Billy,
You mentioned above "You can always put the source
version in, which tends
to release sooner, but then you'll need to manually
upgrade." I have looked for several source packages
with apt search, show and can't find them. I have all
the deb src's listed in my sources.list. Would you
explain, please, how you access the source
files(mplayerplug-in for one, mozilla-mplayer-3.30
another) and get them into the cache file. Once there
I think I could compile/install. I'm sure I have
forgotten something as I've downloaded kernel source
before. Appreciate any enlightenment.
