Several months ago, my machine, a samsung, quit (sort won't save files and there's plenty of room on the hard drive).  I eventually developed a plan, in lieu of saving to a usb stick, being to put 7.1 on a new Lenovo Ideapad once 7.1 arrived and then move all my stuff over. Meanwhile I started using an old IBM T60P running debian wheezy, while keeping the 7.0 Vector workhorse machines running at the office. 7.1 has been a long time coming. I notice with debian that often, perhaps every week, I will get a warning "your systems needs to be updated," or "security updates are available."  I then go to synaptic package manager, click "mark all upgrades", usually two or three programs install, the warning sign disappears and I go about my business.. These updates don't seem to install programs, but rather, I think, utilities of some nature or another are installed.   I have no problem with this, though the wheezy programs are somewhat dated (often quite a bit out of date). For example, wheezy still has lyx 2.03, which is 3 or 4 versions out-of-date.  This never happened for long with Vector as I was almost always able to install new versions of software and kept my system up-to-date that way.

I don't recall that Vector issues update/security notices nearly as often. Yet my wordpress site was recently hacked (blacklisted, after I started maintaining it on the debian machine) and I never was hacked while maintaining it on my samsung..

So, finally, here is my question: Are these debian update/security notices needed and, if so, does hata_ph's regular posting of new software (which I read regularly) perform the same basic function?

The missing dependencies are in the untested repo. Line for slapt-getrc:

Of course, that adds it as disabled -- can be turned on/off by editing directly or by source selection in GSlapt. Looks like the testing repo isn't being used now on 7.1, and I think that plans are currently to abandon it. Not sure, and at this point subject to change anyway.

But having those packages moved from untested to extra without bringing all the deps along does point up a problem, especially when untested is regularly purged.

slapt-get --update
slapt-get --upgrade

on my netbook (32-bit VL 7.1) with the testing repository enabled I get the following errors:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  apr-util: Depends: apr >= 1.4.8-i586-1vl71
  mysql: Depends: zlib >= 1.2.8-i586-1vl71
  gnutls: Depends: zlib >= 1.2.8-i586-1vl71
  libimobiledevice: Depends: libplist >= 1.11-i586-1vl71
The following packages have been EXCLUDED:
  apr-util gambas2-runtime gnutls libgpod libimobiledevice usbmuxd
My exclude list in my slapt-getrc only includes kernel packages.

I tried using VL 7.1 RC2 with an external USB Hebrew/English keyboard.  While I had no problem making VL work with Hebrew, I did have problems with typing in any language.  I got double and triple characters.  This is probably just a keyboard setting that can be adjusted but I've never seen this problem before.  I've used this hardware configuration with other distros and it just works.
