Re: How to keep Iceweasel upgraded in #! with the Mozilla backport ...

nice thing, thanks!

but are there any ... sid-backports?
and another thing: I wouldn`t change the pinning yet because -as mentionable- i am on sid and not sure whether or not there are difficulties to be expected when changing the pinnig just the way you told us to...
any suggestions?

Not trying to be a jerk ... This thread has nothing to do w Sid though. Advise you to post a question in Off topic / General Chat section of the forums. Likely people will give you pointers.

Meanwhile ... STOP CRAPPING UP MY BABBLE HOW 2 with off-topic-ness ! tongue

Re: How to keep Iceweasel upgraded in #! with the Mozilla backport ...

To add (maybe to the original post):

If you want bleeding edge it is better to not install from the experimental repo. Instead, change the repo you're pulling from in the Mozilla BPO.

For beta:

# Mozilla backport
deb http://mozilla.debian.net/ wheezy-backports iceweasel-beta

For aurora:

# Mozilla backport
deb http://mozilla.debian.net/ wheezy-backports iceweasel-aurora

The rest of the instructions are the same. Beta tends to be pretty stable but I haven't had good luck with aurora.

Re: How to keep Iceweasel upgraded in #! with the Mozilla backport ...

^ Actually, annoyingbeggar's suggestion gives you the option of the latest stable (iceweasel), beta (iceweasel-beta), or alpha (iceweasel-aurora); from what I've read, the Aurora build lags just behind the daily builds.  I've been running Aurora for a couple weeks, and haven't noticed any issues...but then, I also haven't noticed any improvements over stable either. tongue

Re: How to keep Iceweasel upgraded in #! with the Mozilla backport ...

Actually the post is ok, it is for OP and is correct. The problem is when we begin to mix the branches. Sid works differently but you can use the same repo adjusted for Sid to have Beta/Aurora and btw, Aurora is damn stable and was always for me.

It just shows how confusing the Iceweasel thing is. wink

Re: How to keep Iceweasel upgraded in #! with the Mozilla backport ...

^ Damn, so much lagging. That is now interesting and is what I mean by the Iceweasel confusion.

But do not forget, I spoke mostly about Debian's regular Experimental, not from the Debian Mozilla backports if you just want the stable (currently at version 22) release on Sid. More confusion! big_smile

Bizzy, you should summarize all the possibilities, how and from where to install and upgrade to all the releases of Iceweasel on Debian and add it for all branches of Debian.

Re: How to keep Iceweasel upgraded in #! with the Mozilla backport ...

^ Haven't been following this thread ... lol turned into a trainwreck thanks in large part to my own comments. tongue

Yeah ... add the mozilla backport to sources.list. They are two different repo's ... Latest iceweasel + depends will be found in the Mozilla repo. "Tracking" backports ... not so sure about. The backports as far as I understand it are meant for people using Debian stable who want to cherry pick newer apps they want/need. Isn't really meant to be used for an all out upgrade rampage.

Would install anything you want from backports with "sudo apt-get install -t etcetcetc" Unless some repo is set ridiculously high (aka ... 1001 or higher < for whatever reason someone felt that needed.) It'll install the app you want + it's dependencies from the software repo you've selected. Notice you're using aptitude ... don't really know much about it ... Have always used apt, I'm sure it has the same capabilities and equivalent commands to use for "sudo apt-get install -t repoUwant packageUwant".

Once a package is manually installed, should upgrade no problems with "apt-get upgrade or apt-get dist-upgrade" in future. The vm I tested on did ... Upgraded IW from v 21.0 to 22.0 and depends when it came out and didn't upgrade anything else. That being things I wouldnt've wanted upgraded ... Really no need to jack up the pin-priority for backports far as I understand the topic. I used 200 ... and didn't run into problems. Mentioned ... IW + depends upgraded as desired/expected w no problems.


VLL! smile

Re: How to keep Iceweasel upgraded in #! with the Mozilla backport ...

I do not recommend to set the backports to anything than 100. That could be the result of your dependency problems. If you do that, you can immediately go and use Testing.

Re: How to keep Iceweasel upgraded in #! with the Mozilla backport ...

@CBiz:  The main differences 'twixt apt-get and aptitude are:
1.  If run without any arguments, aptitude has a fugly ncurses interface.
2.  While apt-get will either handle conflict resolution on its own or hold back packages, aptitude will give you a few choices for conflict resolution.

@KrunchTime:  I'm right there with ya; running with scissors (I mean, with Backports pinned at 900).  Only disappointment I've had so far is the newest kernel, and that's only because it feels the same as the stable kernel to me.
