    I forgot to say: for the time being limit yourself to packages from the stable repositories.

    Do not try to install the latest and greatest from anywhere else. If you do, you are looking for trouble and you will have to fix it yourself or file a bug report when you are absolutely certain that you did everything right on your side.
