Stretchtedthin, i'll give it a go mate, but i'm unfamiliar with glsapt. i'm guessing i have to hit the update button, yes when i hover over the update button this seems to do just that. let me give it a go. ok ffmpeg-0.10.i586-5vl70 .txz not showing up, wait if its like synaptic i have to add testing repository? hold on let me did a little deeper. ok glsapt is very easy to understand, pref's, sources. I ticked the first testing and it required updating, i updated searched for package ffmpeg-0.10.i586-5vl70 .txz but its not showing up. I noticed a lot of other testing sources which one is it in mate?
