I have returned to Debian Squeeze. The reason that prompted me to return to the stable branch of Debian, (since I've always used Testing) has been the incorrect display of the typography using a kernel higher than version 2.6.32-5-686.
The main problem with taking this step is that I lose many packages that are in the repositories of Debian Testing and that Debian Stable does not have. Example of them are LibreOffice 3.4.3 y Turpial.
Luckily, in Debian there is an option to Apt called Apt-Pinning and you will wonder, what is that for? Well, without going into the technical grindstone, with Apt-Pinning I can use Debian Squeeze and at the same time, packages of Debian Wheezy. Cool right?
How do I do it?
After install Debian Squeeze and configure it, update it and so on, the first thing I do is add the repositories of Testing, so the file /etc/apt/sources.list looks like this:
# Repositorios Stable
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian squeeze main contrib non-free
# Repositorios Testing
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian wheezy main contrib non-free
Later I create the file / Etc / apt / preferences and I put this inside:
Pin: release n=stable
Pin: release n=testing
Now I open a terminal update the repositories.
$ sudo apt-get update
Now when I want to install Turpial for example I have two ways to do it in terminal:
$ sudo apt-get install turpial/testing
$ sudo apt-get -t testing install turpial
Y APT it is responsible for choosing only the necessary dependencies of one repository and the other. If you want more information about this, you can visit this link.
