On a computer running "stable" Debian, when trying to install a package which is in the unstable list on the Debian web site using the
aptitude install <package>/unstable command, I get output similar to this:
Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "<package>" Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "<package>" No packages will be installed, upgraded, or removed. 0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. Need to get 0 B of archives. After unpacking 0 B will be used.
What can I do to be able to install "unstable" packages? (I thought of adding the repository to
sources.list, but I don't want everything to start being installed from "unstable").
So: how can I install unstable packages (with using
/stable at the end of the package name)?
