You need to have some repo defined under /etc/apt/sources.list{,d/}
such as your query works.

I usually have the precompiled binaries in one repo and the sources
in another, to ease backporting:

deb http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/ sid main non-free contrib

Default Installing packages from Wheezy in Squeeze

Hello,
Is there an easy way of installing a package (namely virtinst) from
Wheezy in Squeeze? I've tried variations of

aptitude install -t wheezy virtinst
and
aptitude install virtinst/wheezy

but with no joy, It goes through the start process but says there's
nothing to update or upgrade

Thanks,
James
