Installing LMMS 0.3.2 on 64studio 2.1

WARNING: Don't do this if you don't want to mess up your installation !!
Adding other repositories (like Lenny and Sid) is not recommended if you don't know apt pinning.

To install the latest version of LMMS, I simply added
deb lenny main
to the repositories in Synaptic.
Then I did a search for lmms , upgraded my lmms 0.2 installation , and reverted the repositories to the default list.

With 64Studio, the repositories I normally use for Synaptic are :

deb 64studio main
deb etch main contrib non-free
deb etch/updates main
deb etch-backports main
deb etch main
deb-src etch main

The online manual is getting better every time I check it out, and it's great to have some extra standard instruments and VST plugins working in LMMS now :)
