Thanks for this Nate. Is unstable wheezy please? and if so do i just
change squeeze to wheezy in my /etc/apt/sources.list?
For version info: <http://www.debian.org/releases/>. Short version:
unstable is sid. Wheezy is testing.
For mixing stable and unstable: This can be hard, as basic libraries
have to be upgraded to their sid versions, and I would not recommend it
if you care about the system. One option is of course to witch to sid
and run that instead. A common solution is to use a backport
<http://wiki.debian.org/Backports>, and in this case the package you
want does not seem to have a backport.
In case you want to try it, attempting to create a backport package
yourself, as described at
<http://wiki.debian.org/SimpleBackportCreation>, is probably much less
risky than trying to use sid.
If you still want to use the package from sid (and need your system to
be stable), I recommend some kind of container, so that you have a sid
system installed without touching your squeeze, like in this (old)
