I can't see it... :hmm: In the instructions you followed there was a hash mark (#) in front of the Testing repositories. That # disables a repository. In Synaptic, you go into Settings -> Repositories and check the box next to the (grayed out) Testing Repo to activate it. Reload and you should see ...

That's odd, it works from both KRunner and the Menu here. The Menu Item from RKWard puts it in the Menu twice - once under Education -> Mathematics and again under Education -> Science but the links are identical. Since you already had a version installed, maybe KRunner is looking at the wrong path...

Just put 0.53 in the 8.5 Testing CR.

Please let me know how it works for you.
It seems fine to me, but I'm not familiar with R and only have a passing acquaintance with statistics...

Definitely let us know! I can't fix an issue I don't know about.

This problem usually occurs when one packager puts a support library for his package into testing and a second packager builds a package that automatically uses it. Then the second packager moves his package to main but the first packager doesn't move his. Since packager two didn't build the library...

Well, it runs here - but after testing with my webcam (something it never occurred to me to use vlc for) I must say moving vlc 1.10 to restricted-main was premature. There are definitely new bugs in the webcam handling. I could sort of get mine to work, but not nearly as well as when I downgraded to...

Hmmm, I wonder why this one didn't hit me when I upgraded... Try enabling the testing repo deb http://main.mepis-deb.org/mepiscr/testrepo/ mepis85cr test That's where libraw1394-11 is at the moment. OK, Just moved libraw1394 to Main - too late for tonight's sync but should be OK tomorrow evening.

It appears to be OK now. I just did my Reload -> Mark All Upgrades -> Apply in Synaptic without either Testing CR enabled, just the MEPIS, debian, main CR & Restricted CR. As you can see the only packages removed were libvlc2 & libvlccore2, which were replaced by the newer libvlc5 & libvlccore4 Comm...

It looks like the sync to restricted-main didn't complete tonight. the newer ffmpeg & vlc were moved from restricted-testing to restricted-main, and the logs show that they were added successfully, so the upload to the restricted server must have timed out before completing. It should be OK by tomor...
