I think this may have been answered is some form earlier. I want to upgrade to distro 5.3 so I can get sylpheed 0.9.8  Can I--earlier post answer  "Edit /etc/apt/sources.list and change it to use the 'testing' branch instead of the 'stable' branch. You'll see a bunch of lines that are
commented out (they start with a #) and one line that's not. In the one line that's not commented, change the word 'stable' to 'testing' (no quotes). Save the file,
then run 'apt-get update' at the command line (again, no quotes).  I tried t his before and did apt-get install sylpheed and it gave me 0.9.7- want to use the new newsreader feature for yEnc.

You could try the following on a hard drive install of DSL:

After setting up apt, do
Code Sample
apt-get install gcc g++ make

Download latest source code of Sylpheed ( probably a * tar.gz file)

Code Sample
tar xzvf sylpheed  (hit tab to complete file name)

then change directory to the new one created (sylpheed without the tar.gz suffix - again tab completion helps)

Then compile, which is probably the usual
Code Sample
./configure && make && make install  (as root at least for the last step) [

It pays to read the README files and others that might be in the source tarball but this should be close. You might also, before trying this, want to do
Code Sample
apt-get install checkinstall

checkinstall makes it possible to compile and build your own deb package which is then easier to uninstall and gets added to the apt /dpkg database after you install your newly created deb  ( dpkg -i <packagename> )
