About repositories

Hello, just installed statler on another machine, and tried to install fuse(zx spectrum emulator), but can't find it using synaptic as well as apt-get. Is possible to access the debian repositories from crunchbang, even if they are the unstable ones?. On the home page of the autor, it states that fuse is on the debian repositories.

Although, you're you may be asking for trouble encounter borkage mixing stable, testing, unstable, or experimental packages.  As they say on the Debian site, go ahead but if anything breaks, you get to pick up the pieces and we get to laugh at you.  wink

Just like I cannot say it will NOT bork a system one cannot say it WILL bork a system

Re: About repositories

@_ThEcRoW, why install Statler? Waldorf is brand new and more up to date, is there a special reason?

Re: About repositories

^ Correct answer.

@OP: Yes, take Waldorf, it contains fuse from the Wheezy repos. Statler, based on Squeeze, will get oldstable in the next couple of weeks. Saves you the trouble of pinning packages and mixing repos.
