I read this article on the basics of pinning. I have a question, I installed debian 8 jessie. There are a few things that I am having trouble with.
I would like to install a few packages, like firefox. When I run apt-get install firefox I get this error:
apt-get install firefox Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package firefox is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'firefox' has no installation candidate
How can I find out which repositories to add to get the packages that I want?
I would like to keep the core stable repo but things like firefox and other apps I can pull from more bleeding edge repos.
How can I do this?
