrading to Testing.

This can be seen from the many GTK 3.0-related packages which are brought by GNOME 3, and due to the fact that kernel 2.6 (linux-headers-2.6.32-5-686) is being removed (because testing uses a more recent kernel).

If you want a more recent Geany on your stable Debian, I'd look for backports and, if none are available, build your own.

thanks, I found in backports version 0.2, it's not the latest but it will do, –  user1089548 Mar 27 '12 at 14:01
    
and what do you mean by building my own, to compile it from source code? –  user1089548 Mar 27 '12 at 14:03
    
@user1089548 yes. –  Renan Mar 27 '12 at 14:04
    
cool, thanks ;) –  user1089548 Mar 27 '12 at 14:04

@user1089548: You could make your own backport. It is not that hard. –  Faheem Mitha Mar 28 '12 at 5:23
